LANSING – Attorney General Dana Nessel praised Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order 2019-7, saying: “I support Governor Whitmer’s executive order establishing the Marijuana Regulatory Agency.  A dedicated state agency that can administer the functions and responsibilities under the medical and recreational (adult-use) marijuana statutes will create numerous efficiencies, including faster processing of marijuana applications, and better serve medical marijuana patients and the developing industry.”
