February 25, 2019 – LARA’s Bureau of Marijuana Regulation (BMR) is facilitating four stakeholder work groups to discuss and provide suggestions on regulatory topics related to the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act (MRTMA):
Individuals interested in participating in an adult-use marijuana workgroup must send an email to LARA-MedicalMarijuana@michigan.gov with WORK GROUP in the subject line – the body of the email must contain the following information:
The Bureau will consider all email requests that meet these requirements, and any additional relevant information when establishing the stakeholder work groups. Requests and inquiries made via telephone or to other Bureau contacts may not be accepted.
The deadline to email your request to participate in the adult-use marijuana workgroups is Monday, March 4, 2019 at 9:00 AM. Selections for the work groups will be announced by Monday, March 11, 2019 and the workgroups will be scheduled for the end of March. If you are chosen for a work group you will be notified of the date, time and location.
The purpose of these workgroups is to gather information only. The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is in the process of starting the formal rulemaking process pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act of 1969. To that end, the purpose of the workgroups is to seek input on the regulatory topics. All interested members of the public – whether selected to participate in the work groups or not – will be able to participate in the permanent rulemaking process that includes public review and comment.
