Marijuana has been in the decriminalization process since 1973 with many states over the years passing laws to either authorize the use of marijuana or prohibit it. It is time to stop treating marijuana like a deadly drug, when science and public opinion agree that it is relatively safe for adult recreational and medical use. With recreational and medical marijuana on the verge of nationwide legalization, marijuana growers and dispensaries and grow facilities popping up everywhere.

Michigan regulators are hosting a series of educational sessions in September for potential recreational cannabis business applicants, with online applications starting Nov. 1.
The five sessions are designed to demonstrate the online business license application process.
Under Michigan’s adult-use marijuana law, local jurisdictions decide whether to permit or ban commercial rec MJ activity.
There is no cost to the educational sessions, but – because of space constraints – potential applicants and their representatives should register as soon as possible.
Each presentation will last about three hours.
For those unable to attend in person, application instructions, checklists and additional resources will be made available in the future and posted on the state program’s website.
Here is a schedule for the five sessions (times ET) and the registration links (click the city):
- Thursday, Sept. 5: Detroit, 9 a.m.
- Thursday Sept. 12: Saginaw, 2 p.m.
- Thursday, Sept. 19: Kalamazoo, 10 a.m.
- Thursday, Sept. 26: Lansing, 9 a.m.
- Monday, Sept. 30: Traverse City, 1 p.m.
Existing medical marijuana business owners are encouraged to participate in customized demonstrations.
