This Thursday at Bloom: Learn about the pending cannabis bills with Robin Schneider
MEDICAL CANNABIS ADVOCATE TO DISCUSS STATUS OF PENDING MI BILLS
Ann Arbor, MI, October 30, 2015—As MiLegalize works tirelessly to collect the necessary signatures to place a sane cannabis policy proposal on next year’s ballot, the Michigan legislature is busy considering three bills that will cease to be relevant if the ballot proposal passes and will set back the cannabis industry by decades if the ballot fails:
- HB 4209: Establishes a major new governmental department to handle medical marijuana growing, selling, transportation, and production.
- HB 4210 re-legalizes the use of concentrated and non-smoked forms of cannabis for registered patients, and controls their production, labeling, and transfer.
- HB 4827 establishes a seed-to-sale marijuana tracking program for commercial entities.
The bills have already passed in the House Judiciary Committee. Will they pass in the full House and in the Senate?
What will the bills look like then?
How will they affect members of the cannabis community?
Women Grow invites you to join Robin Schneider, an expert and insider on Michigan’s cannabis legislation, in a discussion on the current status of these bills in the Michigan legislature. This event is an opportunity to learn about the legal cannabis industry and connect with the entrepreneurs shaping its future.
Where: Bloom City Club, 423 Miller Ave, Ann Arbor, MI 48103
When: Thursday November 5 from 8 to 10 p.m.
This is a ticketed event that is open to the public. Tickets may be purchased at Eventbrite.
