Legislature holds hearings on medical marijuana

Posted on February 27, 2012 by Dene Westbrook

Last week the House Judiciary Committee held hearings on medical marijuana and this week the hearings continue in both chambers. Last week the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony from the Prosecutors on issues dealing with medical marijuana. The House Committee is specifically focusing on House Bills 4834, 4851, 4853 and 4856.

They are exploring a number of concerns that have resulted from the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA).

Tomorrow afternoon the Senate Judiciary Committee is also focusing on medical marijuana by taking up Senate Bills 933 and 974.

Our communities have had a number of concerns in implementing this statute, and these bills seek to clarify some of the concerns expressed by those enforcing the statute.

For more information on the MMMA, please visit the League’s information page.
