The interest in Michigan’s state-sponsored medical cannabis industry educational sessions has been so great that regulators are moving one class to a larger venue and a sixth session has been added. According to a Detroit Free Press report, nearly 2,000 people have pre-registered for classes so far.
The Nov. 8 session has been moved from Oakland Community College in Farmington Hills to the Suburban Collection Showplace in nearby Novi. A second-afternoon session has been added on Nov. 15. The 9:00 a.m. session originally announced by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs is full and the agency is now only accepting registrations for the afternoon session.
According to LARA, the educational sessions are “designed to familiarize potential licensees with the application process” and METRC, the seed-to-sale software that will be used under Michigan’s new medical cannabis regime.
Members of the state Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulations will also be on hand to answer questions from individuals and entities interested in state cultivation, processor, transporter, dispensary, and compliance facility businesses.
The Nov. 9 and Nov. 15 events will also be streamed on the BMMR website; there is no cost for the educational sessions.
