As the issues related to marijuana grow in Michigan, and a petition to put full recreational marijuana legalization on the ballot is expected to be reviewed, a lot is happening at the State Bar of Michigan these days. Not the least of which is new committee appointments for the Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA).
Our team has been appointed.
Our very own Bob Hendricks and Ben Wrigley have been chosen to serve on two of the work groups of the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation (BMMR). Wrigley will serve on the Secure Transporter group and Hendricks on the Provisioning Center group.
And even more big news!
In addition, Hendricks is succeeding to the presidency of the State Bar of Michigan (SBM) Marijuana Law Section next year. The current president, who took office at the section’s annual meeting held at the SBM NEXT Conference at the end of September, is Mary Chartier-Mittendorf of Chartier & Nyamfukudza in East Lansing, with whom Hendricks sometimes co-presents on marijuana business law.
“I was always member of the corporate section,” says Hendricks, “But it’s been interesting and it’s been fun working with the State Bar. I have been very pleased to become more active, and I’m really proud of our bar association for its support of the section. I believe we’re still the only bar association in the nation that has a marijuana law section.”
Congratulations to Bob and Ben!
