    An Update on Recreational Licensing in Michigan with MRA Executive Director, Andrew Brisbo

    About this Event

    On Nov. 1, LARA’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency started receiving applications for the newly approved adult-use recreational cannabis industry in Michigan.

    This initiative is headed by MRA Executive Director, Andrew Brisbo, who is responsible for carrying out the Proposal 1 ballot initiative. This proposal legalized adult-use marijuana and created a state licensing system for respective businesses.

    Ann Arbor-based Exclusive Brands became the first-ever recreational marijuana business license applicant, submitting just after midnight on November 1st. Since then, dozens of applicants have begun the process.

    Due to the extensive process and high volume of applications, recreational cannabis sales likely won’t begin until March or April of 2020.

    On December 18th, Andrew Brisbo will speak at the Benzinga Headquarters, providing an update on the approval process and his projections on the imminent cannabis sales.

    Agenda:

    5:00pm: Guests arrive/initial networking
