September 22, 2016 FLINT- A new conference intends to clear the haze surrounding the new medical marijuana business opportunities offered by the Medical Marijuana Facilities Act, which was signed into law by Governor Snyder on September 21.

The Conference is titled 'Understanding the New Medical Marijuana Business Laws in Michigan' and features some of the state's most knowledgeable attorneys as speakers and presenters. Included in that list of lawyers is:

Bernard Jocuns, Chairman of the Marijuana Law Section of the Michigan Bar Association
Michael Komorn, 2015 winner of the State Bar Association's 'Right To Counsel' award.
Matthew Abel, Executive Director of the Michigan chapter of NORML
Daniel Grow, representing clients in Michigan's western and northern regions
Bruce Leach, speaker at national conferences

Seminar topics include explaining the language of the new Act; who will qualify for business licenses, and who will not; guiding businesspersons through the process of enacting local ordinances; difficulties experienced by entrepreneurs in Michigan's western and northern regions; decoding the new laws regarding personal and professional creation of non-smoked forms of marijuana medicines; and others.

Event host Rick Thompson brought a similar conference to the same hotel one year ago with the Michigan Cannabis Business Development Conference. That event received media coverage, was well-attended and highly praised. "Genesee County has been a leader in protecting and licensing medical marijuana businesses," said Thompson, who is a Flint native. "The Flint area should be rewarded for their support with some much-needed economic stimulation."

Also appearing as industry experts are Justin Dunaskiss, a Lansing-based lobbyist, Debra Young, who will speak on the petitioning process, and Jamie Lowell of Ypsilanti's 3rd Coast, who in 2009 co-founded the first licensed medical marijuana dispensary in the U.S. east of the Mississippi River.

"The times are changing, the rules are changing, and people need to know where the new legal boundaries are," Thompson added.
