The Marijuana Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan will host its 2017 Fall Conference: “New Horizons for Legalized Marijuana – The Facilities Licensing Act and Beyond” Thursday through Saturday, Sept. 7-9, at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Detroit.

This year’s annual conference offers networking opportunities and is filled with critical information for attorneys and those who own cannabis businesses. The conference will present sessions on the new Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act, including presentations on LARA’s Dec. 15 roll out of rules and regulations for new cannabis businesses; an overview of adopted municipal ordinances, tax issues, and banking complications for state-legal activities; and more.

In addition, attendees will hear from senior LARA representatives; a case law overview and update; and legislative updates. There will be presentations on federal risks related to marijuana businesses, as well as a special track for criminal defense attorneys on handling issues such as Section 8 hearings, motions to raise under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, and issues related to marijuana and driving.
