The Michigan Municipal League hosted a session on the Medical Marijuana Act and Your Community during our annual Capital Conference in Lansing April 5, 2011. The session was attended by more than 40 officials representing municipalities from throughout the state. Two local TV news crews from the Lansing area stopped by as well to interview panelists and attendees. Attorney Matt Newburg of Newburg Law moderated the session, opening with an overview on the history of the ballot initiative and the profound reactions it has evoked from citizens, the legal community, the federal government, law enforcement and local government officials. The panel included Hubbard Law attorney Mike Woodworth, Eaton County Prosecutor Jeff Sauter, Lansing City Attorney Brig Smith and Professor Gerald Fisher of Cooley Law School, author of the new-famous White Paper (which can be accessed via the medical marijuana resource page on mml.org).
