Responsibly Implementing Amendment 64

Executive Director Medical Marijuana Industry Group

Editor’s Note: The following message to members of the General Assembly appeared in an ad in the March 29 issue.

A year ago, the Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division (MMED) announced that without additional funding it would be forced to lay off most of its staff. In response, my organization, the Medical Marijuana Industry Group, led the effort to pass an emergency funding bill, HB 1358, that passed the House but died in the Senate. The recently published MMED audit is the direct result of this inaction.
