In November, Michigan voters approved Proposal 1.  It legalizes recreational use of marijuana.  Throughout the year, the state began licensing medical marijuana dispensaries.  It’s going to take some time, but in the not-so-distant future, Michigan will have a fully realized marijuana industry.  WEMU’s David Fair takes a look at the year in marijuana that was 2018 with an eye towards 2019.

Guests:

Jamie Lowell, Board member of MI Legalize and stakeholder in the 3rd Coast Compassion Center in Ypsilanti.

Rick Thompson, Owner of the Michigan Cannibis Development Group and a board member of the Michigan Chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws).
