A chapter in Michigan’s medical marijuana history came to a close Thursday in Lansing, as the licensing board appointed by former Gov. Rick Snyder met for the last time.
As of 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, April 30, an executive order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer will take effect -- transferring the licensing power directly to staff in the Marijuana Regulatory Agency, the new name for the Bureau of Marijuana Regulation.
In its nearly two-year tenure, the Medical Marihuana Licensing Board reviewed hundreds of business applicants and approved more than 140 licenses.
