The MMA will host a virtual briefing on April 6, 1-2:30 p.m., to provide updates about regulatory developments at the Cannabis Control Commission and how three key areas — host community agreements, municipal equity, and social consumption — relate to municipalities.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from municipal panels discussing these developments in cannabis industry regulation, ask questions or offer comments.
A comprehensive cannabis law enacted in August 2022 allows the CCC to create additional regulations related to host community agreements and community impact fees. It also calls for the CCC to create new regulations to establish minimum standards for host communities to promote full participation in the cannabis industry by those who have been disproportionately harmed by the War on Drugs.
The law also created a mechanism for municipalities to allow for on-site consumption of cannabis products, and requires the CCC to promulgate new rules around social consumption establishments.
The briefing will be conducted as a free Zoom webinar. Advance registration is required. This is an MMA members-only event.
