819249 How to Make Legal Pot Work in Michigan Active State Lansing, MI, USA Lansing Ingham County MI US Michigan’s policy leaders must lay the groundwork for a safe and legal market in which consumers can gain access to marijuana products that have been tested to ensure they contain no dangerous chemicals or impurities.

Implementing a state-run regulatory structure and market for marijuana is a difficult and arduous task. There are dozens of important facets to consider, including what substances to test for, whether to allow for deliveries, how the program will overlap with the state’s still-developing medical marijuana program, collaborating with local governments, and more.

The state now has one year to adopt regulations that will help it carry out the new law. A year might sound like a long time, but marijuana regulations in other states often stretch hundreds of pages and Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs will likely need to host dozens of meetings to collect public feedback before proceeding. The initiative provides only cursory guidance on some key policy issues. Many elements of these regulations are highly technical and can range from the software integration requirements for businesses seeking licensees with the state to the specific forms of mold or bacteria for which marijuana must be tested.

455112 U.S. Skating Champ Denied Entry by Nonsensical Visa Policy Active Global Farmington Hills, MI, USA Farmington Hills Oakland County MI US Christina Carriera is a citizen and national of Canada currently lawfully present in the United States as an athlete performing at an internationally recognized level of performance. She is half of the two member team of Carriera/Pomomarenko, the highest ranked competitive junior ice dance team in the world as ranked by the governing body of the sport, the International Skating Union (ISU).

In May she applied to USCIS to be classified as an alien of extraordinary ability so as to be able to compete for the United States at all international events, including, hopefully, the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) denial of this petition was arbitrary and capricious in the extreme in that the USCIS’s weird conclusion that “silver and gold awards at national and international .. ice skating competitions,” are not “nationally or internationally recognized prizes or awards for excellence in the field of endeavor, because it is limited to members of that association and participants of those competitions” is entirely irrational, in that such limitations on the winners of such awards is completely unrelated to the ultimate issue of whether they are nationally or internationally recognized. In fact, World Junior Championship awards are the highest the world of junior ice dance skating has to offer. Furthermore, consistent application of the USCIS’s reasoning would also make the Heisman Trophy or the National Football League’s Most Valuable Player Award not a recognized prize or award for excellence in the field of endeavor, because the Heisman Trophy is limited to students at accredited universities and the MVP award to members of National Football League teams and, of course, to win either award one must necessarily have participated in college or NFL football games, respectively. 4. Indeed, the application of this reasoning would even make an Olympic Gold Medal not a nationally or internationally recognized award, since it too is awarded only to members of the various competing states’ Olympic teams who actually participate in the Olympic Games.

its nonsensical refusal to recognize her awards in the field of junior ice dancing (such as, to cite but one prominent example, the Gold Medal in the 2018 United States National Junior Championships) solely “because it is limited to members of that association and participants of those competitions” renders the decision denying this petition arbitrary, capricious, and in fact, absurd.

Inasmuch as the decision in this matter is arbitrary and capricious, an abuse of discretion, and not in accordance with law, it should be held unlawful and set aside. Further, consistent with the Instruction to the Form I-907 filed by Ms. Carriera in this matter, the USCIS should make a new decision on this petition within 15 days of its initial decision being set aside. 0000-00-00 00:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 michaelpiston 2018-10-30 03:39:26 no 0 317143 Proj:754992 91 47346 51293 2019-05-09 13:48:55 42.4989936 No -83.3677168 Yes 954079 yes Project banner 455112.jpg 0 0 0

280915 Can Health Care Be Disrupted? Warby Parker Offers a Clue Active Michigan, USA MI US The glasses maker Warby Parker has an app that allows customers to take an online vision test, instead of trekking down to see an optometrist.  But Michigan is one of 11 states where so-called telemedicine products like app-based vision tests are illegal. These states hold 20% of the U.S. population and include Maryland, New Jersey, Georgia and South Carolina. This experience spotlights one of the biggest questions facing the new economy: Can the same disruptive forces reshaping retail and entertainment really take on the entrenched $7 trillion health-care sector? 0000-00-00 00:00:00 0000-00-00 00:00:00 wsj 2018-07-13 06:02:17 no 0 316049 Proj:351644 107 60037 51243 2018-07-19 06:07:52 44.3148443 No -85.6023643 Yes 719188 no Project banner 280915.jpg 0 0 0
