How to Make Legal Pot Work in Michigan
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.

San Bernardino's Corrupt and Illegal Cannabis Licensing Program
This project addresses facts that appear to show both intentional City corruption and potential City incompetence. Specifically, the City of San Bernardino issued cannabis licenses to a number of businesses who it is illegal to issue permits to. These businesses were shown to be too close to “sensitive uses” under the Municipal Code and violated the General Plan. Despite the fact that the City Council was advised of this by City staff, the City Attorney, some of the applicants who did not receive licenses, and the general public, the City Council went forward with awarding those permits. This appears to have been done knowingly by at least some within the City. The evidence suggests that there was a “pay for play” scheme involving the marijuana permitees, the City Manager (Defendant Andrea Miller) and the former Mayor (Carey Davis). This is because the City Manager (Defendant Andrea Miller) set up meetings between the former Mayor (Carey Davis)’s campaign funder, Scott Beard, and the marijuana groups that should have been disqualified under the Municipal Code and State Law. The marijuana groups texted to confirm campaign contributions to the former Mayor’s campaign, both on and off the books. These same businesses received marijuana permits from the City Council despite being disqualified. This was accomplished through a combination of intentional acts by some within the City, and incompetence through others at the City directed by those taking intentional acts.
