The Medical Marijuana Oversight Working Group hosts a public information hearing on Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2016, at 2 p.m. at the State Capitol.

The meeting agenda includes an update on the state’s patient registry and dispensary programs.

The Act 230 Medical Marijuana Working Group was established by the legislature to develop and recommend legislation to improve the medical marijuana dispensary system, and to ensure safe and legal access to legal marijuana for qualifying patients.

The Act 230 Working Group is tasked with addressing issues related to the medical marijuana dispensary program in the State, including operations, edibles, and any issues the Working Group finds relevant to the medical marijuana dispensary program.

Act 230 requests the Working Group submit an interim report of its findings and recommendations to the Legislature no later than 20 days prior to the convening of the regular session of 2017, and a final report of the working group’s findings and recommendations to the Legislature no later than 20 days prior to the convening of the regular session of 2018.
