Michigan regulators announced Friday they’ve selected 57 individuals, including longtime activist Rick Thompson, to participate in work groups that will provide input for the rules that will govern the state’s new recreational marijuana industry.

The work groups, which will examine four regulatory topics, are composed of:
  • 14 existing medical marijuana licensees interested in entering the adult-use market.
  • 15 municipalities that are considering allowing licensed recreational facilities.
  • 13 attorneys who represent marijuana establishments that have an interest in the rec cannabis market.
  • 15 individuals or businesses interested in participating as potential licensees or consumers.

Regulators said they received strong interest and there will be opportunities to participate in additional work groups.
