What to Do with a Marijuana Initiative Referendum
Laura Genovich is presenting “What to Do with a Marijuana Initiative Referendum” at the 2022 Michigan Townships Association Annual Conference at the Lansing Center on April 27, 2022.
Your township has made a local decision to prohibit or restrict adult-use/recreational marijuana businesses—but now you’ve received a petition to place a referendum on the ballot at the next election, with a proposal to allow marijuana businesses or impose fewer restrictions. What happens next? What if the ballot measure passes? And what can the township say about the ballot measure without violating the Campaign Finance Act? Explore this new legal territory and these difficult (but important!) questions.
