NPR 1A Marijuana Panel

Cannabis Legal Group founder and principal attorney, Barton W. Morris, Jr. will serve as a panelist for NPR 1A and Michigan Radio’s panel, “Weed’s Legal … Now What?”

1A host Joshua Johnson will explore what happens now that voters legalized adult-use marijuana across Michigan. Additionally, the law requires a plan that addresses the damage done to communities impacted when marijuana was illegal.

Who else is on the panel?

Alongside Barton Morris, panelists include:

  • Rev. Horace Sheffield of the Detroit Association of Black Organizations
  • Andrew Brisbo, executive director of Michigan’s Marijuana Regulatory Agency
  • Anqunette Sarfoh, founder of BotaniQ marijuana provisioning center and dispensary

What questions will be addressed in the NPR 1A Marijuana Panel?

While the panel encourages audience members to bring their questions and personal stories to share, some questions that will be answered in the panel include:

  1. How will legalization impact you?
  2. As stated above, LARA is required to formulate a plan that addresses those who have been disproportionately impacted by prohibition and enforcement. What will that look like?
