Numinen Elected to Marijuana Law Council
Posted Under General

LANSING, MI — Karl Numinen was selected by his peers to serve a two-year term as a member of the Council of the State Bar of Michigan Marijuana Law Section.  The nine-member Council, the first of its kind in the country, was formed in January, 2016 by the State Bar of Michigan to serve as the governing body of attorneys who have an interest and expertise in Marijuana law.

As Marijuana law emerges as one of the fastest growing areas of law in the country, Karl’s involvement in leadership positions at the state level and his determination to stay on top of the latest developments in the law demonstrate his commitment to provide his clients the best possible legal advice and representation.  His election to the Marijuana Law Section Council is another example of Karl’s active involvement in the key professional associations that deal with the issues most important to his clients.  The members of the Marijuana Law Section Council will address the many complex and novel legal issues involving the marijuana law facing attorneys and citizens in Michigan.  Michigan voters passed a state referendum approving the medical use of marijuana several years ago.  The Michigan Legislature continues to draft new laws regulating the manufacture, use, and distribution of medical marijuana and the voters of our state will likely be faced with another ballot initiative in the next general election concerning the legalization of recreational use of marijuana.  If any of the proposed initiatives pass, new laws will be necessary concerning the commercial manufacture of marijuana and the creation and regulation of marijuana dispensaries.
