DETROIT, Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — HempStaff, a Florida-based recruitment and training agency for the legal marijuana industry, will be hosting Medical Marijuana Dispensary Training courses in Detroit on Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Hilton Garden Inn Detroit Metro Airport. There will be two separate training sessions, the first from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. ET and the second from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET. The course costs $249 with prior online registration, or $300 cash at the door, if seats are available.

“Michigan’s cannabis industry is on the rise, and it isn’t showing signs of slowing as communities continue to recognize and support the plants effectiveness as a medicine,” said James Yagielo, co-founder and CEO of HempStaff. “With 64 communities approving ordinances to allow medical marijuana businesses in their towns, and the new law ordering dispensaries to apply for a license from the state to keep operational by mid-2018, regulation-educated employees will be in high demand.”

In addition to Michigan’s cannabis regulations, the course topics include:

The 4-hour course culminates in a certification exam that students must score 75% or higher to get a HempStaff Dispensary Agent Certification. In addition to education, HempStaff offers recruitment assistance to students, which includes a cannabis resume review and tips on how to make connections with employers looking to fill entry-level positions at dispensaries and cultivation sites.

In addition to Michigan, future HempStaff training classes are scheduled for Maryland, Arkansas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts and Florida.

The group behind two Detroit voter-approved medical marijuana initiatives is weighing its options — including a possible appeal — after a Wayne County Circuit Court judge last Friday overturned one of the measures that sought to relax local control this year.

But Citizens for Sensible Cannabis Reform spokesman Jonathan Barlow said Monday that no official decision has been made yet.

“Currently, we are examining all options before moving forward with any course of action,” Barlow said. “However, we are disappointed in that the city refuses to have dialogue with us in order to help minorities in the industry.”

The overturned initiative, placed on the November ballot as Proposal B, specified in which zoning districts medical marijuana-related facilities could be located within Detroit. It would have allowed provisioning centers and processors in all business and industrial districts, including downtown and Midtown.

Chief Judge Robert Colombo Jr. also partially overturned the zoning portion of a separate medical marijuana initiative, Proposal A, whicht had sought to allow dispensaries to open within 500 feet of another dispensary;

LEONI TWP., MI – East Jackson Community Schools has changed its stance on selling a former elementary school building to a marijuana management company, officials said.

Due to an impasse related to language in the original purchase agreement, the district’s Board of Education in December let an offer from The Dromos Group of Waterford expire.

The group was proposing to buy the vacant Bertha Robinson Elementary School, 5400 Seymour Road, for use as a medical marijuana growing and processing facility, Superintendent Steve Doerr said.

That impasse has since been removed and the board now is expected to accept a new full-price offer of $900,000 from The Dromos Group during a special meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 20, Doerr said.

The meeting begins at 6 p.m. in East Jackson Elementary School, 4340 Walz Road, and the board is interested in hearing from any residents who have concerns, Doerr said.

The district’s initial concern in selling the building to this buyer related to possible future changes in state legislation that could make marijuana use recreational instead of just medicinal, Doerr said.

“What’s only legal today, may not be in the future,” Doerr said. “The board has to do what’s best for East Jackson students and the community.”

Those concerns have been removed by deed restrictions written into the current purchase agreement that the buyer has agreed to, Doerr said.

The language restricts use of the building only to state-licensed medical marijuana growing and processing operations, Doerr said. The restriction carries with the property in perpetuity regardless of who owns it, he said.

“This locks in this use now and forever, regardless of changes in legislation or ordinances or owners,” Doerr said. “No sale or dispensing of marijuana – medical or otherwise – will be allowed there ever.”

Rexroad Marquis Corporation has announced major initiatives for expansion of the Shango Premium Cannabis brand into the legal cannabis markets in California, New Jersey and Michigan., Rexroad Marquis CEO Brandon Rexroad said Thursday.

(PRWEB) February 19, 2018

Rexroad Marquis Corporation (RMC) holds the intellectual property and brand licensing rights to Shango Premium Cannabis, a leading cannabis cultivator, wholesaler and retailer based in Portland, Oregon, which expanded into the Las Vegas market two years ago.

“RMC is actively pursuing expansion of the Shango brand into these three emerging markets,” Rexraod said. “We will be announcing geographical location additions soon, as well as the expansion of our product base.”

RMC has licensed the Shango brand to production, processing and sales operations in Oregon, Washington and Nevada. The Nevada licensee has continued to enhance its branded cultivation facilities, wholesale and retail sales. Recreational marijuana sales in Nevada began last July 1, 2017.

“These additions show our stability in moving forward with the vision we conceptualized four years ago,” Rexroad said. “The knowledge we gained in working into the cannabis market in two states will certainly help us going forward. This will allow us to more aggressively and effectively position RMC and Shango for success as new cannabis markets begin to open,” Rexroad said. “They will also help us secure the investment capital necessary to grow Shango into a nationwide brand.”

Rexroad will spearhead RMC’s efforts to secure cannabis cultivation, processing, wholesale and retail licenses, license company-owned production facilities and stores, and sub-license retail operations to qualified, licensed organizations that have sought to align themselves with the Shango brand.
