Michigan Sustainable Business Forum will host an online roundtable discussing how the state’s cannabis industry has struggled to translate its legal status and economic opportunity into prosperity, equity, and sustainability.

Michigan’s marijuana market is expected to grow exponentially and become a major economic force, but the state’s industry has significant barriers to growth and equal opportunity. Speakers will center and speak to equity, corporate responsibility, and how state and local policies are impacting the industry. Topics will include economic empowerment in areas of disproportionate impact, compliance, best practices, policy wins, and social equity.

Panelists include:

Margeaux Bruner, Lobbyist & Consultant, Perpetual Harvest Sustainable Solutions, Leader for National Expungement Week (NEW), former Political Director for the Michigan Cannabis Industry Association
Tami VandenBerg, Co-Owner of The Meanwhile and Pyramid Scheme, Organizer & Funder, DecriminalizeGR, Board Member, West Michigan Cannabis Guild, former Executive Director of Wellhouse and former Board Member of MILegalize
