V.G.I.P. Update for February 2017 - by Ben Horner

    Doing these VGIP meetings is a lot of work, and I have been very fortunate to meet with some great people that have helped make these things come together. The ideas are unique. We reach
out to patients in the community and invite lawmakers and community leaders to join the discussion. We focus on marijuana law reform and MMJ patient rights issues. Whether you’ve been to one of our meeting in the past, or this would be your first time, participants will be able to gain knowledge and networking in cannabis reform and industry.

     We want to invite everyone to participate. There are three groups discussing legalization initiatives and several groups lobbying Lansing. Big money has shown that they are ready to embrace marijuana here in Michigan. How will that play out for the common caregiver that makes a modest living in Michigan growing cannabis?

     Over the last five years the VGIP has worked hard on petitions for Flint, Saginaw, Ferndale, Ypsilanti, Lansing, Oak Park, Gaylord and other city to pass local laws to decriminalize cannabis and regulate medical marijuana. Many of the local leaders that went on lead local campaigns were recruited at these VGIP meetings. We are excited about the possibility of legalizing cannabis in Michigan in 2018.

     Our meetings typically last about two hours and are packed with information on how to be a better safer cannabis activist, grower, business owner and everyday consumer. These VGIP meetings are free to attend and are strictly informational. Find out what they don’t want you to know and unlock the secrets of the Michigan Marijuana Movement!
