The state’s new Task Force on Medical Cannabis Therapeutic Research, whose public members were announced by Governor Dayton on July 10, will have its first meeting on Thursday, July 31, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The meeting will be in Room B144/145 of the Orville Freeman Building, at 625 Robert Street North, St. Paul. This initial meeting will focus on familiarizing the task force members with each other as well as their duties as outlined in the legislation.

In addition, the MDH Office of Medical Cannabis will host a meeting on Friday, August 8, for parties interested in learning more about the roles and responsibilities of the state’s certified medical cannabis manufacturers. This meeting will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Skjegstad Room in the Minnesota Department of Revenue Building, located at 600 Robert Street North, St. Paul. This meeting will provide prospective manufacturers and support organizations with more information about the expectations for manufacturers. The topics addressed in the meeting will include a review of the legislation, a discussion of potential supporting rules, some early information about the manufacturer selection process the state will establish, as well as an overall program timeline.

Both meetings are open to the public. For planning purposes, MDH asks that those interested in attending the August 8 meeting RSVP by Friday, August 1, to jeffrey.j.smith@state.mn.us.
