The Michigan Cannabis Education Network serves as more than just a place to learn about cannabis. It’s an educational resource for physicians, staff, and community agencies. Standing tall to usher in responsible cannabis reform laws and guide the growing community in the right direction is where you’ll find us. Business, industry, community, and government are all sectors merging together in the green sector of cannabis. Smoothly integrating these groups together is necessary in laying strong foundations for the future of the multi-billion-dollar cannabis industry. And... it all starts with the proper education!
