National Patients' Rights Association Analyzing Michigan House Bill 5580 And Will Make Formal Recommendations To Lansing
DETROIT, May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Patients' Rights Association (NPRA)—a Michigan-based alliance of leading medical marijuana advocates working to protect patient rights—today announced it is in the process of a thorough analysis of Michigan House Bill 5580 (creating new act for state and local regulation of marijuana dispensaries) and will provide formal recommendations and opinion in the coming weeks.
Specifically, the NPRA is studying the HB 5580 as it relates to patient access, public policy, law enforcement, municipal management, and licensing and regulatory affairs.
The NPRA is working to carefully analyze HB 5580 in order to:
- Provide a broader platform for discussing, collaborating, and acting on long-term priorities that directly impact medical marijuana patients in the State of Michigan
- Bring a wider perspective to making progressive public policy changes as it relates to medical marijuana and patient access, and
- To provide Michigan medical marijuana patients a response to proposed legislation that impacts safe access
The NPRA is backed by patients, caregivers, businesses and a range of other supporters. Collectively, the coalition is working to broaden awareness, reach legislators in a targeted manner, and help mobilize patients and caregivers who are affected by current and proposed medical marijuana laws. A key objective of the coalition is a push for definitive regulation in terms of standardization — ranging from safety and storage needs, document management requirements, privacy, and overall industry standards and procedures.
