Executive Director Brian Hanna was designated by Governor Whitmer to lead Michigan’s CRA in December 2022. The CRA oversees the medical and adult-use marijuana industries, regulates hemp-derived products, and runs the state’s medical marijuana registry card program. CRA’s mission is to establish Michigan as the national model for a regulatory program that stimulates business growth while preserving safe consumer access to cannabis.

Hanna is also active in the Cannabis Regulators Association (CANNRA), a national organization of more than 40 US state and territorial regulatory agencies that provides policy makers and regulatory agencies with the resources to make informed decisions when considering how to approach the legalization and regulation of cannabis.

“We are pleased that the CRA is once again going to participate in our event,” said Jen Wynn, vice president of expositions for “This year they will not only have the executive director speaking, but will also have a booth and therefore be able to engage with more participants.”
