The Dual Use of Cannabis Task Force will be accepting oral and written testimony specific to the stated agenda items. We want to hear from you and encourage you to submit testimony. IF you are able to submit written testimony over submitting oral testimony, we would appreciate it to allow those that can’t, enough time to share their thoughts, while leaving the task force members with enough time to accomplish the goals stated in SLH, 2021, Act 169. However, if you have that burning desire to submit oral testimony over written or both, please do not let this discourage you from doing so.
Written testimony should be submitted 24 hours in advance. Any testimony received less than 24 hours before the meeting may not be distributed to the task force members for consideration.
How to submit written testimony:
Please reference the agenda item numbers you are submitting written testimony for.
