Andrew was recently appointed by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to lead the newly-created Marijuana Regulatory Agency, the successor to the Bureau of Marijuana Regulation (BMR). BMR was created in 2017 to implement the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act and Marihuana Tracking Act and oversee Michigan’s existing medical marihuana registry card program under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act.

The agency is also responsible for implementing the regulatory program enacted under the Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act. BMR’s mission is to establish Michigan as the national model for a regulatory program that stimulates business growth while preserving safe consumer access to marijuana.

Andrew is the director of BMR and has been in licensing and regulation with the State of Michigan since 2004, including experience with the Michigan Gaming Control Board, Department of State and occupational and health professional licensing in LARA.
