There are two cases involving medical marijuana being sent to the Supreme Court in Michigan. One makes sense and the other not so much. You be the judge.
The first case that took place in Oakland County with a man who was stopped with marijuana, but didn’t meet with his doctor yet. The People vs. Alexander Kolanek was filed in July 2009. It involves whether someone using marijuana must have consulted a doctor after the law was passed, not before. In the second case in Shiawassee County, a man who had his medical card and was charged for growing marijuana outside in a dog house in the People v. Larry King. The Supreme Court has accepted to see both cases. The Shiawassee County one seems ridiculous if he wasn’t growing more than the required twelve plants you are allowed to grow. But the man in Oakland County seems to be screwed. If you don’t have your card, what do you expect? The cops are going to hit you with a charge.
In Michigan, marijuana can be used to alleviate the symptoms of certain illnesses if someone sees a doctor and gets a state-issued card. People can possess up to 2 1/2 ounces of ready-to-use marijuana and have up to 12 plants kept in a locked area. A registered caregiver also can grow the drug for them. But not all judges follow this state law.
