  1. could be nute burn looks like mites still or ph problems with water. whats your ph? temperatures will affect ph.
  2. since there is a heroin epidemic , and a pill mill epidemic, they are going after doctors. next will be going after pharmacies and pharmacists. people in pain are now discriminated against every day. the only answer you get now? "you can live with some pain" , thats it. oh and plenty of this crap "try physical therapy or alternate non-medication therapies like hypnosis and acupuncture."
  3. and you cant go back to using MM because they test your pee to make sure you're taking the pain prescriptions. and you cant use other peoples pee or fake pee because they want to see you using those pain prescriptions too.
  4. funny people were all against 10 large grows in ohio when legalization was on their ballot. but now the ohio legislature put 10 large grows in their medical marijuana law. at least ohio has something now for the sick people.

  6. https://www.regulatemi.org/press/marijuana-legalization-hits-100,000-signature-milestone/ JULY 10, 2017 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday, July 10, 2017 LANSING, MI — Supporters of marijuana legalization announced today that the signature collection effort is running ahead of schedule with more than 100,000 signatures collected to-date. The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol must collect 252,523 valid signatures to place the question on Michigan’s Nov. 2018 ballot. “The support we are seeing across the state has been fantastic. We are getting calls and emails everyday from people who understand that marijuana prohibition is a massive failure and asking where they can sign and how they can help,” said coalition spokesperson Josh Hovey. “If we can keep up this momentum, we will have all signatures in four months rather than the six months required by state law.” The majority of the petition collection campaign is being coordinated by CRMLA via paid signature collectors. The group has collected 99,209 signatures from paid petition gatherers. CRMLA coalition member MILegalize added 3,216 from its initial volunteer petition turn-in for a total of 102,425 signatures collected to-date. If approved by Michigan voters in November 2018, the initiative would: Legalize personal possession, cultivation, and use of limited amounts of cannabis for adults 21 and older; Legalize the cultivation of industrial hemp; License marijuana businesses that cultivate, process, test, transport, and sell marijuana; Protect consumers with proper testing and safety regulations for retail marijuana; and Tax marijuana at retail levels with a 10 percent excise tax and 6 percent sales tax, which will support K-12 public schools, roads, and local governments. The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol is partnership between grassroots activists and key organizations, including: the Marijuana Policy Project, the ACLU of Michigan, the Drug Policy Alliance, the National Patients Rights Association, Michigan NORML, MI Legalize, the Michigan Cannabis Coalition, and lawyers from the State Bar of Michigan Marijuana Law Section. ### For more information about the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, please visit http://www.RegulateMI.org CONTACT: Josh Hovey josh@regulatemi.org C: 517-295-3496
  7. the qualifying conditions are listed both in the law http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?mcl-Initiated-Law-1-of-2008 and on the application form http://www.michigan.gov/documents/lara/lara_BHCS_MMMP_Application_Packet_0115_478291_7.pdf more info http://michigan.gov/mmp Post Traumatic Stress Disorder was also added to the qualifying conditions list, but it is not listed in the law or on the application form.
  8. the forms are on the http://michigan.gov/mmp site a patient lists you as a caregiver when they register, or by filling out a change of caregiver form. the patient makes you the caregiver, not the other way around. so no, you cant be a caregiver to no one first. its just the way it is.
  9. you can use this website to request a caregiver. post a city or area where you are looking to meet a caregiver. there are a number of caregivers on this site looking for patients. then meet with them somewhere public to discuss, or talk online via private message or email.
  10. but if you are looking for advice on the business side, of either caregiving or one of these new MMFLA licenses, ask one of the mmj lawyers. they are part of these many experts in cannabis business licensing and some are in the know with lobbyists running around doing backroom deals and trading information and secrets. call komorn law for more info on how to get in on the big michigan green rush. 800-656-3557 or http://www.komornlaw.com for more info http://komornlaw.com/business-development/ there were some guides on caregiving here at michiganmedicalmarijuana.org , but they are down while the site is being upgraded. they should be back shortly. i hope i am not being too harsh with my answers. being a caregiver for someone is a tough job. it requires dedication and patience and compassion. dealing with people who sometimes cant pay their own bills. its not a steady reliable income imo. not to mention opening yourself to multiple felonies just for dealing with the controlled substance marijuana, in both state and federal laws. the michigan state charges which get thrown around on caregivers being: maintaining a drug house. 2 year misdemeanor cultivation/manufacture of marijuana. 4-7 year felony for up to 200 plants possession with intent to distribute. 4-7 year felony just trying to give you the straight talk facts.
  11. to answer this question, you can be a caregiver under the current system. in a year or two, the state will start issuing licenses to grow for 500,1000 or 1500 plants, or secure transport, or retail medical marijuana dispensary, or medical marijuana processing. no one has any idea what the rules will be for the new licenses to do large grows , retail outlets, processors, secure transports, etc. they have not released any data yet. there are some rules in the law right now. which you can read here: http://www.legislature.mi.gov/documents/2015-2016/publicact/htm/2016-PA-0281.htm generally, the thought process is that they are going to require insurance bonds and surety guarantees , so if you dont have $250k , dont bother asking about it. heres the quote from the law Sec. 408. (1) Before the board grants or renews any license under this act, the licensee or applicant shall file with the department proof of financial responsibility for liability for bodily injury to lawful users resulting from the manufacture, distribution, transportation, or sale of adulterated marihuana or adulterated marihuana-infused product in an amount not less than $100,000.00. The proof of financial responsibility may be in the form of cash, unencumbered securities, a liability insurance policy, or a constant value bond executed by a surety company authorized to do business in this state. As used in this section:
  12. all of which require schooling, licensing, degrees, continuing education and huge investments. not very comparable to a mmmp caregiver. whose only requirement is not having a felony. and by law, is only allowed to be a caregiver for 5 connected patients at any given time. compared to a dr, nurse, hospital or drugstore, which could see 1000 patients a month? fine then. to make money off the sick, go to school and become a dr or nurse. theres my advice.
  13. you want to make money off of sick people?
  14. isnt dykema a lobbyist for one of the mj groups? dont they have to disclose that?

Lance Boldrey On Monday, June 26, 2017, Dykema attorneys were present as Michigan’s Medical Marihuana Licensing Board conducted its first public meeting in Lansing, Michigan. This meeting was the first time that members of the public had the opportunity to address the newly-appointed Board, and marijuana industry advocates and participants took full advantage, overflowing the G. Mennen Williams Building’s auditorium. At the outset of the meeting, Board Chairman and former Michigan House Speaker Rick Johnson made clear that the inaugural meeting would not be a question and answer session, but that the Board would listen to public comment as its members continue to learn about the issues that lie ahead. Members of the public to address the Board included attorneys, dispensary owners, caregivers, patients, and township trustees, who collectively voiced varying concerns about the uncertainty in the medical marihuana field that will continue to exist until the rulemaking process concludes. From the activist community, some speakers criticized the composition of the Board, questioning both the political make-up (appointees include only Republicans and Independents) and the fact that Board member Don Bailey is a retired Michigan State Police Trooper with a history of drug enforcement work. (Board member David LaMontaine is also a police officer, and a law enforcement background is hardly unheard of on a regulatory board—the Executive Director of Michigan’s Gaming Control Board was a longtime officer with the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office.) Toward the end of the meeting, Mr. Bailey explained that marijuana obviously involves law enforcement issues, causing some consternation when he offered the observation that the Board may have trouble believing potential licensees who had failed to comply with the current Michigan Medical Marihuana Act would comply with the new law going forward. He also noted that going forward, the Board’s duty is to follow and apply the law, not personal views. Other members of the Board echoed comments demonstrating that they are eager to hear and learn from the public. Chairman Johnson encouraged members in the audience to continue to make their voices heard and to work together with the Board as the process unfolds. Chairman Johnson concluded by indicating that there would be “at least” one public meeting between June and October of this year. As we have written previously, the timelines in Michigan’s rulemaking process will force the State to promulgate emergency rules to be able to comply with the law’s December 15, 2017 date for accepting licensure applications. Because emergency rules can only extend for one year, we expect the State to begin work on promulgating final rules nearly simultaneously.
