Our client, a medical marijuana patient registered with the State of Michigan, was out for a boat ride and some fishing on his friend’s boat. What started out as a glorious day with intentions of sun and fishing on the Detroit river later turned into federal charges of possession of marijuana (21 USC 844, 21 USC 844a) when a Border Patrol agent pulled up to them and wanted to search their vessel.

We have come a long way from 2013, when a parent submitted the first petition to add Autism as a qualifying condition within the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. It was ultimately rejected due to a lack of any research materials and testimony.

Senator Calls Out Big Pharma For Opposing Legal Marijuana
A prominent Democratic U.S. senator is slamming pharmaceutical companies for opposing marijuana legalization.
"To them it's competition for chronic pain, and that's outrageous because we don't have the crisis in people who take marijuana for chronic pain having overdose issues," Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York said. "It's not the same thing. It's not as highly addictive as o

Michael Komorn has worked tirelessly for his clients at Komorn Law PLLC to return property seized and forfeited to the police. The items and property seized often has absolutely no medical marijuana (or any crime at all) connection whatsoever. Just looking at the list of things seized, none of it makes sense. 4 wheeler?

White Widow from Amsterdam is a really nice Indica strain to grow. The medical benefits from these plants are good too, including pain relief. I have grown this strain several times over the years and it was also highly productive using my methods of cannabis cultivation. I do pinch the plants now and then, it makes them stronger and more vigorous also the potency increases. My favorite thing to do is the last two weeks of flowering you leave the lights off. After that, you should have an a
4-G aka Goddess Grown Green Gold, is a strain I found in some bag seed. I have probably grown about 100 female strains from bag seed, only when it was of high quality, imported, outdoor grown pollinated buds.
In the beginning of growing from bag seed, the results were great. By far, the best strains I have ever seen came from bag seed. Unfortunately, I did not keep any cuttings from the best strains that I had seen. The newer bag seed at that time, is when I started seeing deformitie
Dr. Atomic Blueberry Jam is the second designer seed strain that I have grown.
I grew out 4 different phenotypes and all came out female. They all looked the same until flower stage. Very short and stocky, very puffy large buds. After drying, a 1/2 ounce looks like an ounce, the patients really like that. Each of the phenotypes were all very different from each other when it comes to taste and appearance of the finished buds.
I seem to have gotten lucky with this one. One
Excerpt from Ron Paul's Farewell Speech.
Excessive government has created such a mess it prompts many questions:
Why are sick people who use medical marijuana put in prison?
Why does the federal government restrict the drinking of raw milk?
Why can’t Americans manufacturer rope and other products from hemp?
Why are Americans not allowed to use gold and silver as legal tender as mandated by the Constitution?
Why is Germany concern
TGA Querkle was one of the very first "designer seeds" I ever grew. I had been growing marijuana for a long time before, but only grew from bag seed. After the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program began, I then became a caregiver for a friend. It was then that I became brave enough to order and try those cool looking designer strains. Before the law went into effect here in Michigan I was far to paranoid to order seeds or even step foot into a hydro shop.
I only germinated two seeds to
Soon after I became a registered Michigan Medical Marijuana Caregiver, I was invited to a caregiver event held at the Green Trees building in Detroit. Upon arriving at the event every person that was invited became entered into a raffle for different items. The items for raffle were clones from different strains of plants, t-shirts, nutrients, and other miscellaneous items. When I got my ticket stub, I had thought to myself, if my ticket is drawn, I will turn down the prize. Well, my ticket was

I am a medical marijuana patient. A cannabis consumer and a cancer patient.
Most of our potential employees are still willing to put me in jail. If I vote for them, I am agreeing with them.
That simple "line in the sand" helps me to sort them out.
Again .. why hire someone to hurt you? It's like you are taking out a contract on yourself.
Vote for someone that isn't willing to put you in jail for a herb. Don't agree with someone willing to send armed thugs into your home.
Witnesses: Detroit police fatally shoot three harmless dogs during pot bust
October 17, 2012 by Steve Neavling
There was nothing James Woods could do.
He screamed; he pleaded. ”Please don’t harm my dogs,” he begged police, who moments earlier had barged into his east-side home looking for marijuana.
Woods was forced into a corner last week when the first shot rang out – a 12-gauge shotgun. Woods’ young pit bull, Tank, who neighbors and witnesses say was confined to a locked fence
Rapists on Patrol
Posted by Nathan Goodman on Oct 12, 2012
The prevailing myth about police is that they work “to serve and protect” the people from crime. Sometimes they may do that, but all too often the police are the ones committing crimes. I’m not just talking about petty crimes; I’m talking about rape and sexual assault.
Take the case of Milwaukee police officer Michael Vagnini. On October 9th, Vagnini was charged with non-consensually inserting his finger into victims’

Medical cannabis in Michigan will take a brutal blow during the first week of October with the sentencing of 5 patients and providers in federal court. Coming out to show solidarity really means a lot to the defendants, and it also has been shown to influence Judges. All 5 defendants are being federally sentenced for cultivation and conspiracy to manufacture marijuana. Please come out to show your support for these heroes of our movement ...
