    Don’t Beauregard that joint my friend.

    By Michael Komorn

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions January 4th memo regarding marijuana enforcement is historic... and it should promptly be consigned to the dustbin of history. Mr. Session’s very name is a history lesson. Like his father and grandfather, he was named after Jefferson Davis, the first and only president of the Confederacy and P.G.T. Beauregard, the first prominent general of the Confederate Army. These were the men who lead the people of Alabama in their desire and purpose to join the “slave-holding

    Michael Komorn Fights Against Asset Forfeiture in Michigan

    By Michael Komorn

    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? Gas generator? 401k retirement account? Cars purchased 20 years ago and restored. Ladders, children's birthday money taken out of their Hallmark birthday cards. iphones, ipads, c

    Senator Gillibrand slams Big Pharma on opioids and marijuana issues.

    By Michael Komorn

    Senator Calls Out Big Pharma For Opposing Legal Marijuana Tom Angell 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

    Medical Marijuana Victory in Clarkston!

    By Michael Komorn

    Komorn Law, PLLC and Attorney Allen Peisner are proud to report the well-deserved dismissal of all marihuana charges for a young man and his family. We are proud about this one for many reasons. It is well understood that this jurisdiction (Clarkston - in the heart of Oakland County) is not known to be friendly to medical marijuana patients. In fact, in this venue at the arraignment, this particular Judge as a matter of practice tells the presumptively innocent patient that they must decide if t

    Michigan Medical Marijuana Expert Defense Attorney Michael Komorn gets grilled by House Committee while supporting asset forfeiture reform.

    By Michael Komorn

    Michael Komorn is dedicated to defending his clients from both criminal charges and civil asset forfeiture. During a committee meeting on House Bill 4158, a bill to reform asset forfeiture, House Committee member Triston Cole tried to find any possible way to attack Komorn's client testimony. With Michael's 9 years of dedicated experience to medical marijuana , he was ready to get deep into analyzing each question. Finally turning the questions around on Mr. Cole and defending his clients, once

Why was medical marijuana banned?

As this news hit in the last throes of 2017, it seems appropriate to take a step back and understand why exactly marijuana was banned all of those years ago. Please continue reading to find the answers on this long and weird journey through time.

What is Policing For Profit? And How Does It Impact Public Safety?

WHAT IS POLICING FOR PROFIT? HOW DOES IT IMPACT PUBLIC SAFETY? Michigan Moms United compiles crime arrest statistics to show, in no uncertain terms, how the practice of policing for profit decreases public safety.  Rather than investigate and arrest suspects who commit violent crimes such as rape, murder, assault, and robbery, Michigan police and prosecutors focus efforts on consensual, victimless crimes. Why? Because doing so brings much-needed funding to cash-strapped l

10 Frequently Asked Questions About Cbd

If you have ever been curious about medical marijuana and done any research, then you know that one of the major compounds in the cannabis plant that is medically useful is the phytocannabinoid cannabidiol. While THC does have its medical uses, THC is psychoactive and produces the “high” that some people are familiar with when it comes to marijuana. Cannabidiol is not psychoactive, but does provide relief for millions of people around the world. Here are ten frequently asked questions about cann

Making A Federal Case Out Of Marijuana

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.   Related: Michigan law regarding marijuana manufacture, delivery, and possession   The federal

Doubling Down On Protection From Conviction

Regarding the Supreme Court decision in People v Hartwick and People v Tuttle, I offer the following agreement that might be used between any patient and any caregiver. Both can benefit from it under any circumstance. It costs nothing but time, ink, and paper, and offers added protection in the event you are arrested and tried for marijuana use if and when you need it. You can find the ruling in Tut/Wick here: http://courts.mi.gov...71 Opinion.pdf. Footnotes 77 and 78 lay out the case that this

Successful Affirmative Defense In Isabella County Exonerates Patients

Komorn Law PLLC is happy to report that the broken criminal justice system shined a light on us today. The battle in Isabella, the State v Team Fisher concluded today with a 14-page opinion that was a joy to read. The Court held that the accused had not only presented proof of the requisite elements of the section 8 defenses, but that no question of fact existed, and therefore all charges are dismissed.   To call my client and his family courageous would be an understatement.

Police Union Head Wonders Why Everybody Suddenly Wants Them To Stop Stealing People's Stuff

"It's the worst defense of civil asset forfeiture you'll read today, or possibly ever." by Scott Shackford for Reason.com on 1-4-17.   A great article outlining the viewpoint of civil asset forfeiture from the President of the Fraternal Order of Police, Chuck Canterbury. You'll be amazed once you read this and see that this person is the President of those who swear to protect and serve. When you're done reading, you'll realize that those we entrust to protect and serve defend the tactics

Court Of Appeals Ruling Regarding Medical Marijuana Use While On Probation

This opinion affirmed the trial court's probation order barring the use of medical marijuana. The trial court's order was specific to the crimes of which defendant was convicted (OWI & No Ops) and was reasonably related to deterring his future drug abuse and criminality. This opinion does not say medical marijuana on probation can always be barred but the basis for the ban must be related to the specific defendant and the conviction(s).   Read the opinion here.

Introduction

I would like to take the opportunity to say thanks and introduce Greenlads Payment Services LLC to the MMMA. My name is LeRoy Greene II and I am the owner of Greenlads. At one time, I worked within the Department of Treasury, Homeland Security, and Social Security Administration and saw a great deal of information in relation to MMJ, before it was officially legalized in Colorado.

It is important to recognize that the people who were involved and the stories that they told are real stories. These stories represent the emblematic horrors that both patients and caregivers have had to endure over the

Why Marijuana Charges Against Patients/caregivers Are Not Brought Under The Mmma

The reason that criminal charges alleging violations of the public health code (delivery of marihuana, possession with the intent to deliver marihuana, and manufacturing (growing) marihuana), are brought in these cases instead of violations of the MMMA, is that there are very few options or similar types of criminal charges available under the MMMA. The MMMA does not have any defined penalties, and as a few courts have ruled, a violation of the MMMA, is not a crime, instead it results in the pat

The Path To Amnesty For Persons Investigated, Arrested, Prosecuted, Convicted For Marihuana Charges, Related To Possessing Non-Plant Medical Marihuana

What Happened?   On Tuesday September 22, 2016 Governor Rick Snyder signed into law several new bills allowing a state wide regulated licensing scheme for the Medical Marihuana Industry (House Bill 4209 – The Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act). Unlike The Michigan Medical Marihuana Licensing Act, which created a new law, House Bill 4210 amended the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The MMMA was specifically amended by changing the title and sections 3, 4, 6, and 7 (MCL 333.26423, 333.26

Komorn Law And Mmma File Class-Action Suit Against Msp And Oakland Sheriff

In the Federal Eastern District Court yesterday, Komorn Law and the MMMA filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of all medical marijuana patients and their caregivers who depend on the medical use of cannabis oil or products infused with marijuana, such as edible preparations. The lawsuit seeks to enjoin the Michigan State Police and Oakland County Sheriff’s Forensic Laboratories from creating reports falsely stating that medical marijuana preparations are a synthetic schedule 1 drug, with no me

Verdict......

The verdict has been made as I sit at the councils table. She struggles to open the sealed envelope and starts the verbiage used to describe it. NOT GUILTY, Dan pats me on the back as I look to his side. I was poised and never overly excited,just content in the moment. The peace that was given beforehand, was enough to handle whatever the verdict would have been, but this is what I wanted. Now it's uplifted and removed, nice to say that I won't have to deal with it anymore. From Dan's expertise

Really?

All over a plant that God intended us to use. Everything in moderation,then stereotypical view points are demolished. If marijuana was legal, it would squash the cotton industry, lumber industry and positively stimulate the economy. The love of greed,with the attribution of money, has created a pit of despair, that the wordly fall into. ALWAYS LOOK UP and be guided by the spirit!

No Trial, Yet Again.

The trial was cancelled and pushed back, like many times in the past. Dan and I do not know the reason why this has occurred. The trial is adjourned for another time in which we do not know exactly. They have to be waiting on me to mess up my bond because they know this is a losing case for them. I told Dan to tell the prosecuting attorney this:"I am ready to testify and all our witnesses as well, there will be no mistakes. We will win. It's best to end this now before I go public."
