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.

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.

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
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
Warrantless wiretapping is a terrible idea and is unconstitutional. It was created at a time when America was thought to be at WAR with the terrorists. 17 years later, America was always at war with the terrorists. Illegal wiretaps of all communications continue, but are solely focused on Americans, and more specifically focused on the war on drugs, not terrorism.
Not to be outdone, the NSA and DEA know that their secret illegal wiretaps are illegal and would not be used as evidence in the
It is now coming to the end of March. I will finally have a trial and can use Medical marijuana as a defense. Dan and I will still have to prove the three aspects of the law as we did before, but this time, in front of a jury. This has been a long and treacherous ride, not only for me but for my family as well. I have been completely blessed still being able to work my school job and recently started a property management company. All has been well as I fit the niche that has been provided for m

Recent national articles have embarrassed the state of Michigan. It does not take much reading or news watching to discover that Michigan's national spotlight is not anything to brag about. The Governor is facing controversy over his leadership in the Flint water crisis. Some are calling the situation a human rights violation, and enough voices have been heard to draw a federal investigation (1). Also according to the Center for Public Integrity and Global Integrity, Michigan ranks last in laws
Komorn Law, Jeff Frazier, Rockind Law and Nichols Law- File Federal DOJ Complaint, Demand that the Crime Lab be removed from the Michigan State Police
A group of criminal defense attorneys says the Michigan State Police (MSP) should no longer oversee the state crime lab. “We in Michigan accept the idea we’ve got a Michigan State Police crime lab. That is inherently problematic. But we accept it, because that’s how it is,” said attorney Michael Komorn, who specializes in defending medical mar
THE MICHIGAN STATE POLICE Forensic Science Division finds itself embroiled in scandal as newly released emails paint a picture of a crime lab in turmoil over how to classify marijuana. Attorneys and medical marijuana advocates accuse Michigan prosecutors of pressuring the state’s crime lab to falsely classify the origins of THC found in hash oils and marijuana edibles as “origin unknown.”
Prosecutors exploited the ambiguity to charge medical marijuana users for possession of synthetic THC, d

The past few days I have been reading as much as I can about MMJ, Michigan Marijuana Law states I am allowed 5 patients and 12 plants. After reading some of your conversations here I think I can have 12 plants per patient that would be 60 going at a time

While marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, its medicinal uses can be traced back to years. And as this drug's reputation shifts from that of an illicit drug to that of a therapeutic one, pharmacists need to gear up to provide the best possible advice to their patients.
If you are worried about counseling your patients on the use of this medicinal drug, read on for some tips.

A recent radio show on NPR featured an interview with Michael Komorn a leading medical marijuana attorney in Southfield and the president of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association
In 2008, Michigan voters said yes to medical marijuana. There are reports that since 2011 it seems as if fewer patients have been signing up for medical marijuana cards. A 2013 Michigan Supreme Court ruling, patients remain protected as consumers even though sellers no longer have a clear-cut legal protection t
I have been growing on my own for the last 3 1/2 years. As we all know we have alot of ups and downs. I just recently found that my gurls in the veg stage have been having some strange issues. They olny have 1,2 or 3 leaves? I have been trying to figure it out on my own and doing some reasearch. My ph is 6.3 well water, I grow in Promix bx. I use a one part grow mix every other watering. But the strange this is. I was doing good. no weird leaves. They was all nice and green. My temps
I heard the news earlier today about section 8 defense and with no surprise,the end result being denied section 8 defense. We will appeal this decision, thanks to Dan he will bear the burden of the costs involved. He has been doing this throughout the trail, taking on the weight of the costs and ensuring my ability for the best possible outcome. Every appeal=more money, if I had to pay out of hand I would have failed miserably. My family is completely broke in the monetary department and have no
Dan (lawyer) spent a few minutes before the hearing talking about what might proceed. As I was in his office and it was almost time to leave, I started thinking about a story. Daniel and the lions den crossed my mind. If you know the story, Daniel continued to pray in front of his window of the city he lived in. Even though it was declared that you should not praise any other god except the present king,he did it anyways. He felt it was the right thing to do and he was not ashamed. The penalty,

Long term supply available on a monthly basis, important that you use crop rotation, and be smart enough to use CO2 supplement for faster growth , crop rotations. Prefer indica strains and highly indica strains only, no sativias or low potency product. Small untrimmed budlets and ripoffs need not respond.

Well, since I stumbled upon my naturally decarbed concentrated cannabis oil, I wanted to try some buds that should be naturally decarbed. I had some that had been stored for about 4 months or a bit longer. I had been meaning to do it, but got a bit lazy about it since I enjoy the oil so much. With the naturally decarbed oil it makes it even more difficult. I discuss the naturally decarbed oil in my concentrates blog http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.org/blog/532/entry-1098-rso-qwiso-qwet-and-natur

Man won't face jail for technical violation of medical marijuana law
Unfortunately all too often we are seeing these types of cases reported in the media regarding the MMMA. I take issue with these conclusions.
The law allows each patient 2.5 ounces of usable marijuana and to cultivate up to 12 marijuana plants kept in an enclosed, locked facility. Any registered caregiver can have up to that amount for each patient registered to them (with a maximum of six), including the grower, if eac
Earlier this week I attended a fund raiser for Michigan Attorney General Candidate Mark Totten. When he addressed the supporters at this function, it was more than refreshing to hear the honesty and integrity with which he spoke. Of course the supporters present were those from our Michigan medical marihuana community, and they were all there to hear and see what our great state would be like with Mark Totten as our Law Enforcement Leader.

Marvin Guy is facing capital murder in Killeen, Texas for shooting and killing a SWAT officer that was executing a no-knock, pre-dawn drug raid and Mr. Guy’s home where he was in bed with his wife. No drugs were found and the raid was apparently based on a bogus tip.

With a no-knock, pre-dawn raid there is n
If I select someone to be my caregiver the form says " person allowed to possess patients plants - choose patient OR caregiver. Can I still be a caregiver for others and grow for them? I can't find anything in the law that says I can. I want to be sure I am completely legal.
I always questioned Dans ability in the courtroom just because I had never witnessed him in action. My fears are gone after today. He was so comfortable in his position. He even objected in the manner of the bailiff and others talking to loud distracting his ability to hear the officer as the witness. He presented himself in a very professional and positive manner. His question ability to the officer was beyond my expectations. The way he was "guided" in his abilities and manner really set the t
Steve Oates, a medical marijuana patient residing in Goodyear, Arizona, was raided by members of the local police department, DEA, and SWAT Team in March of 2013. Like many medical marijuana patients, he didn’t feel comfortable asking strangers or surfing Craigslist to find out where he could obtain his cannabis, so applied to grow his own. He was approved by the state in what
Yes I agree its wise to just not medicate in your vehicle. If they smell burnt product your getting a DWI. Here in Grand Rapids we still don't have legal access for meds. Just proves once this state gets their hands on things its been total chaos & corruption & a huge shortage on tested meds.
Right off the bat you fudged up by calling it RICK SIMPSON. It's CANNABIS OIL.
Get several opinions before you get the radiation treatment.
It's good you quit smoking cigarettes, they are probably why you got tongue cancer.
What you need the most is a sense of well being.
Knowing that you quit the cancer causing cigarettes should empower you going forward.
Use cannabis to help your total wellness. If it makes you feel good then it's right for you. If not then run from
Well not sure if it's ok if I post here because I'm from Florida, But any how I'm 60 yrs old and back on December 17 2017 I found out I had cancer on my tongue Verrucous squamous cell carcinoma is the type of cancer a very slow growing so i had a pet scan to see if it had spread and found out that it did not and that is was very condensed to that spot on the front of my tongue so my ear nose and throat specialists cut out about 2"x 1 1/2" of my tongue out and there was a pathologist right there
He's been standing on the shoulders of all the folks who have come before him that actually did something. He, Rick Simpson, just made a sloppy mess of an extraction and pretended he invented something. Then to most of the real folks dismay, he put his name on it and it stuck. Ego maniac in the medical marijuana closet, I'll give him that.
