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
LANSING, MI - It was chilly on the morning of Dec. 15., but Michigan State Police stood outside a state office building. They were there for safety, ready, as the Bureau of Medical Marihuana Regulation opened its doors, for some applicants to show up with the $6,000 application fee in cash.
Michigan lawmakers authorized a new medical marijuana industry in 2016, and the state began accepting applications to be a part of it on Dec. 15, 2017. But businesses seeking inclusion
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.
In 2014, a Parent tried to submit a new Autism petition with some testimony about physicians treating Autism patients who qualify due to also having epile
Komorn Law PLLC is proud to report another complete dismissal of all charges for our client. These past few months we have attained a high rate of dismissals of our client’s cases.
In this case our client was charged with allegations of felonious marihuana conduct; the case involved the definition of a medical marijuana plant in the law. More specifically, whether or not the plant was producing food from photosynthesis and was “living”. Of course, the prosecutor wanted to fight abo
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.

This is not an Onion Article. Recently, DEA Chief Michele Leonhart said, ”There was just an article last week, and it was on pets. It was about the unanticipated or unexpected consequences of this, and how veterinarians now are seeing dogs come in, their pets come in, and being treated because they’ve been exposed to marijuana.”
She was referencing an article that ran in USA Today which featured veterinarians in Colorado talking about family pets, mostly dogs, coming in who had eaten marijua
Five years ago the State of Michigan begin accepting application under the MMMA. The program actually went into effect on the 4th, but it was a Saturday, so nothing could be done.
Lots has happened during these five years. there have been compliance, bending, side-stepping, disobeying, changes, changes, re-writing, back-stabbing, under-table dealings, and a bunch of frustrations.
The thing that has frustrated me more than anything has been the attitudes concerning attentive forms of use.
All week I received calls al texts asking about the Hash Bash. It was like people felt that they couldn't go unless I served as their escort. I had 5 doctors appointment this week. I was tired, sore, hurting; I had not planned on going. By Saturday morning, all but one of those people had called to say that they weren't going. That last person was my son. He must have texted me 4 times Saturday, he really wanted to go.
I didn't make it to the Hash Bash, but to the Monroe Street Fair, and I w

Remember the Sheriff from Arizona who stole a California patient’s medical marijuana? He just got told by the highest court in the land to give it back.

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Arizona court rulings which ordered Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmott to return the medical marijuana he seized from Valerie Okun, a California medical marijuana patient visiting Arizona. The Sheriff ignored the fact that Arizo
At least eight cities and possibly a dozen more are presenting local initiatives aimed at legalizing or decriminalizing possession, use or transfer of small amounts of marijuana on private property by persons 21 or older.
Similar proposals have been on the local ballot in eight other cities thus far with everyone of them passing.

I was discussing the edible use on marihuana with a group of acquaintances. Some of these people were smokers, some employed multiply uses, others how did not use- but were interested. The main thing that were all agreed on was that the MMMA was written with smokers in mind. We decided this because of the 2.5 ounce restriction on useable marihuana. Another thing we agreed on was that we had no issue with using the 2.5 ounces to produce something that we felt was friendlier to our particular ailm
A chilling new paper has been released by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) which calls for increased use of random drug testing for Americans of all ages. The paper states that random drug testing is currently “underutilized” and ought to be expanded to include people of all ages in virtually all aspects of daily life. The paper was penned by former United States National Institute on Drug Abuse Director (and present-day drug testing consultant and profiteer) Robert Dupont (alon

Recently there's been a lot of talk, and even more confusion, about the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of pediatric epilepsy. The science behind the possible physiological mechanisms involved seem to have been all but entirely left out of this discussion. Though this paper is not meant to be definitive, this is an attempt by a layman to inject some science into this ongoing discussion. More importantly this is di
Before we get into it, I must remark on a recent documentary I watched, “The House I Live In.” The film explores how our country’s drug laws have come to be, and the negative social impact that the current drug policy has had on everything from the individual, family, police work, prison system, and economy. When people become jobless, hopeless, and desperate, they have historically turned to the black market economy of illegal activity. This is true of every immigrant group that has come to
I came across a great piece by Lordina Youngcourt, an Indiana based Defense Attorney. She highlights the problems within the Criminal Justice, system and brings to light how the cards are stacked against defendants.
“Defendants don’t understand why this system that’s supposed to applaud honesty is telling him “if you want the deal, you have to lie.” So the whole plea system is very difficult [and] very ethically troublesome.”
I encourage you to read the entire piece found here. The challeng
Deputy Attorney General James Cole spoke at the annual New York State Bar Association meeting and focused on a glaring problem in the Criminal Justice System: the huge prison population.
Mr. Cole said that the Justice Department recognized that the overwhelming prison population was a threat to public safety, not because it was taking dangerous criminals off the streets, but because it was taking too many non-violent individuals away from their families and throwing them into prison.
US Attorney General Eric Holder said yesterday that the Obama Administration will announce regulations that allow banks to do business with legal sellers of marijuana.
Holder made an appearance at the University of Virginia on Thursday, 1/23/14, and highlighted the concern of what to do with all the cash generated at dispensaries. ”You don’t want just huge amounts of cash in these places. They want to be able to use the banking system…There’s a public safety component to this. Huge amounts of

In 1973, the 36 Cal. App Court ruled in People v. Vargas, that marijuana soaked in alcohol is not a narcotic.

Both Agent Velasquez and the court interpreter, Mrs. Ostendorf, testified that a mixture of alcohol and marijuana is commonly used by persons of Mexican descent in
The Planet Green Trees Radio team was delighted to have Michigan Senator and Senate Democratic Leader Gretchen Whitmer on the show this past Thursday.

So every day I read more and more about dispensaries, and government this and that.. LEOs hate this law due to lack of funding stemming from Marijuana arrests..
I was theorizing this morning with a buddy of mine..
I can see it now, the Government run dispensaries will cancel out our rights to grow our own, which in turn will put a halt to the "legal home grow" That will satisfy LEO cause they will now be able to raid each suspected home that has a grow and seize all the equipment and sti
Your in pain, you go to your doctor and ask for a prescription refill, they catch word that you have a medical marijuana card and refuse to see you again as their patient....why? Because the large corporations and hospitals are federally funded and it is illegal at the federal level to have marijuana or prescribe it.
I found that Denali Healthcare is now picking up a lot of these patients and is able to help them with their narcotics and medical marijuana use.

After reading the Senate bill 660, I have to ask: "Isn't this what was asked for?" When the cry went out to tax and regulate marijuana, is this not what was wanted?
Keep in mind that we live in a country that is for the people, by the people. A country where businesses and corporations are people. A country where lawmakers perform in ways directed by the people who control their incomes. I doubt that there are no many who will not suggest that our lawmakers are indeed receiving funding from

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.

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.
