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
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.

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
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

Back in 2010, when Californians were given the opportunity to vote to legalize marijuana in their state, Lobbyist John Lovell went to work for the special interest groups who make a killing off of keeping cannabis illegal. The defeat of Prop 19 and the money that subsequently flowed to a select few is yet another example of how special interests are undermining the will and well being of the majority of US citizens.

Last week, The Court of Appeals determined that edibles do not constitute "usable material" as defined by the MMMA.

Though there are currently 18 medical marijuana states, and marijuana possession has been decriminalized in Colorado and Washington, many hurdles still exist when it comes to researching the drug's medicinal benefits. In 1970, under the Nixon administration, Marijuana was classified as a schedule 1 controlled substance, right along with heroine and above cocaine. The schedule 1 label, as determined by the DEA, means that marijuana:
(A) has high potential for abuse.
(B) The drug or other sub
A new study published in the American Journal of Medicine has shown that marijuana use can lower the risk of diabetes and obesity. The study analyzed data collected from a 2005-2010 survey of over 4600 Americans. Of those surveyed, 2,103 had never ingested or inhaled cannabis, 1,975 had used marijuana in the past, and 579 were current users. The study found that current and prior cannabis users had lower fasting insulin levels as well as smaller waist circumferences. Though marijuana users were
Daniela Drake, a graduate from the prestigious Stanford medical school, shares her experiences as a California "Pot Doctor" and how she was transformed from a skeptic to an avid supporter of medical cannabis. Like many doctor's involved in medical marijuana certifications, she has witnessed first-hand the cruelties and hypocrisy of marijuana prosecution, these experiences have compelled her to speak out. Michigan readers will resonate with her poignant story and will hopefully glean important le
I just picked a jury in a marihuana case, there were several perspective jurors who were excused, who will not sit on our jury because of the answers they gave during the jury voi dire. This is not the first time this has happened.
If you believe in medical cannabis, and or that Marijuana should be legal and you find yourself on a jury in a marihuana case here are some things to remember:

Today is the first day of the fifth year of our Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. During those five years, I have found and hosted compassion clubs meeting, participated and attended expos, workshops, and international Social Forums. I have had the chance to meet hundreds of people; meeting that was possible because of the MMMA. I have discussed the medical use of marihuana with patients, patients’ families, various levels lawyers, law officials, lawmakers, doctors of different spec
Medical marihuana remains a controversial issue in Michigan, despite nearly two-thirds of voters approving the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. Since 2008, when the Act was approved, municipalities statewide have varied in their approach to medical marihuana, unsure of their powers to govern patients, growing operations, dispensaries and medicinal marihuana transfers.
While most prosecutors and law enforcement agencies have come to accept medical marihuana and its benefits, some have remained
Over-watered vs. under-watered marijuana: how can I tell if my cannabis plant is over or under-watered?
A common question for new cannabis growers is how to tell if your drooping cannabis is over or under-watered. It's common for new growers to over-water their weed, but that doesn't mean that under-watering doesn't happen too. Never fear, it's easy to tell how often you should be feeding your plant and what is the true cause of your drooping.
An over watered cannabis plant will have
The 50 Year Anniversary of a defendant's constitutional right to counsel, begs the question.. has Gideon fulfilled its goals, do the indigent defendants get less justice than those who can afford to hire a lawyer?

Last August, the state began assembling a medical marihuana review panel, with the ultimate goal of finally hearing arguments to add new conditions to the Michigan Medical Marihuana registry. Now, with the
help of that panel, more than four years after Michigan residents approved the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA), the registry is close to adding its first new condition -- Parkinson's disease.
On Friday, January 25, the state's Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs review panel
Last week, Michigan's leaders passed a number of bills in a marathon lame-duck session, scrambling to push through controversial legislation behind closed doors late into the night. The bills included several amendments to Michigan's Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA), in addition to an Emergency Financial Manager bill which was previously rejected by Michigan voters just over a month ago.
The medical marijuana bills passed include provisions that:

I am working on a project that will make a dehumidifier and a air conditioner that will be self sustaining using THC as the refrigerant. The condencer coils that hold the refrigerant would be filled with THC vaporized. As the THC cools and condenses on the inside of the coils, it will create a vaccum where the THC was all energised with heat in the vaporized state. I am looking for people that will be able to help me with this project. I can teach you everything you need to know if you have
It's all in the soil as I always say when people ask me what's my secret to growing nice plants. I make my own mix consisting of potting soil, organic humus and manure, perlite or pumice, sand, peat moss, and my secret volcanic soil from Hawaii. I mix a rich loamy mix with alot of volcanic soil added in and my plants just thrive living in a perfect soil mix. I also add humic acid and fulvic acid for extra benefits! Nothing tastes better than rich soil-grown cannabis in my opinion!!! Happy G
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

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.
