do allot of reading and I do not remember a locality barring medical use anywhere else before in a medical cannabis State . Even Livonia's troubling actions previously banning caregiver activities did not go there . That doesn't mean it hasn't occurred but it is rare if so
. It just goes to show how discriminatory and dangerous attitudes are for patients . Already many are afraid to go to emergency rooms even at State Run Institutions like the U of M . 3 years after the act has passed
As more and more people become familar with the terrible plight of cannabis patients in the USA and world the Golden rule becomes more and more important to win further support among non patients .
Please remember in everything one communicates it must be polite , concise and free from anger . I am sure our most successful citizens can verify in business or politics one misplaced sentence felt as a insult by the other side in negotiations can alienate persons which take weeks even months t
The Government's involvement in medicine in general has created more health risks as often as not . The importance of access so that educated health consumers can acquire " pure " medications is of the utmost importance now for many Americans and more are realizing it everyday .
Having been a severe chronic pain patient for over 16 years who was fortunate to be able to draw off the knowledge of one other family member whom had also been in a similar situation for over 50 years I can tell yo
I was dismayed to hear there was a gathering of Catholic Church Leaders at Cobo Hall this weekend asking for reform within their Church yet nobody addressed garnering the Support of all Catholics for Medical Marihuana Patients equal access to all basic needs and services in our State . Under the philosophy of Saint Thomas Aquinas as supported by the principles of double effect medicinal cannabis use is permissible under Church Doctrine yet we find most parishioners and leadership are confused o
The last and current Attorney General's let Michigan down when they didn't interpret clear uniform policy for communities to follow that complied with the MMM Act's intentions assimilating patients into society in a manner that kept them as productive and included as possible . They should not let personal views interfere . They should of helped create workable law on med ables , stopped this discontinuance of adjunctive medications , medical care or routine just for program participation , r
It just keeps coming up in Conversation . People are asking how can we deride the fragmentation that is occurring within the medicinal cannabis movement . Compassion Vrs Profit . It is a good topic to repeat over and over in our minds and deeds .
I hate to say it but after looking at the entire situation I agree with Bill Schuette on one concept . The battle line is over the legalization of Cannabis for everyone but the treatment of medicinal and recreational users must be delineated and re
SAN FRANCISCO -- An employer can refuse to hire someone who has ever tested positive for marijuana or other drugs, even if the applicant is now clean and sober, a federal appeals court ruled Wednesday.

This is so upsetting on so many levels . Especially when you consider all the false positives that occur even with the 50 nanogram limit used in most employment screen's . Those who are around passive vapor can easily not pass a 5 nanogram
This week a Michigan Senate passed re write amending past legislation (SB99) failed to fully take into consideration the practical needs of Medical Cannabis patients in Michigan within the passed Senate version .Senator Bert Johnson (D) was a lone undecided vote otherwise our Senate voted 37-0 .
Since their re - writing this bill you would think now is the time to make it correct for the current medicinal cannabis patient situation that did not exist when the original was written . . Qu
It is hard to have a opinion different then so many here but because I love my fellow patients as myself I feel these words must be shared . So many of us are so vulnerable and weak we are willing to give up rights out of fear hoping to avoid confrontation or change . It will occur where ever lines are drawn - we must accept it and politely fight for what is moral and correct .
Rick Jones recently released a draft of Michigan Senate Bill 17 to disallow patient's right to assemble and use t
As a part of my community I just would like to hear all the details in some of these cases against those in my State - but that is not part of the process . There is no impetus for a court hearing or openness of facts under this law .
It costs $15000 to defend against a forfeiture that doesnt require charges or a court hearing , and any defense against it is all on the person whose belongings were taken . They are assumed guilty . Law Enforcement just needs a few forms and search warrant f
People have discussed this issue with person's who hold a college degree with honors . That have taken the math required to graduate from any business school , macro and micro economics ; yet they cannot see where this helps patients in the short term . Where will patients sacrifice from their limited incomes to buy Cannabis soda at $15 a can ? Maybe I am wrong but often I feel so much effort has truly bypassed medicinal interests and gone on to fit market segment's that would only exist in
Cannabis patients listened to Rick Snyder's State of the State address last night . The Governor a businessman had a self professed desire to reduce the inefficiencies in Michigan Government policy . Yet, there was no reference to how the State spends more on it's prison system then it does on it's school's and the wasted lives of many Citizens being introduced into it for victimless crimes at a huge operating cost to our State and them over their entire lives . Actions that have the effect of p
So many of us seem to blindly believe "Federal law always trumps State laws"
It seems to repeatedly come up in medicinal cannabis debates where many feel they must surrender to the trappings of slavery by the Federal Government over their own desires to mold State laws with their freedoms of self determination that support the concept of personal responsibility . Our State Law says these records are private and not to be compromised to protect Citizens working under our legal medicinal cannab
Out of words and energy tonight I will leave you with nothing but the facts :
Michigan allows any City, Village, or Township where there are no retail liquor licenses to prohibit the retail sale of alcoholic liquor within it's borders by passage of an ordinance .M.C.L. Section 436.2109
Hence, it is logical Cannabis would be banned , inkind , similar to the tax stamp strategy of old if Michigan went down this path . The problem for prohibitionists is our act was written very cleverly .
Very sad state of events . Case appeared to have many opertunities for appeals even the Junior Prosecuter was seen pointing out the wrong defendant according to witnesses . Why when drugs are involved do they not have to prove intent or introduce patients needs . If this didnt work why would people risk all they do to create change to a true sensible policy like were supposed to have now . We should be working on things like getting a working affordable vaporizer into patients hands that meets h
