I'm new to the MMJ community, just completed Med Grow a few weeks back, have had my card for a couple of months.
My take on the recent raids in Oakland and Lapeer is that there is obviously great confusion on how MMJ is going to be made available to Patients.
The only way this is going to work is if we create a "Walled Garden", much like Apple has done with their iProducts.
We need to ensure that only MMJ that is produced inside of the great state of Michigan, in facilities that are compliant with the plant count are being sourced.
We need to really focus on transparency in the MMJ supply chain.
It will be challenging to provide only compliant MMJ to Patients, but to ensure a good public image we have to set the greed aside and focus on providing 100% Michigan grown medicine for all patients.
I look forward to learning more on what it means to be within the bounds of the law, and how we can protect ourselves and our patients from the external black market forces that will surly be the death of MMJ if left to run wild.
Whether you're a Caregiver or a Patient obtaining medicine say, "Make mine Michigan!"
