I am a caregiver for 4 patients. I am allowed to have 48 plants. What is a plant under the Michigan Law? I was told by my doctor that plants had roots.

 

I am facing felony charges for having 37 small non producing plants and some cuts that were not rooted, just cut off.

 

Help.

i believe a plant under michigan law is anything with a root, from a seed that has just sprouted to a hanging plant with the root ball still attached. i think they also count non-rooted clones also. but if you only had 37 plants, you shouldn't have any problem. but if you have 37 plants and a bunch of unrooted clones, then you might have some problems.

There was a case in Michigan from the 80's that was a lawsuit from a National Seed Corm Manufacturer I dont remember who, they were suing a grain elevator that grew it's seed. In "that case" it was accepted that a plant is anything "above the soil" and under that premise I bet they filed Charges-it yields them the greatest result and withstands the simplistic often used duck test.

 

HOW did they get access to your grow there are details missing that would appear important

 

I have an excellent argument for seedlings.... the classification of seedlings/clones as Plants

 

but they would be moot under certain circumstances...

 

How did they discover your operation

A plant is anything green that stands on it's own and is alive. If you have a living MMJ plant, from a sprouted seed/clone to a 20 foot high bush, count it as a plant.

 

Common errors-

 

1. Clones don't count cause they don't have roots.... They do

2. Males don't count because they aren't usable..... They do

3. I don't have to count my plants grown from seeds, or I only count 1/2 because only 1/2 will be female.... See #2

4. My plant count was maxed, but I was just making clones.... When you take a clone from another plant, both the clone and mother count. You just went from 1 plant to 2 or more, don't go over the limit.

5. I have two caregivers maxed with patients, so I can grow 144 plants under the MMMA at my house.... Again, don't ask for trouble. More than 99 plants at one address gives the feds heartburn. Just say no. Technically under the law if you had 25 caregivers living in one communal home, they could grow 1800 plants. No one here thinks that is a good idea. Where does the math stop? At 25, 20, 10 5, 2, 1 caregivers? The state and the act are no help, why not take the limit of 99 as reasonable and safe?

 

 

Above all.... DON'T PUSH it.

Leonard- anything above the soil is a plant - the test is PLANT or NOT PLANT

 

I don't think you suggested you having 1800 plants and dr bobs statements are more inflammatory than informational.

Under the Law, youre allowed 12 plants. Youre a caregiver you can have 5 patients, so thats an additional 60 plants. So theres a total of 72 plants. Rooted clones count as plants, sprouted seeds count as plants, mothers also.
