      After the legalization of marijuana in Michigan, some patients are thinking they could stop paying the state $100 for the special mmp card , and just use the recreational marijuana law to grow their medicine.
      A patient with a registered card can use the ultimate defense and immunity to avoid a driving under the influence charge.
      Only adults 21 or over are protected by the new legalization law, but no one yet knows how the new law will affect driving privileges.
      Is the zero tolerance of THC in your blood law still in effect for adult use marijuana ? 
      The new law is similarly worded to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.
      Whereas the MMMA says
      While the meaning of "under the influence" was not decided within the MMMA until 2012, with People v Koon, that was 4 years of police arresting patients for driving with marijuana in their blood.
      The court in People v Koon came to the conclusion:
      Ignoring that for a minute, the Michigan State Police have been tasked with sampling saliva during road side stops for a task force on marijuana driving. The task force was created in order to find a nanogram limit for THC in blood, even though 50 years of scientific research on the subject has consistently said marijuana does not affect driving.

      So my advice is, if you are a patient, keep the patient card active until the courts either give up on all marijuana issues, or at least this driving issue , or it is decided by the Michigan Supreme Court.
       
      Basically, until non-patients get a similar "People v Koon" ruling from the Michigan Supreme Court, it is advised that any patients keep their cards to protect them fully under the MMMA.
      "Don't be the first person to test this in court."

  4. Hey y'all! I have ordered seeds recently from https://www.ganja-seeds.com/ and they have been awesome to work with. They gave me direct tracking on my order to see when I was going to be able to get my seeds. And they have top quality products!
  5. Yes, if the cops have permission to do so then they'll take it! but it's not a bad idea that it's not a psychoactive plant yet!) good luck to you and your business!
  6. Charlotte Figi, Colorado Girl Who Inspired CBD Movement To Control Seizures, Passes Away From Coronavirus April 8, 2020 at 4:30 pm DENVER (CBS4) — Charlotte Figi, a Colorado girl who was among the first children to be treated with cannabidiol (CBD) to control seizures, has died from complications related to COVID-19, according to the Colorado Sun. She was 13 years old. Charlotte’s story changed the way people viewed the use of CBD and she appeared in a 2013 documentary by CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “Charlotte’s story directly impacted thousands of families across the globe and has changed the face of cannabis in many ways,” The Realm of Caring Foundation, an organization co-founded by her mother, Paige Figi, stated. “Your work is done Charlotte, the world is changed, and you can now rest knowing that you leave the world a better place.” Charlotte was born with a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet syndrome. With 300 seizures a week, she couldn’t walk, talk or eat, and no medications worked. Her family had almost lost hope. “I was wishing for no more suffering because we had nothing else to try,” Paige Figi told CBS4. Then her family learned about the type of marijuana that’s low in THC but high in CBD. Paige began giving Charlotte cannabis oil potent with CBD and her seizures nearly stopped. The strain of cannabis was renamed “Charlotte’s Web” — and when word spread about how successful it was, desperate families flocked to Colorado. The Charlotte’s Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014 was named after Charlotte. Last week, Charlotte was hospitalized, for the first time in years, Paige said. She was discharged two days later. Then, on Tuesday night, family members posted that she had passed. “Charlotte is no longer suffering. She is seizure-free forever. Thank you so much for all of your love,” a family member wrote on Facebook. If public health officials verify her death was related to the coronavirus, that would make Charlotte the youngest victim of the pandemic in Colorado so far.
  7. You mean between users? That would work. Ever better, don't share your bong right now.
  8. I have used a couple of ounces of rubbing alcohol with some rock salt. The salt does not dissolve like it does in water and with some swishing around, acts as grit to help scrub off the gunk. Rinse it with water. If you want it to sparkle, a little vinegar rinse will help. Again, then rinse thoroughly with water to remove all residual alcohol and vinegar. It should not smell like either alcohol or vinegar when done rinsing
  9. Can u use disenfectant wipes to clean your glass bong or will it make u sick?
  10. Last week
  11. When I read your original post I see a beggar and a taker. That always rubs me the wrong way when I assume that you can fend for yourself. Now if you are laid up in bed most of the time I apologize. Otherwise, quit begging.
  12. I checked out one of the spam posts recently and they also offered fake ID. I'm certain neither the cannabis or ID would be delivered.
  13. Resto in the beginning it was legit for me to be a Caregiver and be in possession of more than 12 plants. The Law changed it is what it is. As I stated above I am a legal patient and have gone to great pains and sacrifices to never being a party of shining a bad light to this movement. That said I Rock what I can Bro. And the people I was a Caregiver to never spent a dime. I have shared everything I've learned about this Plant Freely and Honored to have a platform / (soapbox) in which to do so. Thank You Mr.Komorn. Besides Me Resto Your the only other 1 to be banned from here that I remember and yet here we are. You look on my music thread ugly kid joe tomorrow's world that one was for You. Hey I get it this concept just rubs certain people wrong. It's all good this Cracker will endeavor to persevere.
  14. Hello I am from central michigan area and am looking for people who share the same passion of growing and using top notch medicine like myself. After a few years of not growing I've jumped back into it with a small personal grow. Boy did I miss not having my garden. Anyways, glad to be here and hope to be able to network with some like minded people and share some knowledge. Thanks.
  15. Dude, can't you tell that English is their second language? Does it talk/write like any real American you have heard? It's important to be able to tell the difference. NEVER pay these types of ads any attention whether it comes in on your email, text, or a post. Nothing good will ever come from a SPAM like this. Asking them questions just gives them hope they found someone to rip off.
  16. This place is in CA and I questioned why they would post on a MI site.
  17. A recently released report from a branch of the U.S. Treasury Department states the Internal Revenue Service is preparing to launch an increase in marijuana industry audits nationwide, However, it also offers a possible way for marijuana companies to skirt federal taxes. The IRS is closely monitoring the marijuana industry and intends to target companies that have failed to pay their full federal tax obligations.The agency has plans to enforce the collection of those taxes. The report – written by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) – found there are likely hundreds of millions of dollars in unpaid taxes owed by the marijuana industry under Section 280E of the Internal Revenue Code, which prohibits standard business deductions by companies that traffic in federally illegal drugs, including marijuana. 26 U.S. Code § 280E.Expenditures in connection with the illegal sale of drugs No deduction or credit shall be allowed for any amount paid or incurred during the taxable year in carrying on any trade or business if such trade or business (or the activities which comprise such trade or business) consists of trafficking in controlled substances (within the meaning of schedule I and II of the Controlled Substances Act) which is prohibited by Federal law or the law of any State in which such trade or business is conducted. Definition of Controlled Substance Schedules Drugs and other substances that are considered controlled substances under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) are divided into five schedules. An updated and complete list of the schedules is published annually in Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.) §§1308.11 through 1308.15. Substances are placed in their respective schedules based on whether they have a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, their relative abuse potential, and likelihood of causing dependence when abused. Some examples of the drugs in each schedule are listed below. Schedule I Controlled Substances Substances in this schedule have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and a high potential for abuse. Some examples of substances listed in Schedule I are: heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), peyote, methaqualone, and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (“Ecstasy”). Schedule II/IIN Controlled Substances (2/2N) Substances in this schedule have a high potential for abuse which may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence. Examples of Schedule II narcotics include: hydromorphone (Dilaudid®), methadone (Dolophine®), meperidine (Demerol®), oxycodone (OxyContin®, Percocet®), and fentanyl (Sublimaze®, Duragesic®). Other Schedule II narcotics include: morphine, opium, codeine, and hydrocodone. Examples of Schedule IIN stimulants include: amphetamine (Dexedrine®, Adderall®), methamphetamine (Desoxyn®), and methylphenidate (Ritalin®). Other Schedule II substances include: amobarbital, glutethimide, and pentobarbital.

  18. I have a disease that makes my immune system get out of control like the cytokine storm. I have used a combination of Enbrel and vaping cannabis to control it. The disease has attacked my lungs. I have been diagnosed with asthma because of it. After years of my combination of Enbrel and vaping cannabis I no longer have asthma symptoms. That would be anecdotal evidence that anti inflammatory drugs could very well save people from dying of the COVID 19 virus. We may never have the kind of evidence one would need to recommend it. All we can do at this point is observe and try to make sense out of it.
  19. I have been reading a bit more about the 'cytokine storm' that seems to overwhelm the lungs in covid-19 patients. This is essentially an overreaction by our immune system to the virus. It seems that this overreaction is at the heart of the fluid build up in the lungs and so to the shortness of breath issue. I am no expert in this field, unfortunately. From what I have read, many of the potential pharma treatments try to also quiet this cytokine storm. I am just curious if there is any actual research on using cannabinoids to try to treat covid-19 patients.
  20. Sent you a private message lets get together and talk .
  21. Because the mail is a federal institution, it would be illegal, as long as cannabis is illegal on a federal level. A courier could possibly be used.
  22. The same, more or less. Practice of social distancing when delivering. It is medicine, even Rec dispo are open, so I think it's ok.
