      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."

    How to help patients

    OK. 1) Inspect all buds under magnification, looking for mold and bugs. 2) Proper drying and curing under glass (at least 30 days) 3) Proper trimming and budscaping 4) A clean grow room 5) A safe grow room
  8. So all of our homes are safe to smell like growing marijuana! And law enforcement might as well quit bribing the trash man to tell on us for grow scraps in the trash. What a wonderful State we live in! Snyder and Schuette free. Now that is the Great and Pure Michigan!
  9. Sen. Meekhof's bill SB1243 was defeated in MI State Senate. So home grows and microgrows are safe.

    He was part of the troll farm.

    Is Grassmatch a legitimate site?

    Which one? Sometimes he helped his other ID's. He would make a newby, ask a question, answer it, then thank himself. Not just on this site. He even admitted it! He said, "What's wrong with that?" or "So what?" And when the political stuff hit he was all over it with all of his ID's. Just like the Russians that did that all over the internet.

    Is Grassmatch a legitimate site?

    I had no problem Grassmatch had many id's and talked with more than one in a thread. Did that on many sites. Just a crazy, multipersona on the internet. Or a Russian hack, same same.

    Is Grassmatch a legitimate site?

    Personally I've only ever had this username on this site, for many, many years - prior to the founding of Grassmatch. I can only guess that the person you are referring to once went by the username 'Grassmatch' - a person who actually never had a stake in Grassmatch, but someone whom I consider a net positive influence in the early years of Medical Marijuana in Michigan and elsewhere. He was not a shill for GM, not a bot, just a person who dug our work as much as we dug his. I'm not aware of the problems Restorium2 and the user Grassmatch had. I came here originally to get/receive growing advice, strain recommendations, and connect with patients. I read way more than I posted, and I found (and continue to find) this site as mostly a source of inspiration.

    How to help patients

    OK, I'll bite. How will ordering cannabis from out of state and subjecting both parties in the transaction to Federal prosecution help the patients?

    I spoke to a business owner last night who may be interested in hosting us. He had already been thinking of doing something like this on a monthly basis. He is going to check with legal counsel and get back with us.

    How to help patients

    Pretty stupid to buy cannabis from Georgia. Look at the contact info. If you need cannabis there are very good dispensaries around Michigan. We don't need any stinkin' illegal ditch weed from Georgia.
