      Patients and Caregivers are discriminated upon in many facets of life, be it employment, housing, education, student loans, banking, travelling, medical care, prescription medical care, parental rights... and in this case, Emergency Medical Care!
       
      My client is a Michigan Medical Marijuana patient who was having an emergency. An ambulance picked him up, and against his hospital preference, the ambulance took him to the U of M Ann Arbor Hospital.
       
      While at the hospital, the patient, my client, in response to the standard medical care question of "list any other medications you are currently taking", was honest and replied that he uses a topical marijuana oil. He used the oil at the recommendation of his primary care physician to help with his cancer and chronic pain. He had the oil in his belongings when he was brought to the hospital.
       
      The Registered Nurse at the hospital then called the Hospital Security Officer, who then confiscated the patients medical marijuana oil and called the police.
       
      Why is the Physician - Patient privileged relationship being violated like this? My client told his nurses that he was a MMMA patient, those same nurses told the HSO and police officer he told them he was a MMMA patient as well.
       
      So what gives? The police have the discretion to investigate or talk to people instead of making a case out of something. Why waste time on investigating a medical marijuana patient? The police officer sent the topical marijuana oil to the Michigan State Crime Lab for testing, coming back positive for THC. The police officer forwarded the lab report to the Washtenaw County Prosecutors Office for prosecution. The WCPO then filed charges against this MMMA patient. All for .5 oz of topical oil marihuana-infused product that the patient had in his bag.
       

       
      Of course the prosecutors office did not blink an eye, nor did they use prosecutorial discretion. They issued the charges and sent the warrant to me so that I could have my client turn himself in. This is called a pre-arrest investigation at my office. If you ever have a police interaction but are not arrested, it means they are waiting on lab results. After they get the lab results back , they send out the warrant and arrest you wherever they can find you. Be it at your Home, work, school or driving on the road. When they arrest you at Home, they search your house. When they arrest you at work, you may have to explain to your boss what happened. When they arrest you at school you will be embarrassed. When they arrest you on the road, either you have to get someone to pick up your car or they will tow it. They will search your car as well. Then you have to post bond to get out of jail too. So hiring an attorney that will handle all of that, so you can turn yourself in, not speak to the police, and be arraigned and have usually a personal recognizance bond (meaning you don't have to pay anything, just have to show up at your next court date) is helpful in avoiding a bad situation.
       
      This is happening in Ann Arbor of all places? The city that decriminalized Marijuana down to a $25 civil infraction fine? U of M is state property, since it gets state funding.
       
      My Advice? If you are a Patient or Caregiver (or not a patient/caregiver) , never admit to anyone that you are possessing marijuana. Marijuana is currently still illegal and currently there are still people who WILL CALL THE POLICE ON YOU for having marijuana.
       
      In this case the patient did not have his card at the time he was hospitalized, but registered with the state afterwards. We prepared a Section 8 defense to the crime of possession of marijuana and were ready to battle in court.
       
      Instead of our Section 8 evidentiary hearing, instead of the prosecutor wanting to cross examine my client's physician, instead of testifying and all of the pain of a Section 8 defense, we went with a quick Section 4 dismissal. The prosecutor was SHOCKED that my client could not be prosecuted due to having his card now.
       
      Judge agreed and the case is dismissed.

      If you were charged with marijuana possession or manufacture, give me a call. I will fight to get the charges dismissed. 18006563557 http://www.komornlaw.com

  3. That is not really true there will always be a demand for cannabis in a over saturated market you just have to undercut your competition by price and not try to make your retirement off of one sale.
  4. CIH is very rare, maybe even non existent. Having helped patients with these symptoms I have found that limiting salt intake and increasing activity worked well. Smoking half a joint works for many people. Oddly enough, the smell of fresh lemon juice helps.
  5. I am looking for resources on using marijuana to treat a person with a brain injury. I would like to find someone with extensive knowledge on it to help us
  6. Please , can someone give me some advice? My wife has been sick to her stomach for a month now. Throwing up every day and being so nauseous that she cant eat! Side note, This happen in 2019 as well. It lasted 5 months that time. She lost over 90lbs. She is over weight, so most doctors sort of blew her off. We went to every ER, and hospital we could think of, even traveling to the Cleveland Clinic. Every kind of test was done possible, including upper and lower GI scopes. No one found anything, just every now and then would give her i.v. to help dehydration. This time arou
  7. Here is a study that would lead one to believe that cannabis, a known anti-inflammatory, could provide the same protection as green tea, muscadine grapes and dark chocolate; Chemical compounds in foods can inhibit a key SARS-CoV-2 enzyme, study finds Date: November 30, 2020 Source: North Carolina State University Summary: Chemical compounds in foods or beverages like green tea, muscadine grapes and dark chocolate can bind to and block the function of a particular enzyme, or protease, in the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to a new study by plant biologists.
  8. That is so wrong. ANYONE, no matter how healthy can come down with Covid 19 and die or worse, live with another diabillitating illness for the rest of your life and suffer the whole way. The stakes are higher than anything else you have ever encountered in your life so treat it that way. We are together in this but also separate with our own things we do as individuals that make the most difference. Our new 'job' is to realize that the air we breath can have spores in it that could easily change our lives for the worse for the rest of our lives no matter who you are, what age you are
  9. Of course addiction is in the mind of the addicted. You can convince yourself of most anything. However, the poisonous compounds in cigarettes were added to achieve addiction for the user to assure future profits for the cigarette companies. It's proven fact. God didn't make cannabis to make money. Therefor, there are no seriously addictive compounds in it. Just natural compounds that are easily broken down by your body and can be seen as addictive as a natural sugar. Be very careful because we are best at fooling ourselves and addiction is one of those things that a positive
  10. I think that the best way to fight against different diseases is to stay healthy, have a good sleep, eat enough quality food and do not have stresses. If you do this you may not worry about Corona. Aslo, your psychological health is very important becasue during lockdowns we have depressions and stresses and risk to become ill. That's why I use strains to feel better and to forget about what is going on in this world. Just have a realaxation once in a week to think about everything. My own recipe is London Pound Cake. I've started smoking these strains aftr reading https://askgrowers.com/strai

  12. I wouldn't start a marijuana business these days, because there is already enough of it on the market, and there is a big chance that I could lose my money.

  14. South east Michigan many strains available at great rates just holler thanks chuck kurutz5@gmail.com
  15. RESEARCHING CANNABIS | GEORGE HODGIN On this episode of Let’s be Blunt, Montel talks with George Hodgin, a former US Navy SEAL who earned his MBA from Stanford University. He is the founder and CEO of Biopharmaceutical Research Company which is based out of Monterey, California. BRC is a a federally compliant specialty cannabis research company that holds several Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) licenses that allow it to engage in legal cannabis activities federally. BRC imported the first ever legal cannabis (containing THC) into the USA under DEA permit from the European Union and
  16. Of course it does. People substitute it for opioids and since cannabis is non addicting and non lethal people can better regulate their own use. With opioids, people just keep using more and more with less and less return from their prescribed abuse of drugs that are poison for the body.
  17. As long as it helps treat the addiction. I am not so sure that marijuana is not addictive though. I know several people who went through rehab at https://promis.co.uk/ in order to stop being addicted to smoking marijuana. I have tried several times and from my experience it is even more addictive than cigarettes. On the next day I was already craving another joint. As for substituting one drug with another, well I am not sure what to think of it.
  18. Last week
  19. Sure, a site were you get entertained and they just hand out money... Truth; The site decides if you win or lose, so you always end up losing somehow because they just want your money. And you, spammer, are just an extension of the lie for money. Thanks for the opportunity to let people know that if you play poker against a computer site that decides all the cards you will lose. No doubt about it ....
  20. It so happened that I can't sit in one place, I always need to do something, so I found a site https://bettingking.in/ with top betting platforms. I like to spend my free time here, because in addition to emotions, you can also make good money here.
  21. As you know different strains posses different properties. With the current pandemic wouldn't be amazing if there were some strains to help with the symptoms. I feel like the answer is there also due to the two articles on the site about cbd helping against covid inoculation and about marijuana strains that have antiviral properties. I believe the answer can be found with the strains that are resistant to powdery mildew. Also the technology of plant based vaccines may find awesome results with hemp.
  22. The market is flooded I can get high grade hydro for 1800 all day sometimes cheaper.
  23. I have multiple spots open, please contact ASAP. (Contact poster via PM center no personal contact info allowed in open forums.)
