      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."

  2. Hello, I have a couple patient spots available that I'm trying to get filled in owosso area. I do strictly organic, thc + Cbd, concentrates and edibles coming soon. I think marijuana is too expensive, so I guarantee a good rate. Thanks!

  4. Well my girls are looking nice and healthy cant wait until they hit flower.
  5. Last week
  6. I bought a cheap unit to start out can always upgrade later. https://www.ebay.com/itm/DIGITAL-Color-ILLUMINANCE-LIGHT-METER-200000-LUX-PHOTOMETER-LUXMETER-Temperature/263794324833?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D1049e6600c174dae9577ec6d96a4d31d%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D263794324833%26itm%3D263794324833&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aa59bd765-7902-11e9-9004-74dbd180ed12|parentrq%3Ac84f1aea16a0a9cd81e4e252ffc16415|iid%3A1
  7. you are searching for a caregiver looking for patient and if i know, i'll tell you.
  8. I have the hydro farm but it measures candles to watts. I love it ,, has a 10x feature for HID and 5x for low outputs. cost was 90.00 ebay. seems accurate for HID not sure it measures par but can likely be converted..
  9. Should be lots of clones at the High Times event in Clio in June. More info go to High Times page for Michigan.
  10. I can help you. PM for details and needs.
  11. You can buy clones in A2 at Genotype. Check them out on their facebook page. Each week they post what they have available.. https://www.facebook.com/genotypea2/
  12. Yeah there have been cases where caregivers were growing in a separated office building suites each suite was rented out as upscale grow rooms Detroit police raided it and accused them of being part of a collective set of growers dont know whatever happened with that specific case but you are correct apart they are good by the laws Set by LARA but if they try to connect the two in some fashion then it could very well become federal .
  13. Is it illegal to buy clones from a person willing to sell them? Likewise... is it illegal to sell them? Also... I would think since MI has legalized both Medical and Recreational use, law enforcement would not be wasting resources on try to catch people selling/buying clones. Anybody know if this is accurate?
  14. Cannabinoids have the potential of becoming a useful treatment for glaucoma, as they seem to have neuroprotective properties and effectively reduce intraocular pressure.
  15. Both of you are growing 72 plants ? Do your patients consume this much medicine because we are talking about an awful lot dried medicine here but as long as the dwellings are separated it should be within the law .
  16. I bought the hydrofarm hand held quantum par meter and found that there are a number of issues with trying to measure par. First is the accuracy of the meter. I saw online that the majority of par meters go for 300-500 and the hydro farm unit is 100-150. At this point I am not confident in the accuracy. My interest was in trying to come up with some objective decision point as to when my gavita bulbs need changing. I measured 8 new ones and my 8 year old ones to create a baseline. I also experimented with changing out the reflector (Gavita claims the aluminum gets so hot it oxidizes and needs to be changed with the bulb). It made a slight difference. The reason for my lack of confidence in the accuracy of the meter is I am getting readings in the 1500 to 1000 range and there is no reports of numbers that high in any of the literature. That said I just want to compare new vs. old so "absolute accuracy was not a problem, but it would be nice. The second issue with a hand held is positioning. A slight tilt in your hand held probe yields significant differences in readings. Also you want repeatable locations. I ended up setting a series of screws in the ceiling at different distances from the bulb and mounting the probe on a stick (end of the stick fit over the screw) so that I was always in the same location for every measurement going forward. Most of the magazine reviews you see of lamps use a grid that is laid on the floor and they then create a series of reading on the grid. This is a nice lab approach, but I used the ceiling as my measuring point since I wanted to be able to measure with plants present and using the floor was just impractical. Anyway, hope my personal experience helps with your plans going forward.
  17. But if it is a duplex with 2 different addresses(apartment A and apartment B) and 2 different caregivers, would that still be a issue? thanks
  18. Filled it, and also have been given preliminary approval from my township for a microbusiness license when they become available. Woooo Hoooo!
  19. Well im adjusting to two 1500 panels and don't want to fry my girls so im thinking a light meter will help me better determine where the panels should hang above the top of the plants.
  20. I used spinosad for a decent size mite population they were on half my plants by the time i spotted them. I treated every mprning before the light went off for 5 days in a row completely saturating the underside and top of plant. I also watered the plants a few times with the spinosad. I dont know if that did anything or not. But it definataly worked. I only treated twice for five days each time the second was just a precaution as i was flipping to flower. All the spinosad trwatment i did was during the veg stage and had no mites at all all tge way to harvest. Hope this helps
  21. Further back in the thread he said he was using the hydrofarm unit. I am guessing it is the one that sells for around 100-150.
  22. The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act does not prohibit this. But significant issues exist under federal law for sites with more than 100 plants. I think there are a few (at least two) people from Michigan who are doing time in federal prison for this issue.
  23. Hi - if I own a duplex and I am a caregiver growing my 72 plants and my renter in the other half of duplex is also a caregiver, can he also grow his 72 plants? thanks
  24. I've read your forum, i think you done a good job to share this kind of Forum and also: Cannabidiol (CBD) shows similar efficacy in the severe paediatric epilepsies to other antiepileptic drugs. Careful down‐titration of benzodiazepines is essential to minimize sedation with adjunctive CBD.
  25. What kind of light meter are you using?
