      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. OK. So you aren't a patient seeking a CG; you represent a business interest. Got it.
  3. Claims to represent grow and processing facilities which want to purchase all the overages of medical marijuana in the state from legal caregivers.
  4. Today
  5. Why are you asking for multiple "caregivers?" Are you a patient seeking a caregiver? Why don't you just lay-out your plan without trying to trick someone to participate in your agenda. It smells bad.
  6. Hi. I need caregivers in the UP of Michigan. Please message me or send an email to davec@existoservices.com.
  7. All the best dispensaries are in Bangor Township, right next to Kawkawlin Township. The Bangor Township Supervisor, Glenn Rowley is a cannabis advocate. medical and recreational. He likes it in our township. Now Kawkawlin Township is more restrictive, got their noses in the air, and are voicing their 'concerns'. Since this venture is still in the planning and approval stages I think it would be a better match for them in Bangor, they should switch their location. I know of some prime locations in Bangor Township that people here would approve of. Nice and close to the excellent dispensaries here.
  8. A former Lions legend is working to bring marijuana to a Mid-Michigan community. The former pro-football player is breaking into a new business and hoping to set up shop in Kawkawlin Township. The plan is to rezone a piece of residential property in order to build a processing center. Many say if built, the plant could hurt the community. While others say it could pump in money. “You know, I’m not excited about it,” one resident said. “I think it’s fine. It’ll bring tax money to the community,” another resident said. Township residents are more than a little divided over plans to build a medical marijuana facility in their hometown. The processing center would be run by a company belonging to former Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson. Johnson entered the medical marijuana business shortly after his retirement from the NFL. Johnson’s lawyer said they plan to build the site behind an abandoned facility in Kawkawlin Township. The Kawkawlin Township supervisor said Johnson’s company is trying to get the parcel of land rezoned for industrial use. But their application did not include a required site plan so they had to send it back, which means it could be months before a decision is made. In the meantime, township residents have been voicing their disapproval on the matter.
  9. Yesterday
  10. I have a relative in same predicament down in Monroe.
  11. My plants are looking incredible im getting some major stretch out of a couple of them but outside of that they look very nice.
  12. GenotypeA2 is still up on facebook. They are in AA as the name suggests.
  13. Hey, I have a patient that recently was told he would not be renewed his pain meds, unless he gave up his MM. There were pain management centers that would allow the meds with MJ cards. What happened to them? are they still around?? need one in GR.\ Musk area. any help advice welcomed..
  14. Last week
  15. Grower for nine years. 9 strains 3 of my own breeding. Top shelf quality. Looking for patient in my area.
  16. As you get further into flower they will take more PAR so you can have them closer. You can let them grow closer to the light.
  17. My plants have never looked better but im getting some major stretch because of the panels being so far off the top of the canopy but when I had them lower the leaves started to get a bleached out look day 8 of flower im praying that I dont run out of ceiling .
  18. Ordered the glasses same time as the lights, glasses arrived first. Will take some time to adjust to the new colors. Thanks everyone for all the info.
  19. Indeed those lights fry my eyes without them you can get a good pair cheap on Ebay.
  20. I noticed when I started plants on HPS and then switched to LED I didn't get the full benefit of having them under the LED for the full cycle. So your next grow will be better than this one.
  21. I've got a 5 x 10 tent in grow room, now have a 600 watt for half of room and the 1200 watt led for other half. Really simple to set up the led light, hook cables to top and hang up. Cord is 5' long so no extra cord needed. Light is only about a foot from top of canopy so will keep checking for issues. Could shorten up the cables for light if needed. We will see which side of tent grows the best buds.
  22. Received the two lights in mail today, still got to open the box. Quick delivery. Will try to set one up and turn on tonight. Received the glasses yesterday.
  23. Saw a couple on CL today, hid very well. They don't advertise as clones anymore.
  24. Not sure when but there's none now. Even in the D.
  25. Really when did they take down the ads because about a month ago I went looking to see if any heirloom cuts were floating around on CG ?
