    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. http://komornlaw.com/35-years-research-reports-driving-cannabis-marijuana/ http://komornlaw.com/mmma-court-case-library/ 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."

    Saw this on MichiganHempIndustries.com and thought it made sense. MARIJUANA ATTORNEY CLONES The “marijuana” attorney clones are spawning out of mist to hop on the cannabis train that very few lawyers, activists and victims of the system struggled to get a seat on. Those people are the ones that fought all along for the rights of those charged with marijuana “crimes”, fought for medical marijuana and exposed themselves to the public to eventually get marijuana recognized enough as OK to be recreational. These few attorneys know and understand the community and have been part of the community. The lawyers now appearing out of thin air as “experienced” and marketing for a page 1 slot position in a Google search have not been in the trenches. There are some that fought from the shadows and offered support, but they gained no experience from not facing the challenges. Some attorneys viewed these types of cases as a quick income and knew well in advance they were going to plea out. The new marijuana laws are intricate, evolving to adapt and require special attention to understand. You want someone who knows the inner workings of state and local governments and the laws where your business operates. Thinking of starting a cannabis related business in Michigan? Contact Komorn Law 800-656-3557. But first do your homework like the article says. It’s OK we welcome it. Start at the bottom of this page. Finish the article first! DON’T BELIEVE THE HYPE Before hiring an attorney or legal consultant don’t believe the hype they put out. Do your homework and check to see if the lawyer you’re looking at has some connection to the community and has focused their practice around marijuana. It doesn’t mean they should be 100% focused on it but a sizable portion of their practice should be the main focus. CHECK THEM OUT If they claim to be part of the community – check it out. Ask people in the cannabis community who they would refer or go to. Then ask why and what their experience was with the attorney. If the attorney claims victory after victory with little or no information (yes – there are privacy issues) something may be off. One could make stories up all day long. WHAT ELSE DO THEY DO Do they upload videos to you tube? Do they have a radio show? What do their reviews look like? Do the reviews look real? Look into it. This is the person that’s going to be the one who has your back, keep you safe and stand up for you if you screw something up. WORD OF MOUTH This article could go on and on but by now you should have been motivated to do your homework and make some good choices. This article was not made for SEO and Googlized to be #1.

    Quickest legal way to make money? Open a hydro grow supply store in an area that needs it. Or in a municipality that has opted out / banned dispensaries. A city that bans dispensaries means more people will grow in those areas.

    There's all kinds of cannabis out there for you to buy. Why are you dependent on this person at all? Start thinking about getting what you pay for. Keep it simple. If this caregiver isn't helping you then just submit a change form and they are nothing to you. End the dysfunctional co-dependency.

    Moving north

    All of the ordinances against patients and caregivers are nullified by the state MMMA law, and as upheld by the Michigan Supreme Court in Ter Beek v Wyoming. http://komornlaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Ter-Beek-v-Wyoming-S145816.pdf and http://komornlaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/York-v-Miller-335344.pdf Some cities are still harassing patients and caregivers of course. Even cities that have dispensaries and should know better (Ypsilanti area). So... Do you poke the city's eye with this issue? Get a declaratory judgement like Mr TerBeek did ? Waste time in court etc? It is up to you. Also double check that it is the township that your new home is located in, some of these ordinances are for the city and not the township and vice versa. You could call the prosecutors office there and ask if they are enforcing that ordinance in light of Terbeek v Wyoming. They may not be enforcing the issue and just leaving it on the books in order for the township supervisors to feel better.

    Well after looking at opinions all over the web and here regarding the advances in LED panels in growing I decided to do a start to finish grow using Yehsense LED panels the strains will be Chem Dawg Pre 98 Bubba Holy grail and Chem Bubba starting from clones will show each stage of growth in pictures to get and give a solid opinion of the 1500 watt panels vs a 2x1000 watt HPS setup .

    On my third grow with these lights my Headband grew a gazillion bud sites like shrubbery. So I had a gazillion buds, mostly mids. Next time I run that strain I'm going to have to do a better job of pruning for production. When I grew OGKush it didn't do that so much. So it depends on the strain how bushy it's going to get under the LEDs.

    Overheard conversation

    I was at one of the Bob Seger shows and overheard a conversation between a woman and an Oakland County deputy standing nearby. The woman complained to the LEO that there was a girl sitting next to her on the hill smoking weed. The deputy replied, "The voters of the State of Michigan have said it's OK so there's nothing i can do." After the woman left I asked him if the change has made his job easier or harder. He said,"Easier, that's one less thing we have to deal with." Very refreshing after so many years of malice.

    Caregiver needed St Johns MI.

    First off lets keep this civil You cant force anyone to give you a single bud for free the 12 plants that you allow a caregiver to grow is purchased cared for and harvested by the caregiver unless you paid ahead of time or gave him the seeds or clones the plants do not belong to you in fact your not legally the owner of your plants since you signed away your plants rights to your caregiver. Taking all of what I just said all in please understand a ton of work goes into growing cannabis, its a daily task and the majority of caregivers I know personally do not grow the entire limit they are allowed in the law case in point I have plant rights to 5 patient cards and a personal patient card that is 72 plants in the 10 years I have grown not once have I ever exceeded 30 plants in both veg and flower most times its less then 20 for all of my patients and I only provide to those assigned to me via the registry. My advice to you is to find a caregiver and discuss matters and quit thinking that your 12 plants entitles you to anything but a good product at a fair price which at $100 to $125 is clearly a steal in today's market and if the caregiver chooses to give you free medicine which at times I do be grateful for that and quit acting like your entitled your clearly not .

    Caregiver needed St Johns MI.

    OK, let me get straight to the point. You, as a patient, seem to think that a caregiver should give you stuff for free in exchange for growing 12 plants. This is probably because you think a caregiver will sell overages to someone else to make it all worthwhile. So I ask you this: How about you sign-up with a caregiver and pay an average price for meds and buy the surplus from the caregiver and then YOU sell it? Put the shoe on the other foot. And bend your mind around this: If every patient out there is entitled to free meds from a CG, why would any person grow for free? Where is this free weed coming from? And where did you get the delusion that every plant produces a pound? I hope you do find a CG...

    I’m back!!!

    I just finished my first complete LED grow. I have never had healthier plants. The indicas grew like a shrubbery. The next grow I'll have to do some pruning. One of the plants was so dense I had to harvest in layers. The tops kept the middle of the plant from getting any light so I harvested them then got a second, smaller harvest from the bottom of the plant.

    Thanks to Resto and KD for openly helping our community. I read some reviews on Amazon, and only one review was negative. I'm just not ready to make the shift; it's more of an attitude of "ain't broke; don't fix it." And maybe there is a learning curve with these lights? maybe not. It's hard to make a major change in one's grow. And I'm an old dog, so new tricks aren't my thing. Good luck KD. Thanks for the discussion of experience, Resto.

    In Michigan, as a cannabis person all my life, if they would leave it as it is right now I would be happy. I can grow. I can buy without going broke. Good selection and prices. I'm treated fairly in my neighborhood. If I could have looked forward from say 1980, I would approve of the rights I have now and think that cannabis heaven is right up there in the future. What we have now is what I have been fighting for, working towards, my whole life. I really can't complain.

    Recreational vs. Medical?

    One caveat to dropping your card without a medical card if you get into an accident and they find THC in your system you might get charged for intoxication causing an accident with your card your allowed to have THC in your system at all times not sure if the law has changed since legalization has passed to my knowledge but the state had a zero tolerance policy for THC .

    Cannabis advocates are suing the State of Michigan to remove marijuana from the state’s list of controlled substances in its Public Health Code. Although the passing of the adult-use marijuana law in Michigan in 2018, medical marijuana laws and the addition of bureaucracy and state taxes on marijuana sales, the state’s Public Health Code still treats marijuana like heroin. “For 80 years they’ve been locking people up and taking their possessions and harassing and terrorizing us as citizens because we like to smoke weed,” said poet and activist John Sinclair “I want to be part of every effort to completely remove the police from our lives regarding to marijuana. They’ve got nothing at all to do with marijuana.” Sinclair is one of several plaintiffs on the lawsuit against the Michigan Board of Pharmacy and its chairwoman Nichole Cover, filed last week in the Michigan Court of Claims. Interested in getting a license to operate a Cannabis Business. You need a full service law firm. Contact Komorn Law… 800-656-3557. Other plaintiffs include the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association, Dr. Christian Bogner, who researches the effects of cannabis to treat autism; Josey Scoggin, whose daughter is a medical marijuana patient; Paul Littler, a pharmacist; NORML of Michigan. The “absurdity” of the legal conflict between the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act and the Public Health Code has to be addressed, said Michael Komorn, one of the attorneys behind the case. “It’s intellectually dishonest,” Komorn said. For the past year, state officials have allowed caregivers to grow marijuana at home and bring it to provisioning centers to sell to patients — a practice that continues as there’s a shortage of licensed marijuana in the market. “This is not a controlled substance,” Komorn said. “The idea that someone would be growing an opioid … and bringing it to a pharmacy because they were running low on their meds is the scenario that would have to exist in order for marijuana to remain as a scheduled drug.” “Michigan’s Public Health Code was adopted in 1978, and mirrored much of the national rhetoric towards drugs”, Komorn said. John Sinclair has a long history of advocacy in Michigan; his 1967 arrest over two joints sparked the first Hash Bash in Ann Arbor. The Michigan Supreme Court in 1972 noted in the opinion that overturned Sinclair’s conviction that… “not only that there is no rational basis for classifying marijuana with the ‘hard narcotics’, but, also, that there is not even a rational basis for treating marijuana as a more dangerous drug than alcohol.” The post Lawsuit Filed To Remove Cannabis From Michigan Controlled Substances List appeared first on Komorn Law.

    Timers for lights

    Added note on "plugging into". Do not use the cheap duplex outlets that the big box stores typically sell loose. Use the premium duplex outlets rated at 20 amps. Mechanically the cheap ones have low quality spring loaded contacts that transfer the power to the prongs on the plug. As they age the contact degrades and it is not unusual to find the entire plastic piece in a molten mess or worse, a fire. Yes they cost a few bucks more, but I have seen more than one outlet melted and in one case an entire garage grow burned down.

    Timers for lights

    Maybe that's why my digital ballasts all puked? I hate em. Now just running magnetic and then LED. The only fire hazard I have seen is when the timers come part way unplugged and then arc causing melt down. Had that a couple times. I use those white ones with plugs on either side. Sunleaves brand. Nice to have the indicator light on them. I also use heavy duty pool timers. Expensive but excellent. They are Intermac. With your Titan digital ballasts I would buy the timer made for them. Otherwise you will void your warranty(joke).

    Can you get the felony set aside? I got my felony set aside a few years ago and was then able to be a caregiver. Prior to that I had to hide behind my wife being the caregiver. It was a pretty easy process and in all, I didn’t pay an attorney to help me with just followed the steps mandated by the state.

    I have been reflecting on all the damage done over the years due to the drug laws. Lives ruined, lives lost and all of the associated hatred and violence. There are now three generations of citizens who hate the police and government and rightfully so.

    Bump; Basically the same for me. I use an ounce of quality bud and make 2 cups of coconut infused oil. I use a magic butter appliance. Those 2 cups gives me enough for 120 cookies. (I make 60 at a time) I'm not sure of the mg. per cookie but they do the trick for my severe MS leg pain. And the good thing is the consistency. Every cookie is nearly the same strength.

    6 Defendants, 3 law firms, a "million dollars" of marijuana. The headlines write themselves. Were we in for a fight to the death? Not with me on the case. Other counsel were ready to fight this in circuit court, it was my idea that we should try to get this entire case dismissed at the district court level. The plan worked, all charges dismissed. The judge was also very smart, writing a complete thoughtful opinion so that if this case does get appealed, the issues will be clear. https://www.benzinga.com/government/18/07/12026544/detroit-judge-throws-out-1m-marijuana-case-in-the-interest-of-fairness Read more about how this all started.

    Changes are afoot at LARA. I suggested this a few times to LARA, that they should use the same online registration that Physicians, Pharmacists and Nurses use at LARA to register for licenses online. Also that we should switch to paper licenses, instead of the hard plastic cards. If the paper licenses are good enough for Pharmacists, Physicians and Nurses, they are good enough for Medical Marijuana Patients and Caregivers. Why waste time and money on certified mail, lost mail, postage, calling to check on paperwork, missing check boxes and missing signatures and all of those paper cuts and copies? LARA has to scan all of those documents, and keep them forever too. LARA HAS ISSUED NEW PATIENT FORMS , PLEASE USE THE NEW FORMS OTHERWISE THEY MAY REJECT YOUR APPLICATIONS. https://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-79571-472407--,00.html
