  1. I thought I understood this, but I have read and seen things of late that suggest I have been ill informed or things have changed. My question concerns, who actually owns the plants; the caregiver or the patient? Assume a patient (A) signs an astestation giving a caregiver (B) rights to grow plants for him/her. However, patient A only uses medicine at a rate of two plants per year. That leaves 10 plants per harvest for patient A that aren't being used by patient A. My question is, "Does the caregiver have the right to use those extra plants as he/she see fit or does the patient maintain rights to those plants and have rights to compensation over any of those plants the caregiver might sell?" I have been laboring under the assumption those were the patients plants and a caregiver wouldnt have the right to market those plants without the patients' permission. But now I am seeing different interpretations and they are confusing me. Thanks.
  2. This really is an important issue. I am a bit surprised it is not getting more attention in the community. I might even be more sympathetic to Radway if he was a local Michigan resident, but according to his Linked-In page he's not. On his Linked-in Page Radway lists his State of residence as Kansas https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeffrey-radway-8a26bb177/ . Another outfit I am aware of has also targeted Michigan. Their CEO comes to us from Flordia. In my area, local licenses to operate are being snapped up by Chicagoans. All of these corporate organizations have one thing in mind, exploiting Michigan, its residents and its sick for personal gain. These people have no allegience to this state or its sick. They are all about profittering and exploitation. End of rant? Maybe.
  3. I am confused about a treatment issue. I have heard RSO will lower blood pressure and one should be cautious. I am trying to lower my blood pressure, but it's not clear if the RSO treatment to lower Blood pressure involves a massive intake of RSO, similar to the 60 gram cancer program, or a continuous and on going maintenance does of a dab a day? The "Massive Dose Theory" presumes one consumes a massive does in order to "reset" the bp long term....The "Dab a Day Theory" presumes one cannot "reset" the blood pressure long term using a cannabis therapy, but that such therapies can be effective in "controlling" bp if the oil is taken in small daily doses. Anyone have any experience or thoughts? Thanks
  4. Ive only lived in Mi a year...I live in western MI....I found the capital for tomorrow but anybody an address on this Loft? Thanks
  5. That's my experience and my position as well...although I am not so sure about the CO ownership part...
  6. I am moving in that direction and "yes" I'd like to speak with you about this. I should be ready to proceed fully by year end. In the meantime, I'd like to get looped in a bit. I am new to Michigan and I am in the far western end of the state. I'd tried to send you an e-mail a few daze ago on these very issues, but got something back about...you couldnt get any more e-mails.
  7. The way they are talking about writing these ords doesnt seem to be much in line with the intent of the law....by requiring all CGs to grow in a common facility on the outskirts of town where space has to be rented or purchased would make it difficult and expensive for one partner to care for another....it strikes me as kind of mafioso in a way...to be a CG in this town for 1 or 5 patients (they dont care) you'll have to,l in essence, "pay tribute" to the person who owns the CG grow property in town or sells the spaces...I could do as you suggest and lay low, but why did we pass a law if in the solution is to stay in the closet?
  8. 7 trips to XXX. Just to chill Rokerij. I like the one near the Van Gogh Museum best. Also, take a field trip to Haarlem (20 min by train) Cafe Sativa Temple Ball mmmmmmm good! And dont forget shrooms in Vondel Park.... http://www.rokerij.net/
  9. I have a question on the following passage "The caregiver's intent must be to make a profit." Is there a typo here or am I missing something? I thought the statute said CGs can't show a profit so how can a CG intend to make one? Thanks again everyone. You guys ROCK! This is heating up. It appears LE has slithered out from under their rock and asserted themselves into the process. In a week, this town went from singing Kumbya on CG as Home Occ to "put them out on the hwy so the police can keep an eye on them". Its for our own safety, you know. CGs cant be trusted to plug in a light. So we need to be protected from ourselves, and apparently the residents, particularly teens, in this town apparently cant be trusted either because CG as a home occ would result in all kinds of break-ins. Obviously. Why didnt I think of that? Maybe, because I proceed from the basis of trust in dealing with people and adapt my position when they prove themselves untrustworthy.
  10. Thank You! I moved here from a "dont ask dont tell" state. I was about to buy a place here when this hit. If I wanted to crawl on my knees and hide in the shadows, I would have stayed where I was. So, the question for me is do I want to stay and fight or go buy a place in a more compassionate community...or at least one that follows the law...rather than their interpretation of it...if I decide to stay and fight with them this gives me something to fight with...
  11. As much as I'd like to believe that, I dont hear a lot of challenges to these ords based on that argument. If it was iron-clad I'd think movement attys would be all over it.
  12. Thanks. Could you explain this. I am new to Michigan and dont know much about this Farm Act.. if they are forcing it into industrial, then they are saying it is a commercial grow, which then it becomes part of the Right to Farm Act, and they can't stop you from growing anywhere. Are you saying you think if they force us into the industrial area, it makes growing a commercial enterprise and therefore somehow the Farm Act enters into it so you can grow it anywhere because they treated it as commercial? Or are you saying something else?
  13. The police in this town want to put all the caregivers in an industrial area and not allow caregivers as a home occ or in commercial districts. The idea is to put a large industrial grow (no one is saying who is going to own this building or whether it would be "condos" or what) on the outskirts of town so the police can keep an eye on the CGs. Their argument is it will stop a mythical rash of residential burglaries that will occur if caregivers are not isolated. Yeah, I know but it plays well. My question is, where do the rights of caregivers end and the City's right to zone against caregivers begin? I have never heard of this kind of an industrial park for CG idea before. Are there other cities with similar approaches?
  14. The Arrogance of Authority The DEA officer verbally exploded saying, " Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me !" Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removed his badge and proudly displayed it to the rancher. "See this badge?! This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land !! No questions asked or answers given!! Have I made myself clear......do you understand ?!!" The rancher nodded politely, apologized, and went about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher heard loud screams, looked up, and saw the DEA officer running for his life, being chased by the rancher's big Santa Gertrudis bull....With every step the bull was gaining ground on the officer, and it seemed likely that he'd sure enough get gored before he reached safety. The officer was clearly terrified. The rancher threw down his tools, ran to the fence and yelled at the top of his lungs..... "Your badge, show him your BADGE........!!"
  15. Can rescheduling be far behind? We now have recognized medicinal value, right? http://www.gwpharm.com/US%20Patent%20Granted%20for%20Sativex%20in%20Cancer%20Pain.aspx
  16. I didnt read anything in which he said he was speaking for the organization. I read where it said he was the "Founder", but that certainly doesnt imply he was speaking for the organization. Its a bit like saying every time Clinton opens his mouth he's still speaking for the US. No, he's not he's an ex president. Same thing to my thinking. If Greg claims to still be speaking for the org, that would be different. If so, could you point that passage out to me?
  17. i dont know him the only 4 relevant words in a very long post, wouldnt you say?
  18. Everyone knows some areas of the legislation are grayer than others. Some people work hard to stay within the confines of the legislation and work with local communities. Others choose to push the envelope. Some do so because they believe in a cause and a movement and that the time is now! Others do so only because they wish to profit from a situation. As a movement, some battles are not ours to fight and whether they are may not always be as clear as we think. Here's a little bit of data from our own boards. Make up your own mind on this one...but we are a pretty accepting group and being "Banned" from this board is not a glowing recommendation... http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.org/topic/26284-holland-mi-dispensarycompassion-clubcafeconsignment-malltattoosfree-hookahartcheap-paraphenalia-too/page__p__239109__hl__%2Bholland+%2Bdispensary__fromsearch__1#entry239109
  19. That was fun. Thanks for putting in the effort. Happy HollyDaze to all.
  20. Reciprocity Nevada does not have a reciprocity program with other states which allow people to become medical marijuana patients. If you do not have a Nevada patient ID you will not be protected from prosecution under Nevada law. The Nevada medical necessity defense should still apply to an out of state patient, but be careful. Avoid traveling in Nevada with your medicine if you are an out of state patient. The risk of having your medicine taken and facing possession charges in Nevada is not worth it, even if you might ultimately beat the rap with a medical necessity defense. http://www.safeaccessnow.org/article.php?id=2046
