  1. This oldtimer still reads these boards from time to time. Wassup Kevin!
  2. I would like to see the state save $350 million dollars, and stop incarcerating 16,500+ people every year, so yes I am in favor.
  3. They can't and won't enforce that ordinance. All these ordinances are designed to make it look like local governing bodies are "doing something". Relax, join MINORML, and be prepared to defend your rights!
  4. RepealToday.com Sign up to be a volunteer to gather signatures. We need to collect 325,000 before July 9 I believe, to put a Constitutional Amendment on next Novembers ballot. It reads as follows: A Petition to amend the Michigan Constitution Article 1, to add: Article 1 Section 28. Repeal of Marihuana Prohibition. For persons at least 21 years of age who are not incarcerated, marihuana cultivation, possession, bodily internal possession, sale, acquisition, transfer, delivery, transportation, religious, medical or personal use, or possession or use of paraphernalia shall not be pr
  5. One clarification, a patient is NEVER their own caregiver. They are responsible for their own plants as a PATIENT if they check the appropriate box on the Application or Change Form. Yes, you can both be caregivers. Nothing in our law prohibits 2 caregivers from operating under the same roof, just from a common or shared facility. I'm not an attorney and this is not advice. It should be safe for an individual and their mate, or other related family member living in the same household, to both cultivate under one roof. In terms of plant count, you could have up to 144 under one roof and
  6. Here's the dish on these ordinances.... They are in fact unenforceable. I would love to speak with just one person who has been cited by any municipality for violating a local medical marijuana ordinance. These ordinances are strictly for show and have no teeth. BTW, there is a debate in the legal community regarding federal HIPAA protections. The paperwork you send to the State is protected by specific language in the Act itself. It's presumed the Michigan Department of Community Health is bound by HIPAA to protect that information, but that has not been decided by any high court yet.
  7. 1ST ANNUAL HARVEST FESTIVAL BBQ The Cheboygan affiliate of MINORML and the Northern Michigan Compassion Club are proud to announce our 1st Annual Harvest Festival BBQ on Sunday, November 6. It will take place at 10484 Straits Highway, Indian River MI 49749, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm. This event is indoors and open to the public from noon to 4, but afterwards all cardholders may stay for football, fellowship and any leftovers. This fundraiser costs $25 and $5 will be rebated if you bring a new unwrapped toy, or a small sack of nonperishable foods for our partners (Disabled Veterans
  8. Even if he personally believes in the medicinal uses of cannabis, he's not on the committee dealing with the relevant legislation, and he's a party follower. I've attended his visits at the Cheboygan Public Library and he is way out of touch with the poor folks in this county. Medical marijuana supporters may have an even better friend in his democratic opponent, Gary McDowell. He just announced he is running against Benishek in 2012. I would like to hear his position before I support anything republican in 2012.
  9. I have not engaged in much discussion of this decision though I have read it numerous times. I have come to the same conclusion that Blueberry has reached (a while back I might add). The "Farmer Market" model with each caregiver managing their own cannabis, appears to comport with the MMMAct and this decision. Caregivers are the only people authorized by the MMMAct to receive compensation for cannabis from patients. All transactions MUST be between a caregiver and a patient. Caregivers would not be allowed to acquire cannabis for their patients from the caregivers operating at this locatio
  10. Call every one of them. If you're not sure if you called one or not, call again! These people are our biggest ally right now. Let's show them a little love.
  11. Here are all the contact numbers. Call these people repeatedly and tell them to adhere to the plank in the democratic platform that supports medical marijuana. Tell them they must protect the Act and oppose the Walsh package of bills. Tell them you will never vote democrat (it's OK to lie to these people, they are politicians) again if they support these bills as written. These people stand between the Walsh package of bills and the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, make sure they know how you feel!!! STATE SENATE Senator Coleman Young II 1st (517) 373-7346 Senator Bert Johnson
  12. The federal Supremacy Clause does not apply to medical marijuana, research Garden Grove v Superior Court. I will not tell you to break the law. I will tell you to fight the law locally. The Treasury Department letter to CPA James Campbell and the McQueen COA decision both contain language that protects patients and caregivers who are connected through the Department's MMP Registry, and who are acting in accordance with the Act. That relationship can only be regulated by LARA, and changed only by congress or voter initiative. I realize there are two court decisions that go against this
