  5. DETROIT (WXYZ) - A metro Detroit man who was a pioneer in the medical marijuana business is behind bars, serving more than 5 years, in a case that has some asking if he was the victim of selective prosecution, or if his time behind bars is an appropriate punishment for criminal activity. His family, his attorney and his peers all believe he's being singled out for what others are still getting away with right now. Rudi Gammo was sentenced to 5 1/2 years in prison. Supporters say that's longer than some child molesters, who have gotten out in 3 years or less. "My husband is everything for us, everything. He is the head of the family and he support us on everything no matter what it is," his wife Vida says. "My kids probably going to be 10 years old when he come home. I just want a little bit of mercy. because my kids and me and my whole family needs him, need him back." Vida says Rudi got into the medical marijuana business years ago, working at the job as if it were his duty, using his Green Cross on 8 Mile to help those who were hurting. Despite everything, the family says they don't regret the decision. The Cannabis Legal Group and their principal attorney Barton Morris have stepped up to help. "Rudi is one of the first people to be provided a medical marijuana dispensary in the city of Detroit, that was permitted by the city," Morris says. "It's my goal to see to it that he is released from prison, and his justice has been restored." Here's how Morris breaks down the case: "Here's the thing they were prosecuting him as a continual criminal enterprise. right. because Rudi has all these homes. Allowing people to grow marijuana in buildings that he owned to service the community. All the marijuana is being grown and being sold at the dispensary. He's doing nothing different than what all these other dispensaries are doing." Morris says that's how most medical marijuana business is done in metro Detroit - at least for now. "For the last several years medical marijuana dispensaries in the state of Michigan in the city of Detroit but all over the state have been getting their marijuana from overages from caregivers," Morris says. "So, they're being distributed to dispensaries all over the state. so that's what Rudi was doing so he was just one of the few individuals that was prosecuted for it and eventually jailed for it." So, is this a case of selective prosecution or the perfect punishment for the crime? "Up until now, there has been no uniformity, there's been some people prosecuted it and others not. And people like Rudi Gammo, individuals that are really trying to provide a service that our society wants and needs," Morris says. "Our society has said marijuana should be legal, so we should not be jailing people for it, especially non-violent offenders, that are trying to do within the parameters of this gray area, that we're in the process of right now. These individuals shouldn't be penalized especially when the laws are going to change."
  6. Wow! That was great thank you keep fighting the good fight Sir Komorn Law Rock's
  7. Published 8:36 p.m. ET March 15, 2018 Forty medical marijuana businesses across Michigan got an unpleasant visit Thursday from state officials and the Michigan State Police, ordering them to stop operating. And those visits are just the beginning. Hundreds more are expected to get cease and desist letters in the coming days. The state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs began the process of shutting down medical marijuana facilities that are operating illegally and haven't submitted applications to the state for a license.. "Any business that didn't apply for a license by Feb. 15 isn't in compliance with the emergency rules that were set up," said David Harns, spokesman for the department. "We did 40 today all throughout the state and there will be hundreds more." Harns wouldn't say what kind of businesses got the cease and desist letters or how the state had identified them, but most were probably dispensaries that have been operating outside of Michigan's medical marijuana laws. The emergency rules "permits an applicant for a state operating license to temporarily operate a proposed marijuana facility under certain conditions," the cease and desist letter read. "In order to comply with this rule, a temporarily operating facility must have applied for a state operating license by February 15. ... A person that does not comply with this rule shall cease and desist operation of a proposed marijuana facility." If the business owner doesn't shut down, he or she risks not being able to get a license at all from the state, the letter said, and could also result in a "referral to local, state, or federal law enforcement and other penalties or sanctions as provided in the MMFLA (Medical Marijuana Facilities Licensing Act) and Emergency Rules." When LARA and the Michigan State Police visited the businesses, they only delivered the cease and desist letter and did not confiscate any products from the businesses, said Harns. Michigan voters passed a medical marijuana law in 2008 that allowed caregivers to grow up to 12 plants for each of five patients who had obtained medical marijuana cards. There are more than 277,000 people who have medical marijuana cards in the state. Some of those caregivers banded together to set up dispensaries, some with the blessing of the communities where they were open for business. Others got busted, including many in Oakland County over the years, by police in towns that were more wary of the medical weed. In 2016, the Legislature decided it needed to get a handle on the medical marijuana business and passed bills to regulate and tax medical marijuana. It's expected to be a lucrative business with revenues exceeding $700 million a year. That could rise even more dramatically if a proposal to legalize marijuana for adult recreational use gets on the November ballot and is passed by voters. The state began accepting applications for licenses in December and is in the process of doing background checks on the business owners. The Medical Marijuana Licensing Board is meeting next Thursday and will begin considering some of the applications. But licenses aren't expected to be handed out until the board's April meeting. The licenses are in five categories: growers, processors, testing facilities, secure transporters and dispensaries. So far 378 applications have come in to pre-qualify for a license, which means that the business owners are going through the state background check, but still need to get approval from a town that has passed an ordinance allowing medical marijuana businesses. Another 117 applications — including 43 growers, 20 processors, 49 dispensaries, 2 secure transporters and 3 testing facilities — have been turned in that include approval from a local community. https://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/2018/03/15/michigan-officials-shutter-40-medical-marijuana-businesses-shuttered-michigan-officials-state-police/430422002/
  8. Detroit — Several people were arrested Friday night after police raided an east-side licensed medical marijuana dispensary that was hosting what authorities described as a “flea market” selling a variety of cannabis-laced foods. Police say about 150 customers were at Five & Dime dispensary on the 2000 block of Dwyer when they arrived at about 7 p.m. Many of them were not medical marijuana patients. The business had several tables displaying brownies, cookies, bottled juices and candy all laced with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC — the chemical compound in marijuana that causes a euphoric high, authorities say. Several other marijuana dispensaries had vendor tables set up selling the items. This was more of a recreational setup,” Lt. Jonathan Parnell said. “It went beyond the medical marijuana guidelines.” Lt. Jonathan Parnell said police made three felony arrests and six misdemeanor arrests of people who were operating the event. Six weapons were recovered from the scene. Authorities also seized 3,500 pounds of marijuana in different forms and several hundred thousand dollars.

(Photo: Nicquel Terry / The Detroit News) Parnell said Five & Dime is listed under the state registry as a medical marijuana dispensary, but it was not operating as one Friday night. The event exceeded the five-patient limit for medical marijuana caregivers in Michigan, Parnell said. The dispensary also violated the state’s law by selling recreational marijuana and allowing other dispensaries to sell products inside its facility, he said. The attendees, Parnell said, had been shuttled to the dispensary from the eight annual THC Expo being held at the Roostertail in Detroit this weekend. Parnell said when police arrived, there were people in line to make purchases, customers sampling items and live entertainment from a rapper. “They were conducting business like they were in a marijuana flea market,” Parnell said. https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/detroit-city/2018/03/17/detroit-marijuana-shop-bust/33023857/
