  1. Rick doesn't keep records. There is scientific evidence that cannabis compounds attack cancers. The question is do they attack strongly enough to get the job done. Dosage levels are important for any medicine. The dosage level suggested by a few medical studies suggest a possible dosage level of about 1200 mg per day for a 100 kg person. Rick seems to have done something very right. I don't believe him to be a complete fake. Does he exaggerate? I believe so. I think he is very proud of what he has dome. I, for one, think he has earned the right to be proud. The first item of business is to replicate what Rick did up north. We have cases of skin cancer being strongly impacted by hemp oil. This was the first area that Rick saw success with. I've made attempts with two very serious cancer cases. One person has passed away and the other is hanging on by a thread. I believe it is possible to legally replicate Rick's efforts here, in Michigan. There have been a lot of people that have contributed material to cook down for this effort. Some of the projects we have on going right now include a terminal breast cancer patient and a seven year old girl with a brain tumor.
  2. In addition to persons arrested there are citizens that are victimized in crimes of theft. These crimes are being conducted by police. In the past, there has been a form of corruption that has existed within our police forces. That is when officers of the law take drugs for their own usage. Many times this will result in the person being released. Many of us viewed it as a tax. This is a perfect crime against a person. The victim can not complain as they were in violation of law also. This seems to be a well established habit, for some small segment of officers. Or perhaps not so small. We have a problem that arises when we are no longer in violation of the law. When the same chain of events takes place now, these officers are simply thieves. Plain and simple. Even when the material goes directly into the evidence room, it is now an illegal activity. A crime. With a victim. The medical marijuana patient. Our new law states plainly that the patients medicine is not subject to seizure or forfeiture. It can not be taken by the police and can not be kept by the courts. Sec. 4.(h) Any marihuana, marihuana paraphernalia, or licit property that is possessed, owned, or used in connection with the medical use of marihuana, as allowed under this act, or acts incidental to such use, shall not be seized or forfeited. More crimes against property: Our law enforcement agencies have become dependent property forfeitures as a source of funding. Two years ago everyone that owned property and consumed marijuana was ripe for harvest. There are some marijuana consumers today that don't fit into that category any longer. Sec. 4.(h) Any marihuana, marihuana paraphernalia, or licit property that is possessed, owned, or used in connection with the medical use of marihuana, as allowed under this act, or acts incidental to such use, shall not be seized or forfeited. Property, such as automobiles, is commonly taken in a property forfeiture action. That property is then sold or used by the agency. The automobile is viewed as being used for illegal activity and therefore subject to forfeiture. There is a case in Saginaw where the card holding patient was released but his truck was kept. This is theft. The victim is a medical marijuana patient. This kind of person is no longer an acceptable target for this kind of corruption. Vandalism: We have been victims of a terror campaign. A reign of terror directed by the government against the marijuana patient. Smashed in doors in the middle of the night by heavily armed military. Did I mention that the WAR IS OVER FOR PATIENTS IN MICHIGAN? Thousands of dollars of equipment gets destroyed in a couple of hours. Months of labor is destroyed. And another set of people are going to be in pain because their medicine was illegally destroyed. We are no longer the "enemy" in a war. We are no longer acceptable crime victims! Each test case in Michigan, that goes in favor of the patient, will prove that the police have committed a crime against a patient or caregiver. Will the criminals be arrested?
  3. Just stop in. Bring in you ID card. Your wife should be no problem.
  4. I think it proper that a questionnaire be sent out to every person convicted of any marijuana offense in Michigan since the law went into effect. And that questionnaire inquire of the defendant if the defendant felt that they had their rights violated under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. That these questionnaires be tabulated by someone trustworthy. The purpose would be to grant innocent records where proper and the return of any property illegally taken from the defendant. Further that persons that had interaction with police and lost property to the police without arrest need to be included into this query of the people of the state of Michigan. All current enforcement must stop while the situation remains. That situation is the grave risk the current policy poses to the patients of this state.
  5. There have been hundreds and perhaps even thousands of citizens in Michigan that have been harassed because of a major misconception. Most people that are arrested will plead guilty. They will probably be granted some mercy with their plea. These people will have had property seized that is illegal to seize. There is no question that there are currently people being drug through the legal system that are completely innocent. Normal procedure at this moment seems to be that property gets illegally taken and rarely returned. It will take a very long time before our system actually reflects the will of the voters. Harsh treatment of cannabis consumers has been the norm for so long that some members of the legal community have a hard time making the transition. In practice, they are still at war against our community. Not by intent, but rather by habit. The state is unable to protect the patients and caregivers of Michigan. The war against marijuana harms the mmj community. This is unavoidable. The only way to fully protect our community is to completely legalize it. Now then, I understand that it would be a very difficult task to just "make it legal." I would suggest that we simply put all marijuana proceedings on hold until we all get it figured out. The current system assures thousands of victims of the state. With new victims being added every day.
  6. There are two items being described here. One is the situation where a person is stoned on the job. Due to the nature of marijuana, other clues would have to be gathered to show the person was under the influence. The other kind of situation is where the person tests positive for metabolites. Employers in Michigan can not make the same assumption the state has made before. Zero tolerance does not apply in the workplace. zero tolerance (zt) is intended to catch ANYONE that ever uses marijuana AT ALL and deliver them into a world of bunny muffin. It is a tool in the war against marijuana users! It is intended to punish users. It is not intended to make a safer world. It is intended to punish whenever possible. PATIENTS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PUNISHED ANY LONGER!! The war is over for patients! The voters of this state decided that it no longer moral or logical to punish these people. To achieve that goal a section was included in our new law. 4. Protections for the Medical Use of Marihuana. Sec. 4. (a) A qualifying patient who has been issued and possesses a registry identification card shall not be subject to arrest, prosecution, or <strong>penalty in any manner</strong>, or denied any right or privilege, including but not limited to civil penalty <strong>or disciplinary action by a business</strong> or occupational or professional licensing board or bureau, for the medical use of marihuana in accordance with this act, provided that the qualifying patient possesses an amount of marihuana that does not exceed 2.5 ounces of usable marihuana, and, if the qualifying patient has not specified that a primary caregiver will be allowed under state law to cultivate marihuana for the qualifying patient, 12 marihuana plants kept in an enclosed, locked facility. Any incidental amount of seeds, stalks, and unusable roots shall also be allowed under state law and shall not be included in this amount. Let me highlight: A qualifying patient shall not be subject to penalty in any manor or disciplinary action by a business for the medical use of marihuana in accordance with this act. Many people have said that Michigan is a "right to work state." That is correct. It was passed into law a long time ago. THAT LAW HAS BEEN MODIFIED. Our new law modifies any existing law to allow for the medical use of marijuana. ZT is DEAD! In the courts and the workplace.
