Jipo Posted June 9, 2010 Report Share Posted June 9, 2010 Alright I'm on probation with the city of Livonia, my judge said that he would leave it up to the probation department to decide whether or not they would honor my card status. Fast forward to my first reporting date, I had all my paperwork from my doctor, copies of my application and the check clearing, gave everything to my probation officer he was very nice and cool and said I was good to go and to make sure the counseling place that drug tests me got a copy of it as well which I did. That was 5/13/10, now today I go to report and I have a notice for a show cause hearing for failing a drug test for THC... I was under the impression that I was good to go since my probation officer said it, he agree'd with me and went to the department head and tried to get it canceled but they want me to go in front of the judge and show my paper work and records to make sure "I didn't buy my card from a medical marijuana clinic". Fine an dandy I have medical records showing past treatment of my separated AC joint in my right shoulder, but my p.o. also said they're going to want statements from the doctor saying how long I am going to be on the program and my understanding is my shoulder will never be the same, I'm going to have to live with the pain and treatments available. The reason I pursued medical marijuana is the flexiril muscle relaxers my doc had me one were to much with the side effects and I couldn't function as well as I should when on them, the place I was going was the Henry ford medical center, my doc would not no way sign the medical marijuana papers, she wanted me to seek treatment in the facility and stay on the drugs that she prescribed me. I contacted Dr. Ayers in Livonia through recommendation and sent him my records, he gave me an appointment and checked everything out, gave me a physical, checked out my shoulder and my records and determined I qualify and medical marijuana would help me out. My worry is that the judge is going to treat me going to a separate facility to pursue the card as going to buy my card and I'm going to violate probation even though I was told by my probation officer that I was good to go. Should I be worried? I have the records to present, I have copies of Ayers recommendation, my application, the cashed check (well past 20 days) They said they wanted to see a letter or something saying how long I will be under this treatment and my understanding is I'm going to be in pain in my shoulder for ever, it won't magically relocate the ac joint and my only option would be surgery which I do not want screws holding my arm together, I don't think that will resolve any of my issues and fear it making things worse.
