freemannabis Posted January 23, 2011 Report Share Posted January 23, 2011 (edited) Ever heard of this "Public Act"?: "PROSECUTING ATTORNEYS COORDINATING OFFICE ACT" Me neither, until today. Of course, mindless "pothead" that I, like so many millions of Michigan / Americans have been alleged by the anti-frees of the world to be, just may have read, heard or somehow have been previously informed of this "Public Act" before, but, if so, must've since forgotten to remember ...

Here's the link: http://legislature.mi.gov/doc.aspx?mcl-Act-203-of-1972 *** Now, can we help but to wonder, what, really, are the INTENTS of THIS ACT? Hmm ... looks like I'll have to research this "Act" a bit further. What I'd also like to find out is: "Has any one or more of the [so-called 'autonomous'] "Public Office" holders of 'The Prosecutor's Associations' that have since been 'duly authorized and empowered' by the statutes of the 'PACOA,' particularly those serving said "Public Office" since 2008, ever mentioned and/or discussed the People's 'Voter Initiative' now known, as lawfully "enacted," and judicially cited, by 'We The People, as 'The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act'?" There I go .... just thinkin' right outloud, again! 'm I bad. Please, forgive me, if I don't remember, eh?
