A patient is not actually considered their own caregiver.. they are a patient in possession of their own plants and any patient can be in posession of their plants even if they have had drug felonies.They can be in posession of their plants but no one elses. You can download a change form off http://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdch/Medical_Marihuana_Change_Form_3-27-09_272850_7.pdf Follow the instructions carefully and you will be fine..

Does this patient currently have the right to possess his own 12 plants?

 

If not the caregiver change attestation form has a place where, for $10, he can check a box and change the plants to him having the right to possess instead of his wife (his caregiver).

 

A patient does not become his own caregiver. No matter what machinations one goes through you cannot end up being 'your own grampa' and doubling the number of your plants or your legal holding of dry bud (the usual reason people ask this question, to increase their allowable holding of med and plants). Either he has one who is not him, who may or may not have the right to possess his plants instead of him. That depends upon how the original caregiver attestation reads) and also depends upon what his card says (on the back). If it says 'NO', then he gave up the right to possess plants. He can get that right back 10 days after mailing a change form and $10 sent to the MDCH.

So long as he has no DRUG-related felonies ever, he has the right to find patients and to become their caregiver.

Oops sorry i read that wrong so the answer was slightly wrong as well.. sorry..

Your friend sounds like he has Non drug felonies so he would not be excluded from being other ppls caregiver. Only drug felonies are excluded. Patients are not restricted by felonies.

 

The steps to change caregivers or take possesion of your own plants are

1. download and print change form

2. Fill out correctly and follow the instruction page completely

3. Send with a 10.00 check to mDCH

4. Wait 21 days

The caregivers attestation form is not the place to make a change.. You must use the change form to make a change.. The caregivers attestation has to be filled out for whoever is going to be a new caregiver if that is the choice. If you are taking possesion of your plants you must do that on the change form...
