bobandtorey Posted August 3, 2011 Report Share Posted August 3, 2011 COA's July 22 Order, the Grand Traverse Circuit Court Order that the prosecutor is appealing, and the appeal briefs filed by the prosecutor, the defense and the AG's office. - - - - - The COA order granting leave states that: "O'Connell, J., would peremptorily reverse the circuit court's order of November 16,2010, and remand for further proceedings. I agree with the circuit court that Michigan law prohibits operation of a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana. See MCL 257.625(l)(a); MCL 333.26427(b)(4). I disagree, however, with the court's determination that the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, MCL 333.26421 et seq. (MMMA), grants the right or permission to operate a motor vehicle with marijuana in the body. Prior to the passage of the MMMA, Michigan law prohibited operation of a motor vehicle with any amount of marijuana in the body. MCL 257.625(8). The MMMA did not change the law. MCL 257.625(8) still prohibits any individual from operating a motor vehicle with any amount of marijuana (as opposed to metabolites) in their body."
