WalledLakePatient Posted August 5, 2011 Report Share Posted August 5, 2011 If you are interested in attending or learning more about Michigan's medical marijuana law please visit : MichiganMedicalMarijuana.org To find a copy of the law go to http://tinyurl.com/3so28co Proposed changes and problem with change: http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB377 (gives police list of all patients and caregivers) Opens patients to abuse by police or people that get a hold of police list. Police don't need list, they can and many are knocking on doors and requesting medical card before raiding. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4661 (illegal to grow 500 ft of school etc) This would not only limit caregivers but patients as well. Would make it to expensive for people with many medical bills to afford their medication. Irrelevant, doesn't affect schools. http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB17 (outlaws compassion clubs) Stated reason is to stop people from driving while intoxicated. There is already a law against that and this is big government trying to stop a crime by outlawing a perfectly legal gathering. http://tinyurl.com/2011SB504 (illegal to transfer around schools etc) Another big government law, its already illegal to have medication on school ground, refer to state law. http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB418 (can't sue cities for violating mmj rights) Senator claims there are frivolous lawsuits, but doesn't name any. Is it a coincidence that police want a list of all patients and protection from being sued if they abuse them? http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB505 (excludes all felons from being caregivers) All drug felons are already excluded. There is no reason someone with three drunk drivings isn't safe to be a caregiver. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4852 (Have to follow local ordinances) Local ordinance could be that you can't possess or use the medicine your doctor thinks most effective. We should leave medical decisions to doctors. This doesn't focuse on large grows and dispensaries. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4397 (Outlaw Compassion Clubs) House version of Senate bill. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4850 (Outlaw all but caregiver to specific patient transactions) This would eliminate all dispensaries and make it very difficult for patients to get medication for first 4 months of illness. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4851 (Bonefide Patient doctor relationship and touches on locked and secured building) Any doctor that would risk his liscense for $200 is foolish and if there is one he can be caught and dealt with with current laws. I don't need big government in my doctors office. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4856 (Open intox except with Marijuana) This is another big government attempt to stop an already illegal activity by outlawing a harmless activity. http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4854 (Makes it illegal to advertise as a caregiver) What is the harm in advertising? I don't need big government in my newspaper. http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB506 (bonefide Patient doctor relationship) Senate version http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4834 (photo on card) http://tinyurl.com/2011MIHB4853 (makes felony to sell to someone without card) It takes months to get card. This is a way to undermine the 20 day card rule. http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB321 (insurance can't cover MMJ) I don't need my government to tell my insurance they can't help me. http://tinyurl.com/2011MISB618 (only 10 companies can grow MMJ. SB616, SB617 Also part of package) This bill is insane.
