Michigan Penal Code

Recommended Posts

This section of MPC refers to the destruction of medical plants. Just another reason they won't recognize cannabis as medicine as they would be charged by law every time they play Leo Scissorhands.



[From Michigan Penal Code Chapter 85]


750.551 Trespass; injuring and destroying medicinal plants.

Sec. 551. Trespass upon field, etc., and injuring or destroying ginseng, golden seal plants, etc.—Any

person who shall without the permission of the owner, enter the field, yard, building, garden or other

enclosure of another and wilfully break down, dig, destroy, take or carry away any ginseng or ginseng seed,

golden seal plants, golden seal roots, golden seal seeds or any other medicinal plants, seeds or roots, there

stored, growing, drying or being, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.


History: 1931, Act 328, Eff. Sept. 18, 1931;CL 1948, 750.551.

Former law: See section 1 of Act 74 of 1905, being CL 1915, § 15411; CL 1929, § 17014; and Act 360 of 1917.




Maybe the 'Penal Code' should be changed to 'Penile Code'.
