Formerstate senator: Medical marijuana advocates meant to craft a 'vague' law to tryto legalize marijuana

 

 

SAGINAW TWP. – A former Republican state senator says advocates of a medical marijuana law were "very blatant" in their attempts to craft a vague law "so they could basically legalize marijuana."

 

Alan Cropsey, now director of legislative relations for Attorney General Bill Schuette, said legislators and the attorney general's office have recommended revisions to clarify uncertainty in the act, or have backed Republican-led legislation to interpret the law's meaning.

 

Any changes would require a three-fourths vote of the Legislature since voters approved the law in 2008.

 

"That's a very high standard," Cropsey said to dozens of people at a medical marijuana education seminar the attorney general's office presented at the Horizons Conference Center, 6200 State. "We're hoping we can meet it."

 

Among the revisions in either pending legislation or recommendations: Patients must give the address of where their medical marijuana plants are grown and implied consent for warrantless administrative inspections of the location, Cropsey said.

 

Losing card or having it stolen and reporting it could mean a card holder could face a misdemeanor charge.

 

Medical marijuana card information would be sent to the Michigan State Police for entry into the Law Enforcement Information Network.

The former lawmaker also urged expanding a ban on caregivers with a drug felony to those with any felony conviction.

 

Recommended revisions also would ban use on child care and educational institutions, he said.

 

Marijuana couldn't be transported in a motor vehicle unless it was enclosed, like a gun, he said.

 

The proposed restrictions wouldn't force insurance companies to reimburse the expense of medical marijuana.

 

Cropsey also noted legislation, such as a proposal from Sen.Roger Kahn, R-Saginaw Township, would require a "bona fide"doctor-patient relationship before granting a medical marijuana card.

Ok say your sick. You've been coughing round the clock. You go to your doctor who does a chest X ray. He thinks you got lung cancer, refers you to an onclologist who confirms the diagnosis. Who then recommends cannabis for the debilitating side effects of chemo/ radiation. No ongoing relationship with the oncologist( they are recommending at least one yeat).

Now what if your regular Dr won't recommend cannabis?

No relief that's what.

 

They are putting it to the patients at every turn.

Shameful.

Would the implied consent be kept at bay if the patient signed the application all rights reserved or w/o prejudice UCC 1-308?
