Also on the agenda:

Michigan Court of Appeals rules-The police do not need to determine if the target of the investigation is a patient or caregiver before getting a warrant. This is a good reason the HB 4834- access to the registry is not needed.





Here is the worst quote from the opinion: “Contrary to the trial court’s holding, this Court has held that the MMMA does not abrogate state criminal prohibitions related to marijuana. The MMMA as a whole constitutes a “very limited, highly restricted exception to the statutory proscription against the manufacture and use of marijuana in Michigan.”



Lower Court: OTTAWA COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT, No. 10-034500-FH

Opinion - Per Curiam - Published

About Diane Goldstein

Retired Lieutenant Commander


Lieutenant Commander, Redondo Beach Police Department (Ret.) 


"Prohibition is unwise fiscal policy. Education and treatment would be far more effective."


With more than 20 years in law enforcement, Diane Goldstein has made numerous arrests as a longtime foot soldier of the war on drugs. After joining the Redondo Beach Police Department in 1983, she rose from a Patrol Officer and School Resource Officer to Sergeant in the Special Investigations Unit, finally retiring as a Lieutenant Commander in 2004. During her time on the frontlines, her perspective on the war on drugs shifted gradually to strong opposition. It was a change forged not only through her professional experience, but by the wrenching personal impact of having a vulnerable family member become a casualty of this war:

"I was extremely close with my older brother and watched him battle mental illness, through long periods of sobriety, deep valleys of marijuana and other illegal drug use to help him during severe manic states. As a youth, he made mistakes and was held accountable for them by the judicial system. But with psychotropic meds and mental health treatment, he managed to mature, remain sober and work productively until his 40s when he lost his job and was unable to afford ongoing mental health treatment. My brother was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia-a misdemeanor-but it propelled his descent into a justice system that wouldn't consider any mitigating factors, only his previous felony conviction."


As Diane rose through the ranks of law enforcement, she coordinated multiple agencies in probation and parole searches and became a specialist in juvenile crime prevention, gang intervention, and a recognized leader in crisis management. She also developed national training guidelines and policies for use during critical incidents.


Diane joined LEAP as a result of her own experiences and what she read in LEAP speaker Judge James Gray's book, Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed And What We Can Do About It: A Judicial Indictment of the War on Drugs. As she puts it, our nation's program of drug prohibition is fiscally unsound and fundamentally unjust.


A member of the California Association of Hostage Negotiators, Diane received that organization's Honorary Life Member Award, and earned the Herman Goldstein Excellence in Problem Solving Team Award for her work on a gang interdiction task force. In her spare time, Diane volunteers as Executive Director for the Bruce Randall Foundation helping at-risk student/athletes, and enjoys time with her family and grandchild.

      In this Special Edition episode of Let's Be Blunt, Montel Williams and fellow veterans speak out in support of medical cannabis in a virtual press conference organized by MPP in hopes of furthering the Compassionate Cares Act introduced by lawmakers earlier this year in South Carolina. According to the Veterans Affairs National website, veterans will not lose access to benefits if they use medical cannabis through a state sanctioned program, but they cannot allow use or possession at any VA facility due to federal laws, “Veteran participation in state marijuana programs does not affect eligibility for VA care and services. VA providers can and do discuss marijuana use with Veterans as part of comprehensive care planning, and adjust treatment plans as necessary.”

      I posted this in another thread but I feel this is an important victory that has been a battle for 13 years.
      Thank You Komorn Law - for the Court of Appeals win for Medical Marijuana patients on probation to use their medicine.  Now here come the other attorneys to ruin the MRTMA law stating that it's wording is the same.  I got $100 riding that some politician is being influenced right this second to modify the law to benefit no one but the state.  There will probably be attempts to modify the MMMA Act too.  The medical I assume will be phased out soon.
      I know your law firm has been fighting for the right's of patients and caregivers since the fight to get it passed began.  I know several people you have helped secure their freedom and have recommended you guys several times. 
      Keep up the good fight.  There are those that are going to try to manipulate the MMMP and MRTMA laws for their own personal greed and fear of competition.  I know you probably get caught in the middle. Press on but don't forget about the common person who always ends up getting ripped off.

      Medical marijuana patients have had their doctor recommended use of cannabis while on probation in limbo for a long time.
      Lead trial attorney and advocate for marijuana law reform Michael Komorn and his dedicated team of attorneys (specifically Ally McCormick) secured a victory in the Michigan Court of Appeals for Medical Marijuana Patients
      As many battles for marijuana patients, caregivers and business clients represented by the Komorn Law Firm loom in the background – a decision has been made to set the tone for future cases involving those on probation.
      “The prosecution argued that the district court had the ability to place restrictions on a defendant’s medication. The district court denied defendant’s motion to modify the terms of his probation, holding that it was bound by the “Circuit Court’s decision on this issue,”
