Joel Posted September 13, 2012 Report Share Posted September 13, 2012 (edited) My wife is a pragmatist. She also has allergies. She insists I take my plants outside on our deck to spray anything that may inflame her allergies or be a possible danger to our dog. I can't say I disagree. The belief in common sense does not seem to apply where medical marijuana is concerned. It appears you are in violation of the law if you take a plant from a veg room across the hall to your bloom room. For one thing you have to unlock the door to get the plant out of the room. A violation. You have to move the plant across the hall. Being in the hall, even for a millisecond, is a violation. Heaven forbid you take plants outside onto your deck to spray them so as to avoid any health issues. That is a felony. I know this because I am now fighting in Oakland County court for just that thing. Two years ago, I regularly took plants out onto my deck for spraying and for transplanting. The plants were not being "kept" on my deck, the definition of the word "kept" implies a permanent placement. These plants were in transition and not left unattended. I was either outside with them, or sitting with my dog just the other side of my sliding door from them. On a hot day in August of 2010 I was doing just that. Waiting for the spray to dry before I brought them back in when I had a visit from the local police who yanked my plants up by the roots, came inside, counted my plants and examined my paperwork. Finding me under my plant count, with all the proper paperwork and cards, they admitted I was otherwise in complience with the law, told me to have a nice day, and left. That was two years ago. I found out that this was not over when I was arrested after the Macomb County Sheriff's department discovered a two year old warrant with my name on it. I had been involved in a car accident and they were writing out a report when a check of my license brought up the warrant. I was charged with delivery and manufacturing, a felony, and spent five days in the county lockup. Not a good place for a sixty two year old man with a slew of health issues. My wife, the pragmatist, says it makes no sense. I agree. Perhaps Benjamin Franklin would have agreed, not so the county prosecutor. I can only shake my head in disgust.
