The Smoke-Free Weedup, Monday, Feb 27, 2012
Medical Marijuana is a $1.7BILLION Market
According to http://medicalmarijuanamarkets.com:
-24.8 Million People Are Eligible Patients
-About 730,000 People Are Current Patients
-7 States Have Markets: California, Colorado, Michigan, Montana, Oregon,
Washington, New Mexico
In 2008, the people of Michigan passed Medical Marijuana legislation. In fact, the people supported this measure so much that it passed in every county in the state.
Medical Marijuana is compassionate pain management. Those who suffer need the relief. And even though current marijuana markets will double in the next five years because of this need, there’s a problem….
Michigan police and the court system are mistreating caregivers. Police are posing as patients in an effort to exploit a weakness in how the law was written. Courts are using total weight of “medibles” (medical marijuana cooked into edible form) instead of the actual marijuana weight to assure caregivers can’t use “Caregiver” or “Medical Marijuana” as part of their defense.
Former Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox was in full support of Medical Marijuana. This is in stark contrast to current Attorney General Bill Schuette’s who recently suggested police officers would risk potential criminal and civil penalties under the (federal law) for the distribution of marijuana or for aiding or abetting the possession or distribution of marijuana if they return seized marijuana to patients or caregivers as the Michigan Law states. People in Michigan are questioning whether Bill works for the citizen’s of this state or US Attorney General Eric Holder.
