Michigan recently legalized the use, possession, cultivation, and distribution of marijuana for medical purposes. The law permits a patient to possess up to 2.5 oz. of useable marijuana and up to 12 plants and a care giver up to 15 oz. of useable marijuana and up to 72 plants at any one time. Since the law is new, and there are parts that are confusing, the various courts, prosecutors, and police agencies have not been consistent in the interpretation of the law. If you are, or intend to be, a patient or care giver, it is essential that you seek the advice of a competent and experienced attorney.
