Medical Marijuana Update

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act has undergone some changes. Make sure you follow the rules or you could find yourself charged with a felony.
Remember, first, that marijuana is still against the law in Michigan. While the MMA allows for legal immunity under Section 4 and an affirmative defense under Section 8, unless you are compliant with all the requirements in these sections of this law, you cannot assert these defenses.
If you are going to apply for an MMA card, talk to an attorney and find out what the law really means and how to protect yourself. I have had many clients, who while having a card, have still been charged with “Manufacturing and Delivery”, a five year felony.
