Michigan Medical Marijuana Patient Numbers Spike

michigan medical marijuana town hallWe have new numbers on the growth of Michigan’s medical marijuana patient population- sort of.

According to Crain’s Detroit Business, a respected local magazine, the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs reports an increase in the number of medical marijuana patients registered with the state.

“Currently, the state logs 178,629 active, registered medical marijuana patients,” per the Crain’s report. In 2013 that number was 118, 368; in 2012 the patient population was reported to be114,694.

LARA has not posted the annual reports from fiscal year 2015, which ended on September 30, 2015, so there is no state document to refer to. The annual reports are required by the language of the MMMA; those reports detail geographic information, patient/caregiver numbers, fiscal data on the Medical Marihuana Program and the nature of the illnesses reported to the state by those patients’ certifying doctors.

In 2014, the number of patients was 96,408 per LARA, a number that was often cited but was highly inaccurate. Michigan instituted a 2-year registry program which meant many people did not have to register in 2014. 2015’s number should have an accurate tally, when LARA issues the data.

Police In Houston To Stop Arresting Minor Pot Offenders

Category: News | Posted on Wed, November, 18th 2015 by THCFinder

Beginning January 1, police in America’s fourth largest city will no longer be arresting minor marijuana possession offenders.

Under a new mandatory policy outlined by the Harris County District Attorney, police in Houston will cite and release those found with up to two ounces of cannabis. Those issued citations must agree to attend a drug diversion program, which consists of class work and community service. Upon completion of the program, defendants will face no additional punishment. They will not be charged with a crime, and they will not possess a criminal record.

Only first-time offenders will be eligible for the cite-and-release program.

The change is a welcome one for residents of the Lone Star State. Texas police arrest an estimated 75,000 offenders for violating the state’s pot possession laws annually—the second highest total in the nation.

Florida Supreme Court cancels medical marijuana hearing

Category: News | Posted on Tue, November, 17th 2015 by THCFinder

The Florida Supreme Court has canceled a Dec. 8 hearing that was scheduled to consider legalizing medical marijuana in the state, according to an Associated Press report.

Attorney General Pam Bondi announced last week that she would not launch a challenge to the constitutional amendment, so the Florida Supreme Court called off the scheduled hearing on the matter. Justices will still need to approve the ballot’s wording before the measure can move forward, however, as reported by North Escambia.


People United for Medical Marijuana sponsored the bill seeking to authorize marijuana use by individuals suffering from any “physician certified debilitating medical condition.”
