New Lyon Township Marijuana Caregiver Rules Are A New Low

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Fri, April, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

A new ordinance enacted by Oakland County’s Lyon Township would force all persons approved by the state to engage in caregiving for a medical marijuana patient to move into the R1 Residential-Agricultural zone, a move that has motivated at least one area patient and caregiver to take action. “I had no idea they were trying to do this in my township, until a newspaper reporter called me for a quote,” said Steve Greene, Township resident, medical marijuana program participant and host ofthe Full Melt radio show. “I told the reporter that this was all feel-good legislation but had no measure of effect because it is indeed rendered unenforceable by the settled law of Ter Beek.”

Greene sued the Township once before on the basis that they were incorrectly enforcing the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (The Act). In 2011 Township attorney Matthew Quinn said in the Detroit News, ”Our ordinance focuses on any land use which violates federal, state or local ordinance. People can grow marijuana elsewhere, but Lyon Township doesn’t want it.” Greene’s suit against Lyon Township mirrored an action by the ACLU of Michigan against several other cities for the same style of ordinance.

Georgia: Leaked Emails Show Governor Never Intends to Expand Medical Marijuana Law

Category: News | Posted on Fri, April, 1st 2016 by THCFinder

Even while the majority of Georgia residents stood in favor of legislation to establish a cultivation and distribution system that would prevent the state’s registered medical marijuana patients from engaging in drug trafficking, a new report shows that Governor Nathan Deal had doomed the concept of growing weed on Georgia soil long before the bill ever had a chance to be slaughtered in the state legislature.

An internal email trail between Governor Deal’s office and Representative Allen Peake, the lawmaker responsible for introducing the cultivation proposal, reveals that ever since Georgia officials got back from a Colorado fact-finding mission in November 2015, the fix has been in to ensure a medical marijuana expansion plan never sees the light of day.

Gary Johnson predicts Obama will reclassify marijuana on way out of office

Category: News | Posted on Thu, March, 31st 2016 by THCFinder

Former New Mexico Gov. and 2016 Libertarian White House hopeful Gary Johnson says he thinks President Obama is going to remove marijuana from the government’s “Schedule I” list of narcotics considered particularly harmful and addictive on his way out of office.

“It’s going to be just like alcohol,” Mr. Johnson told The Washington Times Tuesday. “I’m going to predict that Obama, when he leaves office, is going to deschedule marijuana as a Class I narcotic. I wish he would have done that to this point, but I think he’s going to do that going out the door. That’s a positive.”

Marijuana is currently on the Schedule I list alongside drugs like LSD and heroin. The Drug Enforcement Agency defines Class I drugs as having a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use.
