michigan capital marijuanaA meeting on Tuesday in the Michigan House could provide clarity on the direction the legislature plans to take with pending medical marijuana legislation.

The House Judiciary will conduct what their official meeting notice calls “AN OVERVIEW PRESENTATION ON THE MEDICAL MARIHUANA ACT” during their regular session at noon on Tuesday, April 21.

Rep. Klint Kesto, a Republican from Oakland County, chairs the House Judiciary Committee. His office confirmed the presentation will be conducted by the Prosecuting Attorneys Association of Michigan.

The meeting is scheduled for a single hour, per the House Clerk’s office

Also up for consideration during that session: 4 bills, three of which deal with firearms law. The fourth originates from Sen. Jones, who proposes an amendment of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA) to allow landlords to ban smoking and cultivation of marijuana from rental properties.

Many advocates are hoping to learn the fate of a pair of bills launched three years ago and re-introduced in this year’s legislature. The Provisioning Centers Act and the Smoking Alternatives bills, HB 4209 and HB 4210, are assigned to Rep. Kesto’s committee but have not been formally scheduled for a hearing.

Sen. Jones’ bill has already been through the Senate Judiciary Committee and been approved by the full Senate.

The House Judiciary Committee meeting will take place at noon, Tuesday April 21 in Room 521, House Office Building, 124 N Capitol Ave, Lansing, MI 48933

Rep. Kesto can be reached through his office at:

Phone: (517) 373-1799
FAX: (517) 373-8361


Questions regarding the Judiciary Committee can be addressed through:

Committee Clerk: Melissa Weipert

Synthetic marijuana sends over 120 people to ER in one week

Category: News | Posted on Sun, April, 19th 2015 by THCFinder

In just one week, more than 120 people have landed in emergency rooms across the city because of bad reactions to synthetic marijuana, the Health Department said Friday.

The spike in ER visits occurred between April 8 and 15, with the majority of cases in East Harlem.

Synthetic marijuana — a plant-like material sprayed with chemicals to produce a high when smoked or ingested — is sold in grocery stores under street names like K2, Spice, Green Giant, Red Giant, AK-47 and “legal marijuana,” officials said.

It’s dangerous because of its unpredictable effects, including anxiety, confusion, agitation, rapid heart rate, seizures and fainting.

“That’s one risk, you don’t know exactly what you’re taking and exactly what effects it has on the body,” said Dr. Hillary Kunins, an assistant health commissioner.

PHOENIX (Reuters) - Advocates for legalizing marijuana launched a petition campaign in Phoenix on Friday seeking a ballot measure that could make Arizona the fifth U.S. state to allow possession, cultivation and consumption of small amounts of pot for recreational use.

Supporters have until July of next year to obtain the signatures of 150,642 registered voters in the politically conservative state in order to get their initiative placed on the November 2016 ballot, election officials said.

Formal paperwork to kick off the drive was filed with the state on Friday.

Following the leads of five other western states and the District of Columbia, the Arizona measure would legalize possession, cultivation and private personal consumption of marijuana by adults for the sake of just getting high.

Arizona is already one of 23 U.S. states, plus the District of Columbia, that allow marijuana for medicinal purposes.

Cannabis remains classified as an illegal narcotic under federal law, although the Obama administration has taken the position of giving individual states leeway to carry out their own recreational use statutes.

Under the Arizona proposal, adults 21 and older could ultimately purchase up to an ounce of marijuana through state-licensed retail outlets. They would also be permitted to grow up to six plants at home without a license.
