Smoking pot in car not protected by marijuana law
LANSING, Mich. (WZZM) -- Smoking a joint inside a car while parked in a private lot is not protected under Michigan's Medical Marijuana Act, the state Court of Appeals has determined.
The case involves a man who was smoking medical marijuana inside his car in the parking lot of Soaring Eagle Casino in August, 2013.
In a 2-to-1 ruling, the Appeals Court said even if Robert Michael Carlton was in a locked car, the fact he was in a parking lot accessible by the public constitutes a public place and is therefore illegal under Michigan's 2008 Medical Marijuana Act.
Carlton was charged with possession of marijuana after police determined he had been smoking a joint outside the casino. They were notified about 11:30 p.m. by casino security workers monitoring a closed circuit camera trained on the parking lot.
The Isabella County Prosecutor's Office charged Carlton with possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, because he was smoking in a public place.
