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.

Judge Orders New Hampshire Agency To Issue Medical Marijuana Card To Woman With Terminal Cancer

Gavel marijuana miami prosecutorOn Tuesday, a Merrimack County Superior Court Judge ordered the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to issue a medical marijuana ID card to a woman with terminal cancer in order to expedite her access to medical marijuana.

Linda Horan of Alstead filed a lawsuit against DHHS Commissioner Nicholas Toumpas earlier this month, asking the agency to immediately issue her a medical marijuana ID card so that she can begin obtaining medical marijuana legally in Maine and using it without fear of arrest in New Hampshire. The lawsuit is available at

DHHS is responsible for administrating the state’s medical marijuana program, which has experienced several delays since Gov. Maggie Hassan signed it into law in July 2013. The agency began accepting applications from patients interested in participating in the program, but patients remain at risk of arrest and prosecution until they receive program ID cards. DHHS is refusing to issue ID cards until dispensaries open, which is not expected until 2016.

Horan, who suffers from stage IV lung cancer, filed an application with DHHS after receiving approval from all five of her physicians.

Statement from Horan’s attorney, Paul Twomey:

Florida approves 5 nurseries to grow medical marijuana

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, November, 24th 2015 by THCFinder

Five Florida nurseries, including two from Miami-Dade County, were selected Monday to cultivate and distribute the first legal marijuana in the state, opening the door to the sale of the non-euphoric strains to treat patients with seizure disorders and cancer by June of next year.

Costa Nursery Farms, of Miami, won the bid for the Southeast Region. Alpha Foliage of Homestead will grow it for the Southwest Region. Knox Nursery of Winter Garden, will grow it for the Central Region. Hackney Nursery Company of Tallahassee will grow it for the Northwest Region. Chestnut Hill Tree Farm of Alachua will be the grower for the Northeast Region.

The decision moves the state closer to implementing the 2014 law that allows for marijuana extracts that are low in euphoria-inducing tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, and high in cannabidiol, or CBD. The law was intended to treat patients with intractable epilepsy and people with advanced cancer. To qualify for the low-THC-based cannabis treatment, patients must obtain permission from a qualified doctor and be added to the Compassionate Use Registry.

Medical Marijuana Patients Deliver Petition Calling For DEA Head’s Firing

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, November, 21st 2015 by THCFinder

dea petition marijuana majorityToday a group of medical marijuana patients and their supporters delivered more than 100,000 petition signatures demanding the resignation or firing of the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) after he called the medical use of cannabis a “joke.”

The petition — — has more than double the amount of signatures garnered by an earlier petition that helped lead to the ouster of the previous DEA head, who also opposed medical marijuana. The current petition was started just two weeks ago.

“There is no doubt in my mind that my son Jagger is still alive today because of medical cannabis,” said Sebastien Cotte, who participated in the petition delivery. “Cannabis has tremendously decreased the pain and seizures caused by his mitochondrial disease, while improving his quality of life. For our family, that’s no joke.”

Numerous scientific studies show that marijuana is beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of serious conditions like cancer, AIDS, epilepsy and many others.

“My mom uses medical marijuana to deal with the severe pain caused by multiple sclerosis,” said Tom Angell, founder and chairman of Marijuana Majority, the organization that started the petition. “This issue is not a laughing matter for her and millions of other people who have seen the benefits of cannabis for themselves.”

Michigan Medical Marijuana Patient Numbers Spike

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

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.

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sun, November, 15th 2015 by THCFinder

Illinois medical marijuana dispensaries sold nearly $211,000 worth of medical cannabis to patients in the first week of legal sales, as reported by the Associated Press.

Those figures are pretty high, considering only eight dispensaries are currently operating in the state and less than a quarter of eligible patients have made medical marijuana purchases so far.


According to Illinois’ medical marijuana program director Joseph Wright, dispensaries served 806 patients in the first week of sales. Customers purchased approximately 406 ounces of medical cannabis at a price of roughly $450 per ounce.
