Food Containing Marijuana THC Deemed Illegal by Michigan Court

Despite being one of the earliest states to approve the use of medical marijuana, Michigan has been maintaining a strict direction towards the legal use of cannabis.
browniesA ruling was brought down by the state Court of Appeals July 12, in light of a 2011 case involving the arrest of Earl Cantrell Chambers over illegal possession of baked goods and other products laced with marijuana’s active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). While Michigan allows the use of medical marijuana, Chambers’ possession does not fall within the bounds of the law, according to a news release.
According to the state’s medical marijuana law, “usable marijuana” includes the marijuana plant’s flowers and leaves. Extracts or any form of THC is not included in the law provisions.
Chambers figured in a traffic stop last January 2011, when he was found to carry in his vehicle a lot of marijuana-based products, some of which included brownies with labels that specify the amount of medical cannabis in each pack. Despite presenting his medical marijuana card, Chambers was apprehended and slapped with a 33-day jail sentence and a probation for three years.
According to the Court of Appeals, the case is now turned over to a trial court so as to ascertain if Chambers can claim the medical marijuana law provision that allows him to bring any amount that ensures the availability of pot “for the purpose of treating or alleviating the patient’s serious or debilitating medical condition or symptoms.”
