On November 4th, Michigan voters passed a new law by referendum (reeferendum?)  It's the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.  

What does Michigan's new law allow?


Michigan's new law allows patients with qualifying illnesses to use medical marijuana after being issued a registration card from the MDCH. This card allows the following:

- The possession of medical marijuana not to exceed 2.5 ounces. The marijuana must be kept in a locked facility.
- The cultivation of marijuana for medical use is not to exceed 12 plants and again must be kept in a locked facility.

The Bureau of Health Professionals (BHP), a department within the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) will run the program.


Now, I'm probably the last guy on earth one might envision taking advantage of such a program.  (No, really. )  And that's why I'm tempted to apply.  I have a "no brainer" qualifying Dx so it should be a fairly simple process I would imagine.

Not that I'd even take advantage of the end product...I'm just thinking it might be neat to add another license / clearance / government permission slip to the long list of ones I already hold....

So...should I fo and apply for the new Michigan Dope License just for the hell of it?  

Poll incoming.

It would be a fun conversation starter at cocktail parties.  "So, I'm having some trouble with my pot plants - do any of you know anything about growing lights?"


I'm actually quite the hobby horticulturist.  I don't think I'd have too much of a problem growing some of the icky purple shit if I were so inclined.

I got my wife an AeroGarden for Christmas.  Countertop hydroponics available from the WalMart for $49.99.  My in laws would shit bricks if they saw some Northern Lights growing in the kitchen.  That alone might make it worthwhile.

Hmmm, seems one of the questions on a Form 4473 is "Do you use drugs?" or something like that, do you answer No or Yes?

Will they take your firearms away because you smoke dope?

An addicted user in Fl is defined as having been arrested for possesion or use, and/or
being court ordered to rehab for above use. MI law may be similar. The feds sometime ignore a states legislation as happens in Ca often. I wonder if this will change with the new administration.

I wouldnt be surprised if weed is legalized under the new administration, He admits to using a fair amount of it in his youth... I am sure MANY of his cohorts did the same...

It may be the one good thing that comes out of the Obama administration

They won't have the system in place until April.  That, and I really don't feel the overwhelming need for a doobie right now.  

Besides, if I wanted to get fucked up like Anna Nicole, I've got about a half gallon of liquid oxy and a hundred fetanyl patches laying around here somewhere.  All quite legal, all potentially much more harmul than the wicked weed.

Apparently here in Nevada we have something similar.  A guy I work with hurt his back pretty bad in Desert Storm and uses the program for pain.  His doctor had to sign off on it IIRC.  Personally I never got the pot thing but he says it helps with pain management so what the heck.

Don't think so.  Read the language.  Read the thread.  It's fundmental.

The way the doc is worded, there are plenty of ficticious 4473s filled out every day.  For instance, if Bob has been prescribe .25 mg of alprazolam for the last six months to treat anxiety brought on by his marital / financial / social stresses, he is most likely physically addicted to benzodiazapenes, a controlled substance.  

Whereas a guy who is growing pot legally under state law for decoration in his living room is neither a user of nor addicted to an unlawful or controlled substance, including marijauna.

States rights.  Own a black guy, smoke a joint.  Unpopular behaviors.  Both lead to war.

"Michigan's new law allows PATIENTS with qualifying illnesses to use medical marijuana after being issued a registration card from the MDCH"

Um, the new law proposal up there is for patients, who would supposedly need the stuff for medical reasons, not for decorative purposes. You would be lying on the Medical dope application, or lying on the 4473. There is no in-between here. My guns are worth more to me than decorative pot.

Not sure if you did.

So if AR15's all of sudden became illegal, would you turn yours in?
Pot was a legal drug for thousands of years before it was made illegal 70-80 years ago.
Maybe you should read my post again?

Morally I don't see how you would scorn someone who would smoke pot but think because .gov says it's ok to  CURRENTLY use something more harmful, you're OK with it.

That's just weird to me.

I may have to look into this more closely if only to frame my State Grass Pass.  Would make a great conversation piece.
