When is Medical Marijuana Considered Legal in Michigan?
One of the biggest issues behind the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act and why it is failing to protect innocent people are its changing regulations. Since its establishment, it has already been amended more than three times. If you have been arrested for drug crimes, you might have not realized the medical marijuana laws had been altered.
As of 2015, you must follow several requirements to legally use medical marijuana, including:
- Possessing no more than 2.5 usable ounces at one given time
- Cultivating no more than 12 plants
- Cultivation is only allowed if you have no specified provider
- Proof of Michigan State residency
- Physician has diagnosed you with an approved condition
- Registration every two years (includes a $60 fee)
There have also been introductions of related infractions surrounding the possession and transportation of medical marijuana. Most notably, failing to keep it in an enclosed and locked case while operating a vehicle can result in three months in prison and a $500 fine. To some, the vagueness of this law is seen as an easy way to ticket marijuana users.
