Michigan Attorney General Announces Legislation to Clarify Medical Marijuana Law

Attorney General Bill Schuette announces fixes for Michigan Medical Marijuana Act

Attorney General Bill Schuette didn’t mince words Wednesday as he was joined by local and state law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and the president of the Michigan State Medical Society, to lay out his plans to tighten up Michigan’s Medical Marijuana Act.

“This law has as many holes as Swiss cheese,” Schuette said. “It’s out of control and it’s time to fix it.”  Schuette has been working with lawmakers throughout the summer to help craft legislation that will be introduced this fall.  “We want to clean up the relationship,” Rep. John Walsh, R-Livonia, said. “What’s a caregiver, when can a physician certify and how is it distributed?”  As of now, it’s a package of eight bills that would among other things, make it a felony for a doctor to falsely certify a debilitating medical condition. Also, it would be a felony to knowingly submit false information on an application, and to possess another person’s card.

It also prohibits convicted felons from becoming caregivers.
