Michigan Seminar Focuses On Medical Marijuana Act issues
The free event took place from 9 a.m. to noon Tuesday at the Ionia County ISD East Campus, hosted by the Ionia County Substance Abuse Initiative. Kenneth Stecker of the Prosecuting Attorney Association of Michigan was there to present the information and answer questions attendees had concerning individual cases.
Local health care providers, law enforcement, social workers, members of the court and more learned about the “Michigan Medical Marihuana Act” (MMMA) as it pertains to the Michigan law. Kenneth Stecker said he travels statewide to give the information, and believes it is important for many to learn. “I think there is still a lot of issues, and individuals are still seeking information about the law,” said Stecker.
He began with categorizing marijuana as a “Schedule 1” drug, which the federal government does not recognize or accept as using for medical purposes and deems the possession, distribution and manufacture of the substance a criminal offense.
