Key Michigan MMJ Bills Come Down to the Wire

The future of dispensaries in Michigan hangs in the balance as police groups and public health officials rally to stop two key MMJ bills from advancing.

The bills – which have already cleared the state House of Representatives and now need approval from the Senate – would allow the return of regulated dispensaries and edibles use by patients, according to MLive.com.

A controversial provision would also allow medical cardholders to sell up to 50 ounces of excess cannabis, which is causing discontent among the state police chiefs’ association. The association, along with the Michigan Association for Local Public Health, urged senators to reject the bills, MLive reported.

Still, Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville is attempting to modify the bills and said both could reach the governor’s desk by the end of the year. The Senate has until the end of Thursday to work through them.

“That’s more than enough time,” Richardville said.

The bills have been on the Senate’s desk for a year despite several attempts to get them passed.

    Yea 50 ounces is a lot …… I can see where the Cops and IRS may have some issues …..

    But selling an extra four ounces a month doesn’t sound bad, that’s a compromise, yes?

    All state-created ‘persons’ can be regulated and taxed by it’s creator

    However, man, the creator of government, can not be regulated and taxed by it’s creation.

    Do you know your standing in law?

    98% of the people have no clue of the significance of your standing in law.

    Only the creation can beg its creator for permission to do something. ‘persons’ are created by the gov [1868 14th amendment US citizen, legal person]; you are not a ‘person’ as defined in their legal dictionaries. You are a man, created by g0d, in His image and likeness, with un-a-lien-able rights. State-created ‘persons’ and ‘citizens’ only have ‘civil rights’ granted to it by it’s creator, the gov.
