Michigan Courts Side With Medical Marijuana Users Over Cities

Medical marijuana has been a hot button item in Michigan ever since the state allowed the use of the drug.  Check out the recent ruling from Michigan courts that protects the rights of patients across the state.

According to a unanimous decision from a three judge court, Michigan cities and townships have no right to ignore state laws regarding medical marijuana.  The court ruled in favor of a Wyoming, Michigan man who was arrested for possession, even though he was a registered medical marijuana patient.

Cities such as Wyoming, Monroe, Birmingham and Livonia have all attempted to keep medical marijuana out of their cities, placing a city wide ban on the use or cultivation of marijuana.  Cities have pointed to the federal ban on the substance, ignoring state laws.  The ruling made today in Lansing makes it clear that cities and townships do not have the authority to overrule state laws, thanks the verbiage in the state’s medical marijuana laws.

The moral of the story is, if you have your card and you’re playing by the rules, you don’t have to worry about being arrested for taking your medicine.
