Michigan Medical Marihuana Act

Enacted in 2008, the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act allows patients with an active medical marijuana identification card to possess 2 and ½ ounces of usable marijuana and grow up to 12 marijuana plants at home. With the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act of 2016, patients can also purchase marijuana from licensed retailers, known as “provisioning centers.”

As long as you adhere to these acts, you should not be charged with a crime. At Oliver Law Group P.C., we help ensure the laws work in your favor.

Qualifying Conditions

To register for a patient identification card, you must have at least one qualifying condition recognized by the state. In Michigan, qualifying conditions include:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Cancer
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • HIV or AIDS
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS)
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Parkinson’s
  • Colitis
  • Glaucoma
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Tourette’s syndrome
  • Hepatitis C
  • Nausea
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Nail patella
  • Seizures
  • Muscle spasms
  • Spinal cord injury

If you were in possession of marijuana to treat any of the ailments listed above, our Michigan medical marijuana defense lawyers can help present your case to the court.

Medical Marijuana Defenses

Section 333.26428 of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act allows a patient and their primary caregiver to assert medical use as a defense for any marijuana charge in the state.

Medical use is a valid defense, so long as:

  1. A physician has evaluated your medical history/condition and decided medical marijuana would benefit you.
  2. You were not in possession of more than 2.5 ounces of marijuana.
  3. Any sales, transportation, or paraphernalia were designated for medical treatment.

If you can show these elements during an evidentiary hearing, you may have your charges dismissed. This means you will not be required to forfeit any property, nor will you be held to disciplinary action.

Our attorneys are experienced with criminal defense and can help you make your case during an evidentiary hearing.

Keeping Businesses Compliant

At Oliver Law Group P.C., we also help businesses that have been charged with marijuana offenses. Provisioning centers must adhere to strict rules and regulations, and misunderstandings can occur. If your business is at risk, we can clarify your situation and help you stay compliant for years to come.
