How many times have you heard this argument: they should just legalize and tax marijuana? Turns out the argument was valid. Medical marijuana, now available as a result of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act, is aimed at helping those suffering from chronic pain or other debilitating medical conditions. In its first two years of operation, state licensing of marijuana patients and their caregivers has resulted in more than $8,000,000.00 in profit to the State of Michigan according to a new state report.
Despite an overwhelming majority of Michigan residents supporting the medical use of marijuana and the much-needed revenue, many state counties are targeting those assisting medical marijuana patients procure and use marijuana. The MMMA allows qualified caregivers to assist medical marijuana patients procure, cultivate and use medical marijuana under certain terms and conditions. Prosecutions with medical marijuana implications are ongoing in Oakland County, Macomb County, Washtenaw County, Livingston County and Wayne County.
