Michigan Supreme Court Medical Marijuana Ruling Reinforces Need For Definitive Dispensary Legislation
Date:2/13/2013

DETROIT, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Patients' Rights Association today said that the recent Michigan Supreme Court decision of People v. McQueen reinforces the desperate need for definitive laws related to medical marijuana provisioning centers in the state.

An increasing number of patients have limited access to medical marijuana and now are in an even more precarious situation."

The Michigan Supreme Court case is a civil injunction case—not a criminal case. According to attorney Paul Tylenda , the central focus of the case was whether the dispensary was a public nuisance and could be shut down.  "This ruling clarified the protections available to patients and caregivers under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act," Tylenda said.  "It does not, however, provide immunity for a patient to transfer marijuana to another patient.  What should be noted is that the Court said 'sales' are included in the Act under the definition of 'medical use' and that the affirmative defense can be asserted in any criminal case involving marijuana.  Patient transfers that are not immune under Section 4 of the Act are still eligible for a hearing to claim protection under the affirmative defense of Section 8."

As pharmacies and doctors are not permitted to provide medical marijuana to their patients, many turn to med
