Court of Appeals Invalidates Patient-to-Patient Sales Under Medical Marijuana Act

Narrowly construing Michigan’s Medical Marijuana Act, the Court of Appeals just ruled that patient-to-patient transfers are not permitted. Isabella County Prosecutor v McQueen, Court of Appeals No. 108238. While I disagree with the ruling, I respect Isabella County’s decision to bring the case as a civil suit rather than a criminal prosecution. I seriously disagree with the county prosecutors who have made decision to proceed using criminal prosecutions against ambiguous conduct done under the color of a medical marijuana license.
