Michigan is still trying to grapple with the law voters approved in 2008 that legalized medical marijuana. Even after a series of legislative fixes and court rulings, patients and caregivers still don’t have a clear set of rules to follow.
WDET’s Jake Neher recently spoke with Michigan Public Radio Network State Capitol Reporter Cheyna Roth about some new efforts to make the law less hazy.
“Depending on where you live, it is very possible that, in order to get your medical marijuana, you are counting on someone to commit a crime,” says Roth. “Which I think is a frustrating place to be.”
This week, Roth attended the first meeting of a new medical marijuana licensing review board meant to improve the system. She describes the meeting as “chaotic” and says it didn’t provide much comfort for people hoping the board will create more order.
