Tell Attorney General Bill Schuette and Gov. Rick Snyder to Stand up for State’s Rights for MI Medical Marijuana Patients.

By The Weed Warrior.

Shekina Pena Addressing
 Lansing City Council
Michigan Medical Marijuana participants deserve protection from Federal law regarding the dreaded 100 plant rule. With Marijuana being accepted by the will of the people, this artificial barrier must be removed or raised to accommodate patients.  Currently, if you are in possession of 100 or more plants, you will be charged with Manufacturing and distribution of between 100-999 plants or, 100-999 kilograms and, a penalty between 5 - 40 years in prison. These charges may include forfeiture of property and assets including bank accounts and cars. Patients Michigan are in need of protection and support from the top law enforcement official in the State to enforce the  10th amendment of the US Constitution regarding State’s Rights.

This artificial rule has been used by law enforcement to arrest people and seize property with reckless abandon.  The 100 plant rule is a tax or extortion fee to force people to plead guilty to something they were doing legally under State law.  In some cases, driving privileges are suspended for up to 1 year and the additional cost of being monitored by a probation officer is a cost to the taxpayers that can push the country off the fiscal cliff.  

It is legally impossible to be guilty of a Federal crime when the State of Michigan legally allows caregivers to have 5 patients at 12 plants each. This is a disadvantage to two or more caregivers who share utility expenses to drive down the cost of growing and maintaining a plant. The vote in Colorado, Washington State, and 5 cities in Michigan is causing the Mexican Government to rethink their opposition to Marijuana.  Officials there are asking their government “why are we stopping something that is legal in the USA”?

The recent yes votes in Detroit, Ypsilanti, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids, and Kalamazoo to allow for possession and use of Marijuana has changed the legal landscape so much as to force government officials in United States to rethink their Marijuana policies.  In the State of Washington, judges have been dismissing misdemeanor cases of Marijuana possession clearing out their court dockets.

We need leadership on this issue in Lansing from the Office of Attorney General regarding Marijuana. All Marijuana manufacturing cases in the State of Michigan should be dismissed immediately on the basis of Legal Impossibility!  

Currently, resources dedicated to killing jobs and stopping growth can be re-directed insuring that no one has to suffer from poor quality cannabis, K2 synthetic Marijuana, or any other imitations to the plant from GOD.  Therefore and if you can take 15 minutes, send an e-mail to Attorney General Bill Schuette and Governor Rick Snyder demanding that State Resources stop being used to dismantle and sabotage the Michigan Medical Marijuana Program.

Finally In 2013 all Michigan Mayors and City Council seats are up for re-election. This is a great opportunity to change your local government’s attitude towards Marijuana by demanding that Marijuana become the lowest law enforcement priority in City, Township, and County limits before Election Day  on November 5, 2013.

Our well being depends on YOU!
