Detroit and Wayne County Medical Marijuana Laws

The Michigan Medical Marihuana Program under the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, allows registered patients to possess up to 12 marijuana plants or up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana for personal treatment. This can apply to patients who are treating nausea from chemotherapy, ALS, anxiety, malnutrition, Crohn’s disease, chronic pain, glaucoma, and more. Marijuana, also referred to as pot, weed, marihuana, or hash, is highly regulated statewide, and use or possession without a valid MMMP patient card can lead to serious criminal penalties.

In early 2015, a number of rule changes went into effect regarding the MMMP application process. The application fee has been reduced to $60 for everyone, and changes to other fees including caregiver fees were put into effect. There is also an updated form for anyone who wishes to apply for a registry identification card.

Failure to comply with the regulations set by this program, even if you are a lawfully registered patient, can lead to serious criminal charges. It is important that you work with an attorney anytime you or a loved one is accused of violating Detroit medical marijuana laws, and Grabel & Associates is always ready to begin defending clients who are involved in cases of all kinds.

Criminal Penalties for Medical Marijuana Crime in Detroit

If a person is convicted of violating the terms of the medical marijuana program by possessing more than the allowed amount of the drug, he or she can face up to 2 years in prison, accompanied by a $2,000 fine. If an offender is charged with intent to distribute marijuana that was gained through a legal registry card, up to 7 years in prison and a fine of $500,000 can result. If an offender does not have a Detroit medical marijuana ID card, he or she can face sentencing under regular Michigan drug legislation, and will likely be subject to much more severe penalties.
