Planet Green Trees 191: Medical Marijuana Jury Tria

Tonight- A medical marijuana dispensary criminal case has been outright dismissed without the possibility of the case being recharged, or of an appeal reversing the dismissal decision!

PTSD was officially added to the list of qualifying conditions in Michigan. Hotel recommendation card mills for medical marijuana continue despite warnings from legal experts, and our discussion continues- Can cannabis cure cancer?

Joining us tonight- Superstar attorney Neil Rockind of Neil Rockind P.C. will offer his perspective on issues concerning hotel recommendations for medical marijuana and the doctor/patient relationship- He will also discuss the only dispensary case to be dismissed in Michigan without the charges being re-instated or the case appealed.

Tonight- The Michigan Medical Marijuana Review Panel met this morning in Lansing and voted to recommend PTSD as a qualifying condition for medical marijuana in Michigan. The affirmative defense, already a challenging scenario for many defendants and their lawyers throughout the state, has been made even more difficult by recent rulings in the Michigan Court of Appeals. The Institute for Public Policy and Social Research held it’s 19th annual fundraising dinner tonight in Livonia which included several members of the Michigan House and Senate.

Joining us tonight- Attorney Joshua Covert from the Nichols Law Firm in Lansing to discuss section 8 defenses under trying circumstances as well as other legal issues concerning medical marijuana.

Steve Green, advocate and patient, gave extended testimony today at the Marihuana Review Panel hearing, and will give an update on the proceedings and the recommendation to include PTSD as a qualifying condition.
