Michigan Medical Marijuana

The Michigan Medical Marijuana Program was first institutionalized in 2004 and provides protection for qualified patients against Marijuana Laws. In essence the program allows patients to use marijuana to treat a long list of diseases and disorders and to ultimately provide relief to suffering. Patients will be required to register and will be granted a Medical Marijuana License that will give them certain privileges. A patient will be required to obtain a recommendation from a registered physician. The Physician will conduct a thorough physical examination, study the patient’s medical history and decide whether Marijuana is an adequate treatment for thus said disease or disorder. With this recommendation the patient will be allowed to go to the Department of Health and apply for the Medical Marijuana license. Once everything has been confirmed the patient will be required to pay an initial fee and will be mailed the license. The process is very similar to that of acquiring a driver’s license. Once the patient has received the Medical Marijuana Card he/she is protected under the Michigan Medical Marijuana program. This means that a patient can grant access to a caregiver or can grow his/her own medication. A total number of twelve plants can be grown within the Medical marijuana program and up to two and a half ounces of useable Marijuana is legally allowed per patient. Caregivers are limited to five patients per caregiver. If a patient or a caregiver has any prior felony or a criminal record of any kind, he/she will not be eligible for the program. Currently there are no dispensaries operating within Michigan, but the State only recently allowed them to legally operate. Marijuana Doctors 411 will continue to monitor the Michigan Medical Marijuana program in order to provide relevant and time based information that will assist patients of all walks. Once Dispensaries are made known to the public Marijuana Doctors 411 will post the information on the website.
