You May Think You're Safe, But You Could Still Face Medical Marijuana Dispensary Charges

Contextual Image

Medical marijuana provision centers and dispensaries are illegal under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA), which only allows marijuana to be transferred between a patient and his or her caregiver.

Some counties and municipalities do recognize the value dispensaries provide — which includes accepting overages from caregivers and providing much-needed medicine to patients — and choose not to enforce the prohibition. Just because your county or city does not enforce this part of the MMMA, however, does not mean you are protected from facing criminal charges for operating a dispensary. Make sure you understand your rights.
