Genesee County Affected By Medical Marijuana Ruling?

With yesterday’s ruling from the Michigan Court of Appeals banning patient to patient marijuana sales at dispensaries, several could be affected in Genesee County. The Flint Journal reports this would allow prosecutors to shut down the dispensaries, but Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton said it’s up to the communities to bring up the issue:

‘”If a police agency brings me a case where there’s evidence that the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act is being violated, we will review it to see what action to take, if any. … It’s up to those communities. They’re the ones that have to find it. I will review cases brought to me on a case by case basis. I don’t think we will see (too many cases). … Police agencies are pretty busy.’”

Several dispensary owners believe if the county starts shutting them down then it would create more problems. They think it would result in more people back on the streets purchasing it illegally. But it looks like it’s going to be up to the individual communities to make their own guidelines.

This new ruling was in regards to Compassionate Apothecary in Mount Pleasant, where owners took a fee of up to 20% from the sale of marijuana between people at the business.
