Changes May Be Coming to Michigan Pot Laws
Posted March 22nd, 2014 @ 4:02pm by The Associated Press

More than five years after Michigan voters legalized medical marijuana, advocates say gaps in the law cause needless confusion and prosecution.
 
Two Republican House bills aim to clarify the law by legalizing dispensaries and edibles. Neither was directly addressed in the 2008 law, but court rulings have since judged them illegal.

More than 100,000 patients and 27,000 caregivers are licensed by the state to use and grow marijuana.
 
Criminal defense lawyer Bruce Leach says prosecutors are using the law "as a weapon in a war of prohibition'' to turn law-abiding citizens into criminals.

One of his clients was charged with delivery of marijuana this past week after police raided his dispensary in June.
