Michigan Medical Marijuana Laws – History and Overview

November 2008 – Voters approve of Proposal 1, the “Michigan Medical Marihuana Act”, removing state penalties for the use, possession and cultivation of cannabis by patients in possession of a valid medical marijuana recommendation from their physician.

2012 – House Bill 4586 (HB 4586) is introduced, amending Michigan’s medical marijuana laws. HB 4586 makes it illegal to transport or possess usable marijuana by car unless it is locked away and in an enclosed case in the trunk of the vehicle, and no marijuana is being used whilst driving.

2013 – House Bill 4834 (HB 4834) amends the medical marijuana laws again. This time, proof of Michigan residency is needed, as well as a bona-fide relationship with a doctor. This means the doctor must maintain medical records, as well as provide follow-up care. The types of ID accepted are a a Michigan-produced driver’s license, official state ID or valid voter registration. Medical marijuana cards can be valid for up to 2 years in Michigan.

2013 – Michigan Supreme Court rules that dispensaries are illegal. This ruling means that medical marijuana patients must grow their own cannabis (up to 12 plants, out of public view), or appoint a caregiver, who must be aged 21 or over and can be a caregiver for a maximum of 5 patients. Caregiver must not have been convicted of any violent felony (ever), or a lesser felony for at least 5 years.

2016 – Dispensaries become legal, but are not operational as of yet.

Reciprocity is given to other states, if the other state offers reciprocity with Michigan (e.g. a Nevada medical marijuana card).

Patients must be aged 18 or over in order to apply for a medical marijuana card for themselves.

Possession of any amount of cannabis without a valid medical marijuana card is a misdemeanor in Michigan, with up to 1 year incarceration and/or a fine of up to $2,000. Use in a park can bring up to 2 years’ incarceration, and may be considered a misdemeanor or felony.

Use of marijuana can bring incarceration of up to 90 days and/or a $100 fine.

Sale without remuneration is also considered a misdemeanor and brings similar penalties as possession. For remuneration, and the incarceration period could be up to 4 years and/or a $20,000 fine. Cultivation of less than 20 plants without a valid MMJ card carries with it a similar sentence. 200 plants or more, and it’s 15 years in prison and/or a $10,000,000 fine. This is a significant jump from the 7 years imprisonment and a $500,000 fine for between 20 and less than 200 plants.

Penalties for hash and concentrates are the same as for marijuana.

Sale of paraphernalia is considered a misdemeanor, and can bring a 90 day prison sentence and a $5,000 fine.

Any conviction will result in a driver’s license suspension of up to 6 months.
