The Ruling Repealing Marijuana As A Schedule 1 Controlled Substance

The Ruling Repealing Marijuana’s Classification as a Schedule 1 Controlled Substance:

“This Court also finds that the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act’s
explicit language finding that marijuana has accepted medical uses is explicitly inconsistent with the definition of a Schedule 1 substance found in MCL 333.7211 and the classification of marijuana asa Schedule 1 substance. Therefore, this Court also finds that MCL 333.7212 as it relates to marijuana, is repealed by implication by the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.”

  1. That’s funny- they didn’t care to mention what MCL 333.7212 is. “repealed by implication of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.” sounds like a good thing, though. So cheers!

  2. I think this is a good stepping stone. Hypothetically, the court is saying that if Michigan (medical community) has found that marijuana DOES have medicinal properties and prescribed marijuana for such medical uses, then, by default, the Schedule I Classification is wrong.
    (I think.)
    If that is correct, then it (should) force the government to either leave Michigan marijuana alone or fight it out in court, where those pesky facts about actual medical benefits get in the way of the Government’s case.
    This should be interesting.
