The Michigan appeals court says there’s nothing illegal about a medical marijuana user providing a small amount of pot to another registered user at no cost.
The appeals court agreed on January 30 2013, Wednesday with a Barry County judge who had dismissed charges against Tony Green. Mr. Green provided less than 2.5 ounces to Al Thornton in Nashville, Mich., in September 2011. Both were qualified to use medical marijuana.
One key issue here is this was not a sale. The court said that state-registered patients can legally deliver the drug to one another, as long as they don’t exchange money.
The other good news is, seeds can shared between people who are qualified to use medical marijuana.
