The law also states that, according to the FBI, 99% of all marijuana arrests nationwide are made under state law, not federal law. It's important to note that drug possession is still illegal under federal law.

The MMA defines "disabling medical conditions" such as cancer, glaucoma, HIV, hepatitis C, and other diseases, as well as other chronic diseases that cause pain and nausea.

"Primary caregiver" is defined as "an individual aged 21 years or over who has agreed to assist the patient's medical use of marijuana and who has never been convicted of a drug offense".

"Eligible patient" means "someone who has been diagnosed by a doctor as having a debilitating disease". The basic mechanism of the law stipulates that eligible patients and first-time providers (marijuana producers) must have a "registration card" issued by the Ministry of Public Health.

Tens of thousands of applications were processed; Thousands of people are waiting with more people registered each week. The demand for marijuana certification seems insatiable here in Michigan.

The high demand is understandable. The cardholder will not be arrested or prosecuted for possession/distribution of marijuana as long as the patient smokes less than 2.5 ounces.

The health care provider is entitled to maintain up to 12 plants for each eligible patient. Unused items, seeds, and roots are not included in the plant restriction.
