medical marihuana

Canada is kicking off a $1.3 billion medical marijuana initiative on Tuesday that it hopes will serve nearly half a million residents by 2024, The Canadian Press reported Sunday.
With a goal to remove drug users and abusers from public assistance, lawmakers have potentially jeopardized the more than 120,000 medical marihuana patients in the state, some of whom rely on public assistance, disability and social security to survive.
Law-abiding patients possessing well below the state-approved amount of medical marijuana are forced to defend themselves in court for following the law. The Linden arrest policy is seemingly bent on circumventing Michigan's medical marijuana law.
The take-home message here is that it is the context within which marijuana is used that is determinative as to its effect.
