LANSING (WKZO) -- A medical Marijuana reform law has passed the Michigan State House. The bills give law enforcement more access to names on the registry, which supporters say will mean fewer hassles for card holders. Opponents fear that provision will lead to more harassment.
Proponents like the fact that it gives cardholders an affirmative defense in court if they are charged and allows growing marijuana plants outdoors as long as the area is screened off.
Because it amends the voter approved initiative, it will also need 3/4th support or better in the State Senate to pass.
