Medical Marijuana bills clear committee in Lansing

LANSING (WKZO) -- A Michigan House committee approved three bills that more clearly defines how, where and in what form Medical marijuana can be ingested and obtained, giving local governments the power to regulate Marijuana Provisioning centers.

Rep. Mike Callton proposed the original legislation which has been greatly modified since.

He says it can take months for a medical marijuana patient to grow their own pot.  A provisioning center would permit them to begin treatment as soon as the doctor gives them the prescription. 

He says they told him he was crazy for even getting involved in the issue, but he says its coming to fruition.

Another bill lays out standards for alternative ways of ingesting marijuana including brownies, oils and other Products.

The Third bill would permit the sale of prescription grade marijuana at pharmacies, if the Federal Government ever reclassifies marijuana for medicinal use.

It now heads for the House floor but may have to wait until next year to be taken up.
