In 2008, voters in the State of Michigan, approved the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act by a 63% margin. Since then over 100,000 Michiganders have entered the program. Since that time hundreds of innocent patients and caregivers have been persecuted by police and prosecutors. Some have been throw in prison because they were a test case for Bill Schuette. Others have had their property seized without due process. Now the legislature is seeking to expand the power of law enforcement. They have created legislation that will cause patients to be arrested for simply following the will of the people. These lawmakers are playing politics with the health and safety of the sick and dying. Please allow friends and family to continue to care for the sick. The People of The State of Michigan demand that you honor the will of the people.
