Michigan lawmakers have begun addressing the state’s often criticized medical marijuana law.  Voter approval of the statute in 2008 has been followed by years of legal confusion over its enforcement.  Last November, a State Court of Appeals ruling—People versus McQueen--led to the closure of many marijuana dispensaries and made the drug more difficult to obtain, even for cardholding patients.

The state House has approved the first amendments to Michigan’s medical marijuana law since it was approved by voters in 2008.
