Sen. Jones pleased with Michigan Supreme Court ruling on medical marijuana dispensaries

LANSING— The Michigan Supreme Court ruled on Friday that individuals with a medical marijuana card must get their medical marijuana from a registered caregiver.

Sen Jones offered the following statement:

“The original intent of this was to provide medical marijuana to the very ill, not to have dispensaries opening up across Michigan. People were concerned that dispensaries were being opened close to schools and churches where rehabilitation meetings were being held.

“Hopefully this ruling by the court will put an end to this debate and the practice of selling marijuana over the counter like it is a common, everyday item.”
