    In 2008, Michigan voters passed the Medical Marijuana law into effect. This law states that certain patients with certain chronic diseases will have the ability to carry around a limited source of marijuana and use it for medical purposes only. Two years after the law was passed, many people are abiding under its rules, but others are not. There have been cases in which normal people without a license to purchase or carry marijuana have been able to get their hands on it.

    . In Ferndale, a court hearing recently took place in which people associated with a medical marijuana dispensary were arrested. These people are being accused of selling medical marijuana to a "patient" that had a forged buyer's card. The "patient" was an undercover Ferndale police officer and did not have a valid license to purchase marijuana. The dispensary allowed the police officer to purchase the medical marijuana. Their excuse: the Department of Community Health keeps the issuing of the licenses private, they had no way to know whether or not it was actually legal.

    This is not the only case around the state that has gone on this way. Other dispensaries have also been raided, leading to other arrests. Defendants' lawyers all around are saying that their clients did nothing wrong. All they did, lawyers are arguing, was what they are there to do: sell marijuana to patients that need it.

    Either way a court case works out, one thing is for sure. The Medical Marijuana law is extremely unclear. There are many loopholes around legally obtaining a license, even though there are many precautionary steps taken to prevent this. Marijuana has been used throughout the past, all through the world. Michigan has decided to make it legal for some citizens, but others who do not fall under these categories have taken advantage of this law. Some patients who actually need the medical marijuana may now not be able to get it.
