This Thursday the Michigan House Judiciary Committee is planning a hearing on proposals that supporters say would clarify the state’s voter-approved law allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
There will be a couple different proposals expected to be brought up at the hearing. One of the proposals is targeted to better define the what kind of relationship between a doctor and patient would be needed before medical marijuana use could be certified. The other proposal would detail requirements for photographs to be included on identification cards that people certified to use medical marijuana must carry.
Bill Schuette, the Republican Attorney General, said changes are needed to the 2008 law. Medical marijuana advocates say the proposed changes might make the drug harder to get. Even if it is harder to get, at least there will be some more clarification for the confusing laws of medical marijuana.
