LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Supreme Court says it will decide whether people permitted to use medical marijuana can sell it to others who also have cards.
The court said Wednesday it will review a major appeals court decision from last year that declared such sales illegal, especially through dispensaries. Authorities in many counties have used that ruling to shut down the shops. But in some areas, police and prosecutors have declined to intervene.
The Supreme Court case involves a dispensary in Mount Pleasant that allowed its members to sell marijuana to each other, with the owners taking as much as a 20 percent cut. The appeals court said the 2008 medical marijuana law does not permit dispensaries. The shop was shut down as a public nuisance.
