Feds Can’t Sanction Docs For Recommending Pot, Ninth Circuit Court Of Appeals Rules Government Threats Violate Free Speech, Exceed Congressional Authority, Court Says!
Currently we are awaiting the passage of the new bills in the Senate in hopes that the governor will sign them. Although there are many problems with the bills, many people want them to pass to free up the system so that concentrated forms of medicine can be manufactured and given to the patients and free up the caregivers to have an outlet for their overages at a dispensary so they can pay their bills.
The other reason is that it has taken two years to get these bills where they are and many people feel it will take too long to work them through the system again. I feel a bad bill is a bad bill and it shouldn’t be passed. One of the main reasons why is the time it takes to get changes done. It’s taken two years for the legislature to get to this point and the law is written like they didn’t even consider patients? Never even consulted with any?
Although many parts of the bill still rely on the local municipality to allow dispensaries, testing centers and even the transfer of meds between the previous mentioned, which is unacceptable., Many patient will be in the same boat they are now, either not being able to get medical grade marijuana or having to drive 20 miles or more to get it! What kind of compassion is that? If these bills pass as is many of us will have to file suit for permits or licensing in the cities that still want to ban dispensaries and testing centers.
I personally am tired of being fought on something that is legal in the state by the municipalities, Just because they have been against it and wasted their time fighting it instead of promulgating rules and regulation as required in the original law passed 8 years ago! Court decision after court decision falls for the patient and the law. Ever since I became a patient and a caregiver, I have fallowed the law as best as possible with the State Attorney General continually trying to rewrite it himself. The original law is pretty clear although they would like you to believe it isn’t. I have put myself and my life on the line for my patients and will continue to do so as long as I am able and can afford too!
Vote Bill Shuttee out of office as State Attorney General, I don’t care if you write in a donkey!
Other than that make sure you vote the idiots out that have been fighting us all the way! Get informed and get out and vote!!!
I had to be in court on June 19th 2012. I showed up early and found where I was supposed to be and I went into judge Graves office and to make sure asked the receptionist if I was in the right place. She asked what the case was and I told her Miller Vs Norton Shores and she told me they had dropped the case.
Previously in July of 2011 the city was successful in getting the judge to sign an injunction to close my business down as a nu sense to the community. I personally went around to the neighboring businesses and spoke with them and my other neighbors. None of them seemed to have a problem with us running this business out of this location and I gave their numbers to my lawyer and told him I wanted to fight to keep my business and my future alive. The last meeting I had before court I was discussing the case with my lawyer and he said we can fight but it’s a hard case since it is the city filing the complaint! Anyway, I told him that the legislature was currently introducing bills to legalize and regulate dispensaries and the State Supreme Court was going to decide the case that closed all the dispensaries down in August of 2011. I asked him why would the judge want to rule on a case that was being decided by the state supreme court in a mater of weeks and possibly overturn his decision? He said good point so we notified the court and the lawyers office that works for Norton Shores and they decided to drop the case for now with the ability to reopen it and recharge me in the future.

Latest Update 6-28-2013
I left this info off the site until the case was settled. I feel this case is about to be dropped. What a waist of money! The city of Norton Shores decided to sue my home based computer repair as a nu sense to the community. That started earlier this year or the very end of last year! Anyway, the city made three complaints against me in the injunction. They said I had more than 3 customers a day, which violated one of the home based business ordinances. Item 2 was about my workshop in the back room being more than 25% of my home, home based business ordinance in Norton Shores says that your home based business cannot take up more that 25% of the home and number 3 was the ordinance that says, you cannot operate a business out of a home, if you have to make improvements to the home for the business to operate.
I have been pulling permits on my home to bring it up to code. As my home or a rental, it needs to be up to code. The city of Norton Shores has issued these permits on that basis. I have had all work inspected and approved by inspectors. Because my home is on a commercial lot, I have gone beyond residential codes and brought all work up to commercial level so at some point I could lease out my property as commercial. In April, all work was stopped by the inspection department because the lawyer from Norton Shores wanted to come in and see my home before any other inspections could be done. Last month I had the City Planner, Fire department, police, lawyer, building inspector, electrical inspector and people I didn’t even know what they were there for from Norton Shores. Anyway, I got wrote up for a couple minor issues like a handrail, a GFI and a couple other minor issues. They counted all my plants and I even had to explain to the officer some of the medical marijuana laws, since he didn’t seem to be too up on them. Isn’t it funny that law enforcement can enforce the law without treading it??? Anyway, we counted all the plants and I had to explain what clones were and it just seamed this young officer had no clue, every time we went over anything he had to call WEMET to verify the info I was telling him was accurate. While we were down in the basement some of the others were poking around my cabinets and in my refrigerator. They pulled some fudge out that I have for my patients in the freezer and were so happy to see that each package had 5 grams on them, what they failed to realize is that it said 5 grams of butter in every package so I had to explain to them that THC content and butter content were totally different things. While we were outside inspecting the yard, they saw my small grow cage and asked if I used it last year and if was going to use it this year and I said yes.
Well low and behold, Finally my lawyer gets a letter from Norton Shores Planning department on how I may be able to operate my computer repair out of the house but my plants that I grow for my patients cannot be outside. I guess the city planner hasn’t read the law either? I instructed my lawyer to respond with the excerpt of the law that says I can grow outside and how, then I explained my security features and if they want to go to court over it I have no problem! I also told my lawyer that if they do anything else I am going to sue them for harassment, violation of my civil rights and probably a thing or two more! I am really tired of these hypocritical bureaucrats who think they speak for the people. They are supposed to be working for us!
The court case was dropped by Norton Shores July 10th, two days before trial.
More to Come…
