Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Ruled Illegal in Michigan
A three-judge panel of the Michigan Court of Appeals has ruled that medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal, mlive.com reports. In 2008 voters approved Proposal 1, which allows people with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other conditions to cultivate, possess and use cannabis without fear of prosecution under state law—however, the law doesn’t allow for selling marijuana.

The law allows a caregiver to personally grow up to 72 plants and provide for five other patients.
