Medical marijuana supporters rally in Lansing
Several thousand medical marijuana patients and their supporters rallied at the state Capitol today.
The state Court of Appeals recently ruled that medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal under Michigan law.
Patient advocate Joe Cain says the courts and state officials are working to undermine the state constitutional amendment allowing medical marijuana.
"They don't care about you," said Cain. "They don't care or they would have had a plan, because you don’t take sick people’s medicine away."
Cain says the state Court of Appeals decision was politically motivated.
"The objective was to deny people safe access to their medicine. This was not a judicial decision. This was a political decision," said Cain.
The Michigan Supreme Court will soon consider several medical marijuana cases. The court's decision in those cases is expected to go a long way to determining the scope of Michigan's medical marijuana law.
