Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana

In 2008 the people of the state of Michigan approved by an overwhelming majority the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (MMMA). The MMMA provides relief from prosecution for those with a qualifying medical condition.

Despite the protections provided by the MMMA, the executive and judicial branches of government often ignore or misinterpret the MMMA.  This leaves many MMMA patients fearful of prosecution.  Patients remain confused by the different rulings issued by Michigan Courts.  Until the Michigan Supreme Court rules on these issues, patients will continue to be victims of erroneous MMMA interpretation.  

At the Nichols Law Firm, we are committed to defending the right to use Medical Marihuana.  We are familiar with the provisions of the MMMA and the different court rulings.  If you are a medical marihuana patient and have been charged with violating the MMMA or if you are being investigated by law enforcement don’t give up, the Nichols Law Firm can come to your defense.
