Michigan Marihuana Caregiver Qualifications
Here in the State of Michigan there are certain requirements and criminal charges that can and will extend from specific violations of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (aka MMMA). Legislation found in the MMMA that became effective April 1, 2013 chances the landscape the individuals under the MMMA, specifically MMMA caregivers.
One of the biggest and having the most impact on the MMMA caregivers (and the MMMA community in general) has be the change in the definition of the term caregiver. In essence the change in the MMMA caregiver definition made those who currently have felony convictions on their records unable to obtain such a certification or license to be a caregiver. This means fewer individual will be unable to become MMMA caregivers.
This limit or restriction only applies to the past ten (10) years. However, the new definition does require an individual to remain free of felony drug convictions and assaultive convictions for their lifetime, or in other words the 10-year rule does not apply if an individual has been convicted of such a crime. Therefore, a MMMA caregiver must not only be 21 years or older but maintain a criminal record free of felonies within the last 10 years, unless it is a drug or assaultive conviction as designated by the MMMA.
This is important information for those individual who want to become MMMA caregivers. These and other new amendments can and will affect the medical marijuana community. Make sure you know what you can and cannot due with your certification to use marijuana. It could keep you out of jail and allowing you to continue to blow smoke.
