old minutes, random stuff found while googling:

There are three new marihuana entities associated with the distribution of medical
marihuana that have opened up in the Mid-Michigan area. The department has no
authority to regulate these entities. An investigator can go into the business and
complete a fact-finding visit, but has no authority to conduct a formal investigation. The
department is meeting with the Attorney General’s office to discuss physicians who are
signing certifications without having a bona fide relationship with the patients.

It was also noted that there is a bill in the Senate that includes two proposed changes:
1) changing medical marihuana from a schedule 1 controlled substance to a schedule 2
which would allow marihuana to be prescribed by a physician and dispensed by a
pharmacy; and 2) allows 10 regulated growing facilities in the state of Michigan.

The review panel for the Medical Marihuana Program consists of seven ACPSM
members, physicians, advocacy groups or physicians who support the use of
marihuana for the treatment of pain.
Dr. Greg Holzman, Chief Medical Executive for the
Michigan Department of Community Health, will be the Chairperson, and Rae Ramsdell
will staff the panel.

I would recommend being organized, thorough, scientific, information packed and extensively documented.

People shouldn;t just haphazard these petitions.

Contact me if you want to put together small groups to specialize in specific conditions and pool research and resources to submit the most top notch petitions.

This must be done.

I have about 1200 cannabinoid/endocannaboid peer-reviewed journal articles archived. Tell me the condition and I will come back with a list of articles/url links. I've basically been creating the archive for this very purpose or in case someone I know with a condition ended up in court. I rarely login as I am very very busy so I prefer to work through this thread or another more specific thread if you choose, and will keep my posts to a minimum by editing condition-specific posts with addendum material instead of generating new posts.

Thanks for all the work you have done for us all
IMHO adding new conditions has been on my list and the MMMA for a long time
We just think that it's putting the cart be for the horse
Because you still can't use any thing in Court

so whats the plan ?

submit a petition for every known ailment that can be helped by marijuana?
otherwise they wont add new ailments because 'they didnt get a petition for that ailment' ?

start with other states allowed ailments? start with ptsd? anxiety? insomnia?

anxiety I think that would cover the hole State
and then you could ask for more plants because if you get raided and like us completely Legal you may have a good case as to why you had over 12

california allows medical marijuana for anything that marijuana alleviates.

maybe we should just focus on that?

why add one or two or three or three dozen stupidly specific diseases when it would be simpler to add a catch-all?
i'd hate to focus attention on ptsd, anxiety, insomnia etc when theres some oddly specific medical condition that we forgot or overlooked , thus depriving those patients relief.

Definitions:
a (3) Any other medical condition or its treatment approved by the department, as provided for in section 5(a).
sec 5a:
the department shall consider the addition of medical conditions or treatments to the list of debilitating medical conditions set forth in section 3(a) of this act.


would also save time, money and resources for LARA and petition process, hearing process, court challenges, etc.

T-pain, this may come as a surprise to you but this is Michigan, not California. Their law has less than zero to do with ours. Savvy.

I am sure they will see a lot of our scrubbed and shining faces. Credentials will carry weight. Wearing a lab coat to these pow wows; not so much, but priceless anyhow.
