The report goes on to say
The decision comes after two men who were charged with distributing medical marijuana appealed the plea deals they had reached, local broadcaster WOOD TV reported.
Michigan’s voter-approved medical cannabis law doesn’t say anything about dispensaries. So up until now different counties in Michigan have treated dispensaries in different ways.
In some counties, police have raided and shut dispensaries. In others, police have let dispensaries operate pending guidance from lawmakers or the courts. Earlier this month, city councilors in the state capital of Lansing passed a moratorium on new dispensaries, but allowed existing medical marijuana businesses to continue operating.
The men at the center of the Michigan Court of Appeals ruling can take their case to the state supreme court. But observers say their chances of winning are slim, WOOD reported.
