JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - The Michigan Supreme Court clarified dispensaries are illegal under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. In Jackson County, the prosecutor's office has ordered 18 marijuana dispensaries in the county to shut down.
The owner of Canna Care in Blackman Township said he's disappointed he had to close the shop after receiving a Cease and Desist order from the Jackson County Prosecutor's Office.
"The decision is pretty clear. These businesses can't dispense marijuana," said Jerard Jarzynka, prosecuting attorney, Jackson County.
Other shops in the area, shut down operations too. The Jackson Narcotics Enforcement Team knows some may still be open.
"We are going to do them eventually, but we don't just want to jump right into it. We want to make sure we have everything right, that when we get them. We shut them down and we shut them down for good," said Lt. Dave Cook, an MSP Trooper with the Jackson Narcotics Enforcement Team.
The prosecutor's office says the law isn't saying medical marijuana patients can't use marijuana--just that they can't get it from a dispensary or transfer it from one registered patient to another.
"The decision doesn't eliminate the availability of medical marijuana for registered patients or care givers to grow for those patients," said Jarzynka.
Police say they are illegal and if they're not shut down, they will do so. Jarzynka promised, "Whenever police bring us a case, we will prosecute it."
If convicted, the prosecutor's office says medical marijuana dispensary owners could face up to four years in prison and/or a $20,000 fine.
Prosecutors haven't received any cases from police yet. However, they did recently raid two medical marijuana shops in the Jackson area.
