People Rally Against Supreme Court Pot Ruling


JACKSON, Mich. (WLNS) - Last month, a Michigan Supreme Court judge ruled that pot dispensaries are illegal. The Jackson County prosecutor's office ordered 18 marijuana dispensaries in the county to shut down.

More than 100 people came out to rally against the decision on Friday.

"Marijuana dispensaries or businesses can't be dispensing or giving our marijuana to people. That's the law. And as a prosecutor, I take an oath, and it's my duty and obligation to follow the law," said Jackson County prosecutor Jerry Jarzynka. "The Supreme Court decision left in tact the area under the act where a provider or caregiver can give medical marijuana to a user or patient."

Officials say there is a possiblity that the supreme court's ruling could be amended to allow for dispensaries, however, there is no word on when that could happen.
