MI Supreme Court Will Hear Arguments for Medical Marijuana Case


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The Michigan Supreme Court said Thursday that it will hear arguments in a case seeking to strike down the City of Wyoming's ordinance that bans medical marijuana because it directly violates the state's Medical Marijuana Act.

The ordinance was adopted by the Wyoming City Council in 2010. While it does not specifically mention medical marijuana, it prohibits any violations of federal law.

Because medical marijuana is still technically illegal under federal law, the city used this terminology to ban medical marijuana.
