Over 100 Gather for Medical Marijuana Protest


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Over 100 medical marijuana patients, caregivers and supporters protested at the state capitol Tuesday afternoon.

The group says the state is persecuting patients and discounting the people's vote when it comes to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.

The National Medical Marijuana Coalition says the Supreme Court's latest decision to shut down medical marijuana dispensaries was taking measures too far.

"What the supreme court essentially said was, patient, you're protected, but anybody that helps you isn't, they can go to jail every time. Who's going to participate in a program like that," said Joe Cain, the National Medical Marijuana Coalition chief executive officer.
