MI Court Rules Baked Goods Are Not Usable Marijuana

LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan's Court of Appeals has ruled that baked goods and other food containing marijuana's active ingredient aren't considered "usable marijuana" under state law unless they contain plant material.

MLive.com reports the ruling released Friday, however, says registered medical marijuana patients who possess THC-laced foods may still be able to claim immunity from prosecution under a section of Michigan's medical marijuana law.

Michigan voters approved marijuana for some chronic medical conditions in 2008.

The ruling comes in a case centering on a Jan. 27, 2011 traffic stop in Oakland County where the motorist was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver. He was later convicted and sentenced to 33 days in jail and three years of probation.
