LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - It has been a series of nightmares for one family who has been battling with Michigan since September 6 for the custody of their eight-month-old daughter, Bree.

Steve and Maria Green have been hoping to end that nightmare since it began when Bree was only six-months-old. Now, two months later, the family was reunited.

The couple lost custody of their daughter because of issues with medical marijuana use.

Judge Garcia of Ingham County Courts decided to grant Steve and Maria Green custody of their 8-month-old daughter, Bree.

The Green family's attorney believes the judge made the decision for two reasons. The first because Steve and Maria Green are legitimate medical marijuana patients operating within the law. The second because charges against them in an Oakland County court were dropped.

Steve and Maria Green are currently on a probationary period from now until the first week of January. Child Protective Services will be making regular visits to their home, which could include random drugs tests. If CPS conducts a drug test, Bree will also be tested. The couple may also be subject to parenting classes.   

If nothing else happens, there are no violations and all of the drug tests come back negative, Steve and Maria Green will have permanent custody of their child the first week of January 2014.
