Legal team offering medical marijuana help in Grand Haven

A duo of Ottawa County legal experts are hoping to shed some light on the state's new medical marijuana laws with a new legal visitor center in downtown Grand Haven. "Right now, if someone wants to come out from underground, they don't know where to go,' paralegal Susan Bradley said of the endeavor, Grand Haven Legal PLLC. Bradley said what her and attorney Randall Collins don't know, they have a network of people they'll refer clients to.

The center’s help aspects include getting certified, how to distribute the medicine, how to dispose of medicine and other legal resources related to medical marijuana.

The biggest hurdle for people, Bradley said, is a lack of information — since laws are so new. She also said there is a lot of misconceptions from people.

“A lot of people call it a ‘gateway’ drug, but it swings both ways,” she said, referencing the fact that patients use the drug to get off harder pain medication.

Collins said that the office also isn’t doing any activity such as dispensing medicine to patients or performing illegal activity.

If marijuana is truly medicine, being used medicinally, why do "patients" need attorneys to access it? Aren't physicians allowed to prescribe it and pharmacists (or dispensaries) allowed to supply medically necessary medicines?

The medical marijuana movement, while evidently valuable to legitimately ill patients, seems to have been more a victory for carte blanche marijuana legalization a'la NORML. If it's a valid medicine (I and a majority of this state's voters believe it is) let the medical community handle the distribution. Getting the tilecrawlers into the game reeks of exploiting loopholes and intimidating physicians into prescribing cannabis against their better judgment.

This does not bode well for medical MJ's public image. Attorneys are going to suck the last bit of fire left, raise a big stink defining "medically necessary" and leave the legitimate patients roached. What the electorate have given, the electorate can take away.

posting a 12 in pot leaf on your door clears up medical marijuana misconceptions about as well as a picture of a dead baby on the door of an abortion clinic.
real class act that posts in a public area in large letters, applications for minors.
clearing up misconceptions will go far with leaving their "custom pot baggies" on a table for any child to get.
real class act.
i'm not sure how many people who actually "need" the medical marijuana would want to be associated with a place that is more obsessed with having a pot leaf on EVERYTHING than using an ounce of class or discretion.

Dear Readers,

We are here for the compassionate care of the sick, disabled and dying. As mentioned above, we do provide Applications for individuals to be certified for Medical Marijuana as a legally prescribed medication. This includes applications for both Adults and Minors. This is provided for in the Medical Marijuana Act. The applications for minors are found on the State of Michigan website and anyone, even a minor, can download them. We do not assist minors unaccompanied by their parents. My last minor patient came in with both of her parents holding her as she walked and was certified by at least 2 doctors for Medical Marijuana because the pharmaceuticals did not work for her. She was mangled in a car accident and crippled. The medical bills become very extreme so what is one to do? Grow their own medicine.

Grand Haven Legal, P.L.C., as a legal practice, is duty bound to advise and help those who are in need of legal direction and help in understanding the labyrinth of the law; guiding them to the right pathways to reach their legal goal. That includes the legal right to apply to the State of Michigan to obtain a Medical Marijuana card.

Sincerely,

Randall L. Collins
Attorney at Law

There are several methods for administration of dosage, including vaporizing or smoking dried buds, drinking, or eating extracts, and taking capsules. The comparable efficiency of these methods was the subject of an investigative study conducted by the National Institutes of Health. Thanks.

Although still against federal law, the state initiative allows patients and their caregivers to possess and cultivate cannabis plants for their personal medical use with the recommendation of a doctor. The drug is used to treat a number of ailments and conditions, including chemotherapy side effects, multiple sclerosis and glaucoma. Thanks.

Dispensaries provide doctor approved patients with natural products to help their conditions. Even so, becoming a medical marijuana distributor remains a risky enterprise. Entrepreneurs must be extremely vigilant and cautious when opening a dispensary business. Thanks.

The study found that there was no noticeable difference of the tremors in the patients. Although there was no difference in the tremors the patients felt as if their symptoms had lessened and their quality of life had improved. Thanks.
