Massively populated with deer, birds, and other wild animals, the state of Michigan has become a popular area for hunters to hone their skills. Ironically, in 2008, the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA) was enacted, allowing people to use marijuana for medicinal purposes only. However, under the laws governing the MMMA, people given the right to smoke marijuana are not permitted to purchase guns for hunting, target shooting or even for personal protection.
The Michigan State Appeals Court has ruled that those granted use of marijuana for medicinal purposes remain classified as “drug users” or “drug addicts”, barring them from purchasing a gun and ammunition, regardless of the permission given to them to use marijuana for medicine reasons. This is a big blow to the medical marijuana community since it treats those carrying an MMMA card as criminals regardless if a criminal act was committed or not.
