Court: Weight Of Marijuana-laced Food Can't Be Counted In Possession Law


Lansing-- The weight of brownies and other edibles laced with a marijuana extract cannot be counted toward total weight limits of cannabis possession under Michigan's medical marijuana law, according to a state Court of Appeals ruling released Friday.

In the first ruling of its kind, a three-judge panel concluded edibles containing THC extracts from marijuana resin is not "usable marijuana" as defined by the 2008 voter-approved act because it cannot be weighed like dry buds from the plant.
