Sticky Notes Could End Prosecution In Medical Marijuana Case

CBS Detroit

HOLLY (AP) – Sticky notes could save a woman from drug charges in Oakland County.

In a 4-3 decision, the Michigan Supreme Court says sticky notes indicating dates of marijuana harvest qualify as legal paraphernalia. The court says that gives immunity to Cynthia Mazur of Holly because her husband was registered to use medical marijuana.

Justice Richard Bernstein wrote the majority opinion. The case now goes back to Oakland County court for more work.

In a dissent, Justice Stephen Markman says sticky notes weren’t used to grow or prepare marijuana and can’t be defined as paraphernalia. Justice Brian Zahra wrote a separate dissent Thursday, joined by Chief Justice Robert Young Jr.
