A Detroit-area judge has refused to allow a number of people arrested in raids last week to use medical marijuana while out on bond.

Waterford District Court Judge Richard Kuhn Jr. made the ruling Tuesday, drawing groans from a courtroom packed with the defendants, their lawyers and supporters.

The defendants were charged following the raids of a medical marijuana dispensary and a compassion club for patients.

They face felony charges that carry up to four years in prison. Most claim they use marijuana to alleviate serious illnesses and pain.

Before the hearings, dozens of people gathered in front of the courthouse to complain that their arrests were politically motivated by county authorities hostile to the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.

    Too liberal judges? Please explain how this judge, who refuses to allow these people relief from pain, is too liberal?

    It would be part of their parole.
