A Michigan appeals court judge is sounding an alarm over the state's medical-marijuana law and urging lawmakers and officials to do something to clarify it.
Judge Peter O'Connell says the law is so confusing that marijuana users "who proceed without due caution" could "lose both their property and their liberty."
O'Connell released a 30-page opinion Wednesday in a medical-marijuana case from Oakland County. He says the law was "inartfully drafted" and some portions clash with other Michigan laws.
The judge says there's a need for rules for doctors, people who want to use marijuana and clinics that want to dispense it. O'Connell says "no decision is ... a decision to do nothing."
Medical marijuana was approved by voters in 2008.
