State Rep Looking for Way Around Marijuana Ruling

A Michigan lawmaker plans to quickly introduce a bill to legalize medical-marijuana shops after the state Supreme Court said they're not allowed under a 2008 law.
Republican Rep. Mike Callton of Nashville says he's concerned cancer patients and others won't have access to the drug without dispensaries.
He says many of the state's 125,000 medical-marijuana users can't grow their own and there aren't enough caregivers to grow it for them. Callton says patients will be forced to go underground to find pot.
A similar bill went nowhere last year, but Callton says the issue is more urgent after the Supreme Court decision Friday.
Michigan voters approved marijuana for medical purposes in 2008.

    It's a dam shame that our state courts are willing to set aside the will of the people. I may be time to set them aside.
