  • People v Koon
    In People v. Koon, No. 145259, decided May 21, 2013, the Michigan Supreme Court reversed the Michigan Court of Appeals and reinstated the judgment of the Grand Traverse Circuit Court, and remanded the case to the district court for further proceedings. The Michigan Supreme Court ruled that "The immunity from prosecution provided under the MMMA to a registered patient who drives with indications of marijuana in his or her system but is not otherwise under the influence of marijuana inescapably conflicts with MCL 257.625(8), which prohibits a person from driving with any amount of marijuana in her or system. Under the MMMA, all other acts and parts of acts inconsistent with the MMMA do not apply to the medical use of marijuana. Consequently, MCL 257.625(8) does not apply to the medical use of marijuana." Therefore the Michigan Court held that the "Court of Appeals incorrectly concluded that defendant could be convicted under MCL 257.625(8) without proof that he had acted in violation of the MMMA by operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana." A copy of the decision is attached for your review.
