Applicability of the MMMA In Multi-Family Housing Facilities
Randall Pentiuk

In 2008, the Michigan legislature enacted the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA), which legalized the use of medical marijuana in the State of Michigan.¹ Specifically, Michigan residents who obtain a valid medical marijuana identification card are permitted to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana and/or 12 live marijuana plants.²

Numerous other states have enacted similar measures regarding medical marijuana, and some states have gone so far as to legalize marijuana for general recreational use.

However, despite the recent development in this area of law, legislative change has been limited to the laboratory of state legislatures. As it pertains to the federal government, marijuana remains a Schedule I controlled substance with “no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.” ³ Naturally, there is some conflict in this corner of the legal world; numerous states have chosen to legalize marijuana in various contexts despite the federal government’s steadfast identification of the drug as a Schedule I controlled substance.

The director knows that things in a cooperative don't "just happen". He/She knows that conducting a cooperatives business may involved up to a million dollars a year, and several times that in total assets. It involves the lives of hundreds of people who live there, and many others whose earnings depend on the cooperative.

So where do we start? What do we do?
