Groups searching for loopholes to get legal pot in MI

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — As marijuana fans wait for the day when marijuana can be legally bought and sold – a day as long as a year away – some are trying to find loopholes in the recently passed Proposal 1 that will allow them to get their weed now.

But some enterprising individuals are trying to use that provision to generate another kind of green. 

“It’s pretty clear, giving away or otherwise transferring without remuneration – without compensation – up to 2.5 ounces to a person who is 21 years or older is authorized as long as the transference is not advertised or promoted to the public,” said Robert Hendricks, a business attorney specializing in marijuana law and one of the drafters of Proposal 1.

But while the proposal clearly states that marijuana cannot be legally sold until the state sets up the licensing and regulation over the next few months, some are wondering if they can use the old trick of selling something other than marijuana and then including the weed as a "gift.”
