LANSING,  MI—On Tuesday, September 17th, a coalition of attorneys, parents, students and legislators will call on the State of Michigan to immediately recognize and adhere to the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act (The Act), and stop removing children from the homes of licensed medical marijuana caregivers and patients. At least three families who have been targeted by CPS will be speaking to media.
WHAT: Press conference and protest to address the removal of children from licensed medical marijuana caregivers and patients
WHERE: Department of Human Services, 235 S Grand Ave, Lansing, MI 48933
WHEN: Tuesday, September 17th, 12 Noon
WHO: State Rep. Jeff Irwin, Attorneys Thomas Lavigne and Joshua Covert, Steve and Maria Green and other families from across Michigan who have their children removed by CPS due to their status as a medical marijuana patient or caregiver.
The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act was passed with overwhelming support in 2008. Specific protections were written into that voter-initiated law to protect families from removing children from the homes of caregivers and patients who register with the State.
Five years after the enactment of our law, Michigan Child Protective Services  (CPS) continues to unjustly remove children from the homes of state sanctioned medical marijuana patients and caregivers.
Michigan Moms United Founder Charmie Gholson said, “Last Friday an Ingham county judge removed 6 month-old Bree Green from her loving parents, despite their status as state-sanctioned medical marijuana patients and caregivers.  This is just one of many, widespread incidents throughout Michigan involving CPS agencies that disregard the clearly written protections provided in the Act. Michigan Moms United calls on the State to immediately return this infant to her parents, and adhere to the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act.”

  1. aMy name is odis today they took my son out of my house because I have A medical marijuana card

  2. The wall is falling down, the stigma is dissolving. Reefer madness is dead. I don’t know if they remove kids from homes with vicodin or xanax, so it might as well be kidnapping by the CPS. I’m sure there are valid circumstances to this, and I’m sure some are invalid. They are in the minority, we voted and won. The state cashes my check everytime I renew my medical card, so if CPS wants to mess with my kids they will be in for a big surprise that goes bang. It may sound drastic but some sick people have a temper and have been through a lot to get here. I hope CPS workers read this because not everyone will lay down to them, especially when it comes to children. If they try this crap in Genesee county many patients and caregivers I know will fight back on the spot. Again, we voted and we won, leave us be. I am in a green zone with dispensaries, compassion clubs, and a community that is ahead of most. There is no going back, we are here for good. Patients need meds and not everyone can grow. We all get along and I know this from experience. The trouble starts when it doesn’t make sense anymore. A friend use to say “make it make sense.” I have pot and guns, and both are out of reach of my kids. A CPS worker better tell another about Genesee county, because if you pull in the wrong driveway you might catch some heat real fast. We are tired of being robbed of everything we own by so called officials, now they want our kids. Trust me, bullets will fly.

  3. Yes, very sad. One of my biggest fears. My kids treat MMJ just like any other adult medicine, hands off for you. If you asked them what Marijuana is, the answer would be “Medicine to help people.”
