Now that – for the time being – medical marijuana dispensary sales are illegal in the state of Michigan, what’s next for patients?

Well, for those who grow their own and never dealt with dispensaries, nothing will change. But what about patients with neither the time nor inclination to grow? What about those who are simply too sick to grow their medicine?

In short: drug dealers. If you aren’t lucky enough to have friends with supply and you can’t grow, you either get it from a drug dealer or go without. We hear a lot of talk about health care in this country, but what kind of message are we sending to sick people when we send them to some back alley to get their medicine?
