Eastern Michigan University Joins Other Schools in Banning Medical Marijuana


YPSILANTI (WKZO) -- Eastern Michigan University has joined several other Michigan universities in the banning of medical marijuana on campus.  While state laws allow for those with medical marijuana cards to smoke the drug, it is still illegal under federal law.

According to EMU officials, because the institution receives federal funds, it is necessary for them to ban the drug.  EMU regents unanimously approved the measure during their board meeting Tuesday.

Eastern Michigan joins the University of Michigan, Oakland University and Michigan State University in banning medical marijuana on campus.
