LANSING (WKZO) -- The Michigan Supreme Court has overturned an appeals court ruling regarding driving while under the influence of medical marijuana.
The ruling is made in connection with a northern Michigan man who was charged with driving under the influence of pot three years ago. The man had been pulled over for speeding and admitted that he'd smoked marijuana a few hours before. He told the officer that he smoked medicinally and he had a valid medical marijuana card.
The Supreme Court has ruled that medical marijuana patients cannot be prosecuted for driving while the drug is in their system.
