Michigan Medical Pot Law Ruled Illegal

A suburban Detroit judge says Michigan's medical-marijuana law is illegal and is trumped by federal anti-drug laws.

Dearborn District Judge Mark Somers ruled in March in a case involving a man who was caught with pot before he received a medical-marijuana card. Robert Brandon unsuccessfully tried to have his case dismissed.

Somers is one of three judges in Dearborn. His decision isn't binding on them or judges elsewhere in Michigan. But anyone appearing in Somers' court and arguing a medical-marijuana defense will lose.

He says Michigan can't allow the legal use of marijuana when Congress has made it illegal. Voters approved the law in 2008.
