A bill in the Michigan Senate would ban marijuana bars and clubs that have opened since voters approved use of the drug for medical purposes in 2008.

The Republican-led Senate Health Policy Committee passed the bill Thursday. The legislation advances to the Senate floor.

The bill defines the clubs and bars as places where medical marijuana is used for a fee. Violations would be punishable by up to 90 days in jail with fines of up to $500.

Republican Sen. Rick Jones of Grand Ledge sponsors the bill and says people using medical marijuana shouldn’t be driving right after they use it.

Marijuana club owners say they provide a key service. There are pending court cases involving clubs that could set precedents for how they’re allowed to operate.

  1. “Republican Sen. Rick Jones of Grand Ledge sponsors the bill and says people using medical marijuana shouldn’t be driving right after they use it.”

    Does this also mean that alcohol bars will have to close because the same reason?

    Where did these so-called lawmakers go to school? Must have been the public[government] brain washing school system. Sorry Charlie, we only accept educated tunas.

  2. Dick Jones is an idiot. Start parking squad cars outside of Alcohol Bars as well………..that should go over like a lead balloon. This bill is so vague that it would eliminate Compassion Meeting Clubs as well. Cronies like him are always spouting safety……..keep our children safe. If he is serious….establish a level of cannabinoids in the system that is safe for driving. Just like the poisonous alcohol. Good Times IJ
