Medical Marijuana Home Delivery under Consideration in Michigan

Under a proposed set of rules Michigan officials are considering, medical marijuana patients could soon have their medicine delivered to their homes. Home delivery of medical marijuana has only been possible in Michigan if a patient had a relationship with a caregiver.

Under these new rules, provisioning centers could send out an employee to deliver products to patients directly in a transaction as simple as ordering a pizza or Chinese food. Marijuana home deliveries are allowed in Oregon, California and Nevada — though their programs are not all universal. Colorado, Washington, Alaska and Washington D.C. do not allow for home delivery. Under the proposed rules in Michigan, medical patients could order online and pay online for home deliveries. According to the proposed rules, provisioning centers would be allowed to staff one person to make home deliveries, who could only deliver to three patients at a time The provisioning center would have to be able to track the delivery’s GPS location at all times during the delivery, and logs would have to be kept. Deliveries would only be allowed to the home address of the patient.

Medical patients living in a city or township that has banned medical marijuana businesses from operating could receive deliveries from provisioning centers, said David Harns, spokesman for the state’s Bureau of Medical Marijuana Regulation. Medical marijuana businesses have been operating under emergency rules this year, and the state is now moving to adopt permanent rules. A hearing on the permanent rules is set for Sept. 17.

Medical marijuana businesses that have been temporarily operating in Michigan under the emergency rules have until Sept. 15 to obtain a state license. After that date, any operating business without a license will be sent a cease and desist letter beginning Sept. 17. To date, the state licensing board has approved 16 licenses — but critics don’t believe the industry will be up and running by Sept. 15.

From a former client

"First thing I want to tell is that I thank God for giving me the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person like you and without question, the best lawyer in this world. I am very grateful for everything you did for me. I want to let you know that I'm doing good and if you ever think of coming to . . . for vacation don't forget to contact me. Thanks again Mr. Luciano and please say hello to that kind lady that answers the phone with pleasure every time I called."

From a former client with a First Degree Distribution Charge

"In my distraction focusing on my . . . trial, I failed to ask you how things went with . . . I watched and learned from you throughout that case and greatly admire the consummsate attorney that I hoped to emulate. I witnessed how very hard you worked and how you left no stone unturned. I hope the case worked out for you and your clients. If it did not (and I hope it did) it was not for lack of the effect on your part which was humbling."

From an adversary in a case where we ultimately returned a verdict of $2,069,000

"My family and I would like to thank you for all of your hard work on my case. I feel like I can live my life normally again and it feels awesome. You are truly a professional and wonderful attorney."

From a former client charged with a serious weapons offense

"At the time, I was mortified because, having only worked against you in the Prosecutor’s Office, I couldn’t picture being on the same side. Frank, I want to thank you for the pleasure of having worked with you over the past years. I have learned a great deal from you. Most importantly, I learned that cases were not always as black and white as I thought they were when I worked for the Prosecutor’s Office. You are a wonderful attorney who not only works hard, but also cares deeply about his clients. Frank, I think you are the best."
