Medical or medicinal marijuana is marijuana that is used for medical purposes. Marijuana is defined, under Michigan law, as any part of the plant Cannabis Sativa L. including seeds and stalks. Technically, there is no chemical difference between illegal marijuana and medical marijuana. Illegal marijuana becomes medical marijuana if it is used for a legal medical purpose under the law.

Each state has its own requirements for what constitutes the legal use of marijuana for medical purposes. You can go to Michigan’s Department of Community Health website for general information on Michigan’s Medical Marijuana Program.
