Michigan Marihuana Program
Under Michigan medical marijuana law, medical marijuana patients must register with the Michigan Medical Marihuana Program (MMMP) to obtain a Medical Marihuana Registry Identification Card, also referred to as medical marijuana card, cannabis card or medical pot card. The MMMP contends that only a person with a qualifying debilitating medical condition who has obtained a valid MMMP registry card is exempt from criminal laws of the state for engaging in the medical use of marijuana.
