  •  The context in which we began this thread (0+ / 0-)

    was a post-prohibition environment.

    One of the few tweaks we made from the michigan law in the Wisconsin bill was in allowing patients to opt to grow their plants outdoors.

    Michigan's does not allow dispensaries. we kicked that can down the road, in authorising the State Dept. of Health and Family Services to create a model for dispensaries, while the initial implementation, like Michigan, calls for the patient or their designated caregiver to grow 12 plants at a time, of which 3 are mature. Those regs tilt towards indoor, at least foer most of the year.

    (Caregivers are limited to supplying 5 patients at a time.)

    I'm not crazy about these limits. Our sponsor wanted to stick lose to the Michigan model so that he could argue to colleagues that 'voters in a District with demographics much like yours approved it by x%.' Also, that 'This won't be like California,' since your model, rightly or wrongly, has been painted out here as 'anything goes.'
