Feds Sue To Get Michigan Medical Marijuana User Records

The U.S. Attorney's office in Michigan is asking a federal judge to force the state's Department of Community Health to comply with a subpoena and turn over the medical marijuana records of 7 people under investigation by the DEA. Michigan law protects the confidentiality of those granted medical marijuana cards and makes disclosure a misdemeanor. The DEA subpoena seeks:

“copies of any and all documents, records, applications, payment method of any application for Medical Marijuana Patient Cards and Medical Marijuana Caregiver cards and copies of front and back of any cards located for the seven named individuals.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney John Bruha says:

a “state-created confidentiality provision … must yield to the enforcement power of the federal agency.”
