I was trying to get my head around what exactly a co-op is and how it could work in Michigan. Under proposal 1 which goes into effect in April, only a care giver can sell to his or her registered patient. All other marijuana sales are still illegal. For example: if the police raided a dealer's house while a patient was filling his prescription, the patient would be in legal possession and the dealer would be arrested. Even if you choose to wait until you have a prescription to start growing you have no legal means to start the process - to get seeds or clones or dried cannabis which you can legally poses. It's really set up to feed the black market....but I digress. Does a co-op allow you to trade seeds and clones and bud, but pay some sort of fee to the co-op?
