Bills before the Michigan Legislature are looking to change regulations for medical marijuana caregivers, limiting how much marijuana they could grow. Some customers are boycotting the major cannabis producers that back the legislation, which would lower the number of cannabis plants a caregiver may grow from 72 to 24. Casey Kornoelje, the founder of Grand Rapids-based cannabis provisioner Farmhouse Wellness, opposes the legislation. “For me, it would potentially cut the amount of cannabis that I could provide to my wife,” who has Crohn’s disease and for whom Kornoelje serves as a caregiver, he said. While he now sells medical and recreational marijuana at his store, he started as a caregiver, growing plants at home and providing them directly to patients for medical use. “You’re probably not harvesting 72 plants all in one shot. In order for these caregivers to provide a consistent flow of cannabis for their patients, most likely they’re breaking that down into different segments — some in the early seedling stage, some in the vegetive stage and then some in the flowering stage.
