Can I transport marijuana plants in my vehicle?

If you lawfully can possess marijuana plants according to the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act, then under state law* you can transport marijuana plants in your vehicle if two requirements are met:

(1)The vehicle is being used temporarily to transport living marihuana plants from 1 location to another with the intent to permanently retain those plants at the second location.

(2) An individual is not inside the vehicle unless he or she is either the registered qualifying patient to whom the living marihuana plants belong or the individual designated through the departmental registration process as the primary caregiver for the registered qualifying patient.


*Engaging in marijuana-related activities is still federally illegal despite the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The act does not provide a defense to federal charges.
