GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court says he’s seen enough medical marijuana cases.

Robert Young Jr. tells The Grand Rapids Press (http://bit.ly/1rzVyG7 ) that the law approved by voters in 2008 is “no model of clarity” and says “it’s a mess.”

Young sums it up saying he’s “so sick of medical marijuana cases.”

He spoke to the newspaper Tuesday while in Grand Rapids for a judicial conference. Young says supporters of medical marijuana took parts of laws from other states when they drafted the Michigan ballot proposal.

Since the law’s passage, the state Supreme Court has interpreted it many times.

The court says pot shops are prohibited. It also says local governments can’t stop people from properly using medical marijuana.
