The court agreed Wednesday with a Barry County judge who had dismissed charges against Tony Green.
It’s the first decision by the appeals court in a case involving marijuana that changed hands without money.
There is no dispute that Green provided less than 2 ½ ounces of marijuana to Al Thornton in Nashville, Mich., in September 2011. Both were qualified to use medical marijuana.
The Supreme Court heard arguments last fall in a case involving cash sales of marijuana. A decision is pending.
The appeals court in 2011 said such sales are illegal.
