    Let It Rip: Pot parents and working for welfare

    The state is removing children from homes where medical marijuana is being grown and used. Also, should welfare recipients be required to perform community service as a condition of their benefits?
    The state is removing children from homes where medical marijuana is being grown and used.  A legitimate reason and concern?  Or is Child Protective Services out of bounds?  
    Also, should welfare recipients be required to perform community service as a condition of their benefits?
(WJBK) -

Attorneys for Steve and Maria Green say their 7-month-old daughter, Bree, could be coming home soon as charges against them are being dropped.
    
Child Protective Services took the baby more than a month ago after learning the parents had a license to grow medical marijuana.
 
At the time a state referee said the family's Lansing home was dangerous because the couple grow and use medical marijuana in front of Bree and an older sibling.

The couple argued they legally grow the drug to treat Steve's epilepsy and Maria's multiple sclerosis.

Maria joined a recent Let It Rip panel here on Fox 2 and admitted to having used the drug in the past to treat her multiple sclerosis, but that she has not smoked it since getting pregnant and giving birth to Bree.

Now charges that they violated the state's medical marijuana act are being dropped.  

The Green's must agree to in-home visits and parenting classes, but they say Bree could be home as early as this week.

A judge will review the case in 30-days.
