The FBI says a Michigan restaurant owner was willing to pay bribes to suburban Detroit officials to try to get them to allow him to open a medical marijuana dispensary.
The FBI says the restaurant owner told the Garden City official that he would pay $150,000 if he could get a permit for a medical marijuana dispensary. The official said the man would need approval from the city council.
The FBI says the man in December handed the official an envelope with $15,000, apparently $5,000 apiece for three council members. The official gave the envelope to the FBI.
