Michigan state police and FBI agents raided three medical marijuana dispensaries in the state capital belonging to a local dispensary business, the latest action by law enforcement against MMJ in the Great Lakes State.
Broadcaster WLNS said agents this week seized marijuana plants, supplies, cash and personal belongings from three dispensaries owned by Lansing-based HydroWorld.
The raid occurred days before Lansing lawmakers consider a moratorium on medical marijuana shops in the city.
The federal Drug Enforcement Administration, which was also reportedly involved in the raids, executed search warrants on the three dispensaries, WLNS reported.
HydroWorld owner Danny Trevino, dubbed “the Professor of Pot,” said he plans to stay in business and that the raids won’t deter him from continuing in the MMJ trade.
The raids are the latest in a series of moves by law enforcement across Michigan in recent months. Michigan is also one of the few remaining MMJ states without a statewide regulatory system approved by state lawmakers, because lawmakers can’t seem to agree on the rules.
