Charges filed against Michigan medical marijuana centers
Michigan voters passed a medical marijuana law in 2008, but state prosecutors say its being abused.
The Times Herald of Port Huron reports on charges being leveled against a marijuana dispensary group:
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette filed charges Wednesday against six people connected to an investigation of the Blue Water Compassion Centers in St. Clair, Sanilac and Tuscola counties.
Authorities raided the centers, which distributed information about medical marijuana and other products, on Dec. 9, 2011 in Kimball Township in St. Clair County, Denmark Township in Tuscola County, and Worth Township and Lexington in Sanilac County.
Authorities also raided a greenhouse in Worth Township as well as the home of Debra Amsdill.
Six people face multiple felony charges, according to information and warrant documents from the attorney general’s office.
Debra Amsdill, an owner of the Blue Water Compassion Centers, said she would issue a statement on the charges tomorrow.
