Does FANG Have The Authority To Raid Medical Marijuana Dispensaries?

A trio of medical marijuana distribution centers in Genesee County have recently been raided- some places, more than once- by the Flint Area Narcotics Group, or FANG, but did the multi-jurisdictional task force have the authority to perform the raids?

That’s the question raised by Komorn Law in defense of their client, the owners of Clio Caregiver Connection. Their day in court is April 25, at 3pm before the Hon. Judge Archie Hayman in 7th Circuit Court, Flint. As one of the three raided facilities, the C3 is being sued as a nuisance by FANG via the Genesee County Prosecutor’s Office, led by David Leyton.

The issue: an Attorney General Opinion from 2003 requires a county which participates in an interlocal agreement to have approved that participation by a vote of the Commissioners, and that vote never took place. Komorn Law’s argument in their counterclaim to the nuisance suit, filed on April 18, is that Prosecutor Leyton overstepped his authority when his office acted as FANG’s agent on behalf of the County, and that the warrants and charges issued under those false pretenses should be nullified.

The “Interlocal Agreement for the Flint Area Narcotics Group” signed by David Leyton on December 15, 2015 lists seven cities, nine townships, three villages and the Michigan State Police as participating entities. To be a participating entity a community must budget a monetary contribution to FANG or dedicate one full-time officer to work exclusively with FANG. Genesee County does not appear in the listing, and they have not voted on membership.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, elected last fall, campaigned on a promise that his Liberal government would legalize marijuana. Now, we’re getting an idea of just when that is going to happen.

Speaking at the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on Drugs Wednesday, Canadian Health Minister Jane Philpott said the government will introduce legislation to legalize and regulate marijuana in spring 2017.

“Our approach to drugs must be comprehensive, collaborative, and compassionate. It must respect human rights while promoting shared responsibility. And it must have a firm scientific foundation. In Canada, we will apply those principles with regard to marijuana,” she said.

“To that end, we will introduce legislation [to legally regulate marijuana] in spring 2017 that ensures we keep marijuana out of the hands of children and the profits out of the hands of criminals. While this plan challenges the status quo in many countries, we are convinced it is the best way to protect our youth while enhancing public safety.”
