3 Michigan medical marijuana dispensaries raided

SPRINGFIELD — Police with search warrants raided three medical marijuana dispensaries in Springfield Wednesday, alleging they were violating Michigan law.
About 10:45 a.m. Michigan State Police troopers and undercover drug officers drove into the parking lot of The Karmacy at 4549 W. Dickman Road. At the same time officers went to the Southwest Compassion Care Center at 700 N. 20th St., and Happy Daze at 695 N. 20th St., both in Springfield.
Officers left the two centers on 20th Street by mid-afternoon but were still at The Karmacy late in the day.
Officers also went to a home in Kalamazoo County and one in Barry County where owners or managers of The Karmacy lived, according to Detective Lt. Wayne Edington of the Michigan State Police Southwest Enforcement Team, an undercover drug unit. He said troopers along with undercover officers from units in Jackson and Allegan and from the department’s computer crimes unit assisted in the raids.
Officers had a sixth search warrant for the offices of the City of Springfield and Edington said they were seeking documents about the licenses and financial records issued and kept by the city for all three businesses.
City Manager Frank Peterson said the city complied with the search warrant and turned over copies of the records.
Edington said the raids were part of an investigation begun late in 2012 because “all three were operating outside the scope of the medical marijuana law.” He said search warrants were obtained through the Calhoun County Prosecutor, David Gilbert.
