Michigan Police Probe Medical Marijuana Growers
TROY (AP) — Michigan police are investigating at least three medical marijuana grow operations in Troy that may violate state or local laws.
Police said in a release Friday that the most recent incident uncovered building code violations involving electrical, mechanical and building modifications. The building’s electrical and natural gas power was shut off due to safety concerns.
In a second incident, police say they found 68 marijuana plants and more than 30 grams of dried marijuana. The plants were seized because they exceeded the amount a caregiver is allowed to have.
In a third incident, Troy officers say they also seized 48 large plants, 796 grams of marijuana and grow equipment from a man who was not in compliance with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act. They said there were also multiple building code violations.
