Ferndale Court Moves Case Against Medical Marijuana Defendants Forward
Nine defendants from the fake-ID police raid on a Ferndale marijuana Defendants dispensary are due for another day in court soon. The arrest has been controversial for the tactics used by police in the raid, which included printing off IDs from the county computer which looked real in order to trick employees into selling to them.
The police have now added another charge, that of selling illegal narcotics, after finding that the dispensary was also apparently allegedly selling baked goods and beverages that included the drug.
The nine’s criminal defense attorney is protesting not only the manner of the arrest, which is being alleged as entrapment, and the new charges, claiming that they’re false under Michigan’s medical marijuana law.
This case is just the latest of several to challenge Michigan’s medical marijuana reputated lawyers statutes. No decision will be raised for weeks.
