Congrats, Travers Narcotics team: you raided a marijuana dispensary that wasn’t trying to hide what they were doing and have prevented patients from accessing state-legal cannabis they use as medicine.
Cops raided the Magic Buds Medical Cannabis store in Wexford County, Michigan Tuesday, taking cash, business and patient records along with the stock of medical cannabis. The raid came after a judge ordered the shop to close last month for operating against state laws that prohibit dispensaries.

The shop has continued to operate in defiance of a state Supreme Court ruling earlier this year that made dispensaries illegal.
Wexford County prosecutor Tony Badovinac, who issued the cease-and-desist letter last month, will now decide whether or not to proceed with charges.
