Government wants to seize $1 million in proceeds, 11 homes and lots connected to probe


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A federal indictment alleges that more than three dozen West Michigan residents used the state's medical marijuana law as a ruse to grow thousands of marijuana plants, netting at least $1 million in illegal profits.

Calling themselves the Medical Marijuana Team, the 37 participants grew pot in Kent, Muskegon, Ottawa and Oceana counties under the protection of Michigan's medical marijuana law, the government alleges.

"The conspirators were not attempting to alleviate the suffering of patients. It was sold for profit to other individuals,'' the indictment says. "No records were kept of the amount of marijuana produced, sold or profit made from the illegal sale of the marijuana.''
