Medical marijuana has not been proven to work for many of the illnesses state laws have approved it for, according to the first comprehensive analysis of research on its purported benefits published Tuesday, June 23, 2015 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The strongest evidence of benefit is for chronic pain and for muscle stiffness in multiple sclerosis, according to the analysis, which analyzed 79 studies involving more than 6,000 patients. Evidence was weak for many other conditions, including nausea from chemotherapy, sleep disorders, HIV-related weight loss and Tourette syndrome. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu, File)

OWOSSO, MI (WLNS) – The Mid-Michigan Area Group Narcotics Enforcement Team has seized about 20 pounds of processed marijuana from an Owosso dispensary.

It happened around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the 100 block of E. Corunna Ave. at the Owosso Relief Center.

Detectives obtained a search warrant after a five month investigation into the dispensary over the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act (MMMA).

During the investigation, detectives found 60 packages of edible candy/foods containing THC/marijuana, 20 pounds of processed marijuana, THC/marijuana oils and wax and about 300 THC/marijuana vapor/e-cigarette cartridges. In addition, officials found digital scales and sales packing materials, a stun gun and about $2,500 in cash.

Under the law, the MMMA states a caregiver is allowed five patients as well as themselves.

In Michigan, dispensaries are prohibited from dispensing THC/marijuana edibles.

No one has been arrested at this time. The Shiawassee County Prosecutor’s office will review the case before and possible criminal charges are filed.
