DETROIT (AP) – Only 18 of Michigan’s 83 counties applied for money to enforce the medical marijuana law and educate the public about how it works.
Lawmakers set aside $3 million this year for county sheriffs. But a report from the state says only $823,000 was spent by 17 counties.
Sgt. James Every says the Ingham County sheriff’s office “had no clue about it.” In Kent County, Undersheriff Michelle Young says her department was also unaware.
