    WILLIAMSTOWN TWP, Mich. — A narcotics squad raided a medical marijuana smoking club in Williamstown Township Wednesday.

     

    Officers from the Tri-County Metro Narcotics Squad entered the Green Leaf Smokers Club with guns drawn, the Livingston Daily reported.

     

    A customer at the private club, Terry Clark, told the Livingston Daily that he and one other customer in the club were treated “like criminals” and forced to the ground. He said officers asked them to show their state-issued medical marijuana cards and were then allowed to leave.

     

    Law enforcement officials confirmed that a raid had occurred, but refrained from commenting on the results of the raid.

     

    Wayne Dagit, the owner of the Green Leaf, told the paper that his business complies with the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act.

     

    Dagit said the club, which has been operating since February, is a place where certified medical marijuana users can use the drug together. Customers are required to bring their own supply since the club does not sell marijuana, the newspaper reported.

     

    Dagit moved to Michigan after the ballot measure for medical marijuana passed in 2008 so he could use marijuana to treat his liver deterioration from hepatitis C.

     

    The Michigan Department of Community Health began issuing medical marijuana registration cards in April of 2009, which allow patients to legally grow and use marijuana to treat pain under state law.
