This is a brief list of news articles and information I found while trying to learn about Northfield Township's failure to allow legal dispensaries.  In addition to fact sheets and media articles, I'll be digging out info about the abuse of civil asset forfeiture to plunder the pockets of Michiganders.  We're told the stories of zillionaire meth dealers but underneath that is quite a different picture.  Recently in the news was the case of a Detroit woman who was arrested outside a legal dispensary with her legal prescription and $10 worth of something, also legal.  Her car was seized and she was charged a $1200 "administrative" fee to get it back.  Suing for the car's return would have cost more, though she could have won.  Not a pretty picture.
