SPRINGFIELD, Mich. (AP) -- Police in Michigan have searched three medical marijuana businesses and government offices as part of a drug-related investigation that began in 2012.

The Battle Creek Enquirer reports raids took place Wednesday at dispensaries in Springfield as well as some homes. Authorities say a search warrant for offices of the City of Springfield sought documents about licenses.

City Manager Frank Peterson said the city complied with the search warrant and turned over copies of the records.

One of the raided businesses was The Karmacy. Its lawyer Bruce Leach says it was operating legally. Southwest Compassion Care Center co-owner Michael Cain says it was "looted" by police.

Michigan voters in 2008 approved marijuana for some chronic medical conditions, but the Michigan Supreme Court in February slammed the door on marijuana shops.
