Authorities say 17 people are facing charges following raids earlier in the week at two medical marijuana facilities in Oakland County where authorities say illegal drug sales were taking place.

Arraignments were held Friday at two area courts.
The raids were Wednesday at Clinical Relief in Ferndale and Everybody's Cafe in Waterford Township, and followed an undercover investigation. Police say private residences in Oakland and Macomb counties also were raided.

Michigan voters approved medical marijuana use in 2008.

Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard says the cases illustrate abuses of Michigan's medical marijuana law. Defendants and their attorneys say those arrested were legally distributing medical marijuana.

    Police need to focus on these crackhouses and shut them down when they are clearly violating standards. They need to operate under the same rules as hospitals and doctors office.

    When are the police going to start raiding all the homes that abuse prescription drugs? I really believe that the police need to focus on real crimes instead of medication regrdless if used according to what's prescribed or not.

    The sheriff stated it correctly abuse of the laws. These people would stay out of trouble if they followed the guidelines.
