GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A court hearing to determine whether Michigan authorities must turn over medical-marijuana records to federal investigators probably won't last long.
The state attorney general's office says it's willing to comply with a subpoena from federal investigators. It simply wants a court order.
In Grand Rapids, U.S. Magistrate Judge Hugh Brenneman Jr. is scheduled to hold a hearing Wednesday on the federal government's request for information on seven people with medical marijuana or marijuana caregiver cards.
The Drug Enforcement Administration won't talk about the Lansing-area probe but says it's not cracking down on medical marijuana users. The agency says it pursues large-scale drug traffickers.
More than 45,000 people in Michigan are registered to use marijuana to ease the symptoms of cancer and other health problems.
