Federal agents want the state of Michigan to turn over records in a medical-marijuana investigation of seven people in the Lansing area.
The U.S. attorney's office is asking a judge to order the state to comply with a subpoena. In a court filing last week, prosecutors said the state is resisting because of a privacy provision in Michigan law.
Drug agents want records of medical marijuana patient cards or marijuana caregiver cards for seven people. The seven are not identified in court documents.
There are no details about the investigation. In a court document, Assistant U.S. Attorney John Bruha says possession and distribution of marijuana is illegal under federal law, even if Michigan voters approved medical marijuana in 2008.
