June 20, 2013GROSSE POINTE FARMS — Police were interested to learn last week that a licensed medical marijuana grower lives on Moross.
“He doesn’t need permission from the city, which kind of bothers us,” said Lt. Richard Rosati, head of the Grosse Pointe Farms detective bureau.
The grower moved in two or three months ago, police said.
The operation’s legal under state law, Rosati said.
“He’s a medical marijuana provider,” he added.
Officers in five patrol cars converged on the house, between Kercheval and Country Club Lane, mid-morning Thursday, June 13.
A neighbor reported the house doors open, two bouviers inside barking and the resident nowhere to be found.
“It was a call about a welfare check,” Rosati said.
Arriving officers met two friendly dogs and an “overwhelming smell of weed coming from the house,” Rosati said. “He has a big grow operation. All legal. It was done up really professionally. I thought it was too good to be an illegal operation.”
