A Lansing man who operated marijuana dispensaries statewide, including two in Kent County, will spend 15 years in prison after he was convicted of 10 federal marijuana trafficking charges.

Federal arrests like these are rare in states like Michigan where laws allow marijuana use.
The Lansing man named Danny Trevino received a nearly 16-year sentence for the man who made YouTube videos calling himself the “professor of pot.” So what happened in Danny Trevino’s case? Warner attorney Bob Hendricks is interviewed about the particulars of the case and offers insight into this unusual sentencing in a state where marijuana is legal. Read the full article here.
