Three people associated with a now defunct Handy Township medical marijuana dispensary were sentenced this morning.
Marshall Alternative owners Alan Marshall and Christie Marshall were sentenced to one year probation for delivering marijuana to an undercover narcotics officer who acted as a medical marijuana patient.
Former Marshall Alternatives' employee Stephanie Baxter also was sentenced to one year probation and 10 days in jail, which she will serve on the weekends. She had earlier entered a plea to delivery without numeration.
The Marshall couple and two former employees were charged for selling the drug to an undercover narcotics officer who posed as a card-carrying medical marijuana patient in February 2011 and in May 2011.
Former employee April Sundie Smith, who worked as a medical assistant at the former Marshall Alternatives, was sentenced June 27 to three days in the Livingston County Jail for misdemeanor delivery or manufacture of marijuana without enumeration. The Pinckney resident, who declined the judge's request to speak in court, was given credit for three days already served, according to court records.
Supreme Court justices ruled this year that medical marijuana dispensaries are not permitted under Michigan's Medical Marihuana Act, which voters approved in 2008.
