As Big Daddy’s Hydroponics heads back to court Monday to fend off another attempt from the Michigan Attorney General to close the Chesterfield business, its owner says the business is being unfairly targeted.
Rick Ferris, also known as Big Daddy, said that Atty. Gen. Bill Schuette’s allegation that the compassion center violated the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act is unfounded.
“He’s not slowed down since he got in office; he’s not going to stop now,” Ferris said. “We are definitely targeted. This is a civil matter. For him to jump in a civil matter, this is ridiculous.”
Schuette and Chesterfield Township have united in attempt to shut down Big Daddy’s, claiming it’s a public nuisance. Macomb County Circuit Court Judge John Foster initially ordered the compassion center to close. But, his clarified opinion allowed the dispensary to stay open with limited medical marijuana sales under the law.
