A management company that runs Burton’s medical marijuana shop, Big Daddy’s Management Group, has closed down their Oakland County headquarters after raids on other dispensaries elsewhere in the county by the Narcotic Enforcement Teams.

According to the Detroit Free Press, sites were raided Wednesday in Commerce Township, where defense attorneys said 34 caregivers grew the drug in 34 leased and locked units.

Adding to the county’s reputation as hostile turf for medical marijuana, the action also showed ratcheting pressure statewide on medical pot.

“We’re going from five locations in the state to four” — in Chesterfield Township, Detroit, Livonia and Burton near Flint, said Big Daddy’s spokesman Rick Thompson. The move from an Oak Park industrial park involves a dozen employees, Michigan Medical Marijuana Magazine and a business that marketed indoor cultivation equipment, Thompson said.
