Hundreds Protest On Behalf Of Medical Marijuana Defendants

Waterford Township — Buoyed by signs and words of support from several hundred chanting demonstrators, 10 people appeared in court Thursday to be assigned future dates to challenge multiple charges of delivery of manufactured marijuana.

The 10 were among 16 Metro Detroiters arrested Aug. 25 across Oakland County and charged with violating the state’s medical marijuana act. All are free on bond and facing charges in Bloomfield, Ferndale and Waterford district courts.

Waterford District Judge Richard Kuhn Jr. set a Nov. 4 exam date for Michael Danto, 23, of West Bloomfield; and Nov. 19 dates for William J. Teichman, 51; and his wife, Candace, 45, both of White Lake Township; Laval Crawford, 38, of Waterford Township; Todd Phillip Robinson, 34, Southfield; Kirk Swafford, 28, of Waterford; Jennifer Zuck, 29, of Waterford; Matthew Miller, 26, of Waterford, Brian Vaughan of Waterford; and Max Brochert of Birmingham.

All were arrested and charged following raids and seizures by the Oakland County Sheriff’s Narcotics Enforcement Team at a Ferndale medical marijuana clinic and a Waterford “compassion club” and its related dispensary.

The Waterford club and dispensary were owned and operated by the Teichmans, investigators said.

“This is really unbelievable,” William Teichman said, looking at supporters outside the court. “It means a lot to us.”
