The FBI says a Michigan restaurant owner was willing to pay bribes to suburban Detroit officials to try to get them to allow him to open a medical marijuana dispensary.
The disclosure was made in a document filed this week in federal court. The government wants to keep $15,000 that was voluntarily turned over to agents by an unidentified Garden City official. No charges have been filed.
