SPRINGFIELD, Mich. - A possible marijuana growing operation was busted by the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office Thursday, but the man who owns the operation says everything he's doing is legal.

The raid happened Thursday night about 9:00pm at a commericial building in the 700 block of West Michigan Avenue in Springfield.  Deputies executing a search warrant found one person staying in the business and a large marijuana growing operation, along with suspect analogues.  Analogues are defined by the DEA as a substance intended for human consumption and is structurally similar to a Schedule I or Schedule II substance is is not an approved medication.

The suspect tells FOX 17 that he was under the number of plants that he is allowed to have as a licensed grow operator.  The Sheriff's Department says they got the search warrant after several complaints about the business.

Charges are still pending.
