An Escanaba man is going to trial in the near future for growing marijuana at his home.
He claims it was for medicinal reasons.
37-year-old Jason McEntire was arrested earlier this month.
Back in November, the U.P. Substance Enforcement Team made a drug bust at his home.
They say they found more than a dozen marijuana plants.
The raid happened after Election Day.
But it was before the new voter-approved state law allowing medical marijuana use with a doctor’s permission took effect.
McEntire and his attorney say he got the written OK from a physician in January.
He’s facing 2 counts of marijuana manufacture or delivery, and 1 count of maintaining a drug house.
McEntire is free on bond.
His trial date hasn’t been set yet.
