FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A site where Flint police officers blossomed could become a home for budding marijuana.

The city administration is proposing to sell the old Flint police academy to Evergrow LLC, which grows marijuana.

Evergrow is offering $500,000 for the 4-acre property.

The building has been empty for years; the last police academy class graduated in 2010.

Flint council member Santino Guerra says it's “kind of ironic” that a training site for police could become a marijuana grow shop.

Council member Eric Mays says the city should move quickly.

Mays says, “I don't want to blow a deal.”
