Update at 11:00 P.M. (WZZM) - Now that he's won in court, Wyoming resident John Ter Beek says he will start growing marijuana in his basement as soon as possible.
"I follow the law," he says. "The law says I can grow, so I'm going to grow."
In 2010, when Wyoming banned the cultivation and use of medical marijuana in the city, state certified patient John Ter Beek sued the city. After losing in Kent County Circuit Court, Wednesday Ter Beek learned the state court of appeals unanimously supported his case.
"I'm very happy the appellate court took a close look at it," he says.
In 2008, 63 percent of Michigan voters approved the use of medical marijuana. The court of appeals says Wyoming and other municipalities cannot overrule the people.
"I knew it," says Ter Beek. "I knew they couldn't do what they were trying to do. They will not let Wyoming continue to spit on 63 percent of the voters."
