Nearly 300 Michigan Towns Are Saying No To Cannabis Businesses

The total is up to 114 as of this week

Less than three months after Michigan voters approved legalizing marijuana for adult recreational use, many of the state’s cities, townships and villages are not high on pot.

As part of the Nov. 6 ballot proposal, communities have to take a vote to  ban recreational marijuana businesses in their borders, and nearly 300 communities across Michigan have voted to prohibit those businesses, according to an unofficial list compiled by the state’s Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Department, which is charged with creating the rules and regulations covering the legal weed market.

That’s nearly three times as many communities — 114 as of this week — that have drafted ordinances to allow medical marijuana businesses. Most of those communities are most likely to also allow recreational marijuana businesses once the state starts licensing those facilities early next year.
