Ann Arbor’s City Council has voted 9-2 to give final approval to local regulations allowing recreational marijuana businesses Monday night, Oct. 7.
It has been a year since Michigan legalized recreational marijuana.
The new ordinances take effect as the state begins accepting business license applications Nov. 1.
“I’m glad that this is moving forward,” Mayor Christopher Taylor remarked.
“The solution we’ve devised is orderly and will meet the community’s needs and will do so in a temperate, reasonable manner.”
Recreational marijuana establishments that will be allowed in the city retail dispensaries, cannabis consumption centers, growing and processing facilities, safety-compliance labs, and micro-businesses that can grow, process and sell products.
The ordinances also allow temporary permits for events with onsite sale and consumption of marijuana.
