MEDICAL MARIHUANA FACILITIES LICENSING REGULATIONS & APPLICATIONS FOR THE CITY OF ALBION
The Michigan Legislature enacted Public Acts 281-283 of 2016 known as the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. This Act sets forth the rules, regulations, and standards for five types of medical marihuana facilities authorized under Michigan law. In order for any of those facilities to operate within the City of Albion, the City must first enact an ordinance providing for the same. The City Council authorized the licensing of four of the five allowable facilities. The four types of licensing are Grower Facilities, Safety Compliance Facilities, Processor Facilities and Secure Transporter.
The ordinance outlines the standards, application process, licensing process, and penalties for violations.
“(A) All Grower Facilities shall be limited to the M-1, and M-2 Zoning Districts. Safety Compliance Facilities shall be limited to the C, M-1, and M-2 Zoning Districts. Secure Transporters shall be limited to the C, M-1, and M-2 Zoning Districts. Processor Facilities shall be limited to C, M-1, and M-2 Zoning Districts. See map below.”
