The city of Detroit is trying to cap the sale of pot.
The City Council unanimously approved zoning changes to limit the number of medical marijuana facilities in the city to 75 and regulate where they can locate, Christine Ferretti of The Detroit News reports. The ordinance also limits the size of an operation.
“The ordinance passed today strikes a good balance that benefits both those who want development in the medical marijuana industry and those who want to preserve the City’s pre-medical marijuana character,” Detroit Corporation Counsel Lawrence Garcia says after Tuesday’s vote.
“The zoning, it has more teeth in it now than it once did,” adds Gregory Pawlowski, a city planning commissioner.
