Adrian Closer to Passing Medical Marijuana Ordinance

The Adrian Planning Commission recommends that the southern Michigan city limit medical marijuana operations to one business zoning district and bar them from sites within 500 feet of a church, school, park or playground.
The commission is holding a public hearing Feb. 1 on the proposal, which it worked out at a meeting Tuesday.
The Adrian City Commission would have to approve the plan for it to become law.
Under the proposal, only one caregiver could use a given facility. The Michigan Medical Marijuana Act limits each caregiver to five patients.
The commission's plan also calls for medical marijuana facilities to be at least 1,000 feet apart.
State voters approved medical use of marijuana in 2008, and The Daily Telegram says Adrian now has two known medical marijuana facilities.

    How many City Councils are going to continue operating with their heads in the sand? It's bad enough that these crappy City Councils and heads of municipalities have been able to put these bans into effect going directly against the people and what they want. It's also too bad that Michiganders are too lazy and uncaring about issues that directly effect us to actually do anything to make a difference. We continue to let these Councils and Boards take away what we've fought for and act as if nothings change and only end up being screwed in the end. Some of you might say, Hey, if you don't like it, move. And I couldn't agree more. This state is going to end up an unpopulated wasteland because our state and city governments do absolutely nothing to protect and serve their citizen's rights.
