Albion City Council To Consider Medical Pot, But Not Dispensaries
At the Albion City Council meeting Tuesday night, the agenda states that a 2nd reading and approval of the ordinance will be considered, and if it is approved it could be in effect by mid-March. Under Albion’s proposed ordinance, medical marijuana dispensaries would not be allowed, but up to 20 total growers, processors, testers and transporters could open.
Some restrictions include requiring they stay 250 feet away from public parks and churches, and 500 feet from schools and childcare facilities.
Earlier this month, the Battle Creek City Commission approved medical marijuana businesses, including dispensaries; those are already in effect, according to the language of the ordinances. Just two days after Battle Creek's vote, Bedford Township approved a similar pair of ordinances.
