Ludington City Council to vote on recreational marijuana business ban

December 16, 2018

The Ludington City Council on Monday will vote on whether or not to approve an ordinance that would prohibit all recreational marijuana businesses within the city limits.

The recently enacted Proposal 1 legalized recreational marijuana use in Michigan for adults 21 or older. The state government has one year to create a licensing system for recreational marijuana dispensaries, but the new law also allows municipalities to opt out of allowing dispensaries in their jurisdictions.

Interim City Manager Steve Brock has recommended opting out until the council decides that it wants recreational dispensaries in Ludington, and he emphasized that the council could decide to opt in again in the future.
