The ordinance prohibits land use contrary to federal, state and local laws. However, he said the city has no interest in prosecuting anyone in concurrence with state law in regards to medical marijuana. Source: Press and Guide
There was a alternative version approved by the planning commission would have allowed medical marijuana in business and industrial areas of the city. The main concern of the council was making the city vulnerable to lawsuits. The ACLU has lawsuits against several cities Birmingham,Livonia and Bloomfield Hills are just a few city’s facing lawsuits. While there are so many people that are helped with medical marijuana there are even more abusing the law in its current form. In my assessment the state needs to take a new look at the law and change it.
