The city of Lansing from its downtown to its neighborhoods are crackling with tension over implementing the state's law which legalized the sale of medical marijuana. Right now our city has around 47 medical marijuana dispensaries where the narcotic can be purchased openly with those having a special card through the state.
The debate in the city is over how tightly the sale of the drug should be regulated. Some says that it needs to be held to the same high standards as pharmacies while others say that the obstacles to its sale need to be held to a minimum to not impede the growth of a major contributor to the local economy.
The Lansing City Council is expected to soon adopt a regulatory ordinance and here's a draft of the latest version. Any comments? Too tight? Too loose? Leave a comment. Click on this link or the graphic to reach a copy of the proposed ordinance.
