To educate local officials about the possible consequences--positive, negative and to-be-determined--of the Medical Marihuana Act.
Medical Marihuana Act has been in effect since 2008 yet questions remain about how it will impact local governments. The law influences local issues like the right to farm, dispensaries and zoning. Several communities such as Garden City, Livonia, Niles and Roseville have already developed ordinances to deal with the law’s zoning and farming implications. MORE>
