Marijuana dispensaries to be allowed in New Baltimore
Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Mon, December, 17th 2012 by THCFinder
Officials from the city of New Baltimore finally decided on a medical marijuana ordinance that will allow dispensaries to exist in the industrial area.
This decision came during the Dec. 10 meeting and Councilman Jeff Christie was the only member of the council to cast a dissenting vote.
In the ordinance, which was drafted by the Planning Commission, it states dispensaries must be located within the industrial district and cannot be within 1,000 feet of any secondary or primary school. Currently, the Anchor Bay School District has their alternative education high school, Compass Pointe, located in the industrial district.
According to the ordinance, cultivation is only permitted in the dispensary and sale of the substance between a registered caregiver and patient must not take place within the center.
"In other words, there will be no sales there," Councilman Karl Rutledge, who was instrumental in drafting the approved ordinance, said. "They cannot use and they cannot pick up at these locations."
Christie, who has advocated for the growth of medical marijuana in residential areas as well, didn't have much to say about the ordinance this time around other than that he felt statements on crime were based on opinion, not fact.
"It's still better than nothing," Councilman Ken Butler said.
