Bay City Commission Deciding Whether to Allow Medical Marijuana Facilities
The Bay City Commission is considering whether or not to allow the city to host medical marijuana facilities. Commission President Larry Elliott says it’s still too early to say how he and his colleagues will decide.
A special session Monday featured a presentation from the Cannabis Legal Group, based in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak. They advocated the city open its doors to multiple medical marijuana providers, which would mean better prices for consumers.
If the Commission decides to opt in, that would set in motion a three-month process involving the city Planning Commission, to craft an ordinance which would be decided in December, by a city commission with at least three new members, following the November election.
