City of Flint Passes Dispensary Ordinance - by Chelsea Shaker

     Flint City Council voted and passed the ordinance to license medical marijuana dispensaries, also known as Provisioning Centers. The city had been working on this new law for almost over 3 years, and several council members acknowledged that the ordinance would have to be updated in the future as the Michigan marijuana laws evolve. Dispensary owners that are grandfathered in are mostly pleased with the ordnance, but attorneys representing those who weren’t expressed a need to postpone the vote. Regardless, they voted 7-2 in favor of passing the ordinances. Matt Abel, from Cannabis Counsel in Detroit, is considering challenging the ordnance validity.  “Don’t get too comfortable,” warns attorney Matt Abel. “We might have to sue the city and force another vote. There are many problem with this ordinance and they (City of Flint) need to get it right.”
