A2: Medical Marijuana

The Wall Street Journal reports on Ann Arbor’s approach to regulating medical marijuana dispensaries, noting that city council will hold a public hearing on the issue on Monday, Nov. 15. The article quotes Eric Mahler, chair of the city’s planning commission, which recommended zoning changes related to medical marijuana: “Some people think there should be no regulation while some people say they are genuinely concerned about safety in the community and the impact on kids. The state statute does not offer a lot of guidance about where these medical marijuana dispensaries should go.” [Source]
