The future of medical marijuana in Detroit is on the ballot on November 7th.
Voters will decide on two ballot proposals that would ease local restrictions on dispensaries and grow facilities in the city.
Meanwhile, the state of Michigan has a new licensing and regulatory structure for growing, transporting, and distributing medical marijuana. A new licensing board is trying to figure out rules for who can get a license and who can’t.
