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.

Click here to hear an in-depth conversation on Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson about the marijuana proposals on the November ballot in Detroit.

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.

WDET’s Jake Neher and Michigan Public Radio’s Cheyna Roth talk about the uncertain future of medical marijuana regulations, both in Detroit and across the state.
