GR hammering out medical marijuana details


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The city of Grand Rapids is moving forward to establish medical marijuana facilities, addressing the details of its policy and concerns.

City commissioners voted in July to allow medical marijuana facilities, but the application process has since been put on hold because of lingering questions. At a special meeting Tuesday morning, commissioners went over those questions.

"I think that (commissioners are) well-intended with what they're trying to do and we'll see how the conversation evolves. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the things were removed" from the policy, Matt Hoffman, a cannabis industry insider who has been working with city leadership, said.

While there were concerns Tuesday about facility locations and energy use, one commissioner objected to how many conditions there would be for applicants who want to move to the top of the list.
