Meridian Twp. board turns down marijuana ordinance

MERIDIAN TWP., MI (WLNS) – Medical marijuana in mid-Michigan has been a controversial topic for years.

On Tuesday the Meridian Township board looked to clear up some of the questions as the board put its updated medical marijuana ordinance up for a vote.

In an unexpected turn of events the board shot down the ordinance and then shot down a motion to reconsider the vote.

The new ordinance would have covered a number of measures, including how the use of medical marijuana is defined and where grow and transfer facilities can operate in relation to public schools.

A township official has told 6 News that it is possible the ordinance will come back at the board’s next meeting.
