Medical marijuana to be discussed by city council, residents can comment
Regulations for medical marijuana in the City of East Lansing could be coming soon.
The city council is holding a public hearing to give residents a chance to state their opinions on medical marijuana at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, as part of the regular city council meeting.
During the public hearing Ordinance 1395 will be discussed, which sets regulations for growers, processing, safety compliance and secure transfer facilities.
Planning and Zoning Administrator David Haywood will discuss the Planning Commission's recommendation for the city council to approve the ordinance.
The council might make a decision on the ordinance at the meeting, City Manager George Lahanas said.
"There is another ordinance for provisioning centers, or the store fronts to sell medical marijuana, that will be discussed at another city council meeting at the end of December," Lahanas said.
