More Michigan Communities Banning Recreational Cannabis than Allowing

The Detroit Free Press reports that many more Michigan communities have banned recreational cannabis businesses than voted to allow them:

As part of the Nov. 6 ballot proposal, communities have to take a vote to ban recreational marijuana businesses in their borders, and nearly 300 communities across Michigan have voted to prohibit those businesses, according to an unofficial list compiled by the state’s Licensing and Regulatory Affairs Department, which is charged with creating the rules and regulations covering the legal weed market.

That’s nearly three times as many communities — 114 as of this week — that have drafted ordinances to allow medical marijuana businesses. Most of those communities are most likely to also allow recreational marijuana businesses once the state starts licensing those facilities early next year.
