The Flint city council has voted to allow medical marijuana dispensaries. For the past several years, the city has had a moratorium on the opening of new dispensaries, which the law refers to as provisioning centers.
Dispensaries in Flint will be subject to zoning laws and high licensing fees. The Flint City Clerk has said that the dispensaries opened before the moratorium went into effect would be allowed to remain in their current locations.
For the past year a proposed law has stalled in state government that would enable cities to permit dispensaries in their communities.
