Lansing approves cap on marijuana dispensaries


LANSING, MI – The Lansing City Council has approved a cap on medical marijuana dispensaries within city limits.

The Lansing State Journal reports that council approved the cap of 48 by a vote of 5-3 on Monday. Application fees of $1,000 also were adopted.

The moves complete an ordinance regulating Lansing's emerging medical marijuana businesses.

Michigan voters agreed in 2008 to legalize marijuana for the treatment of some health problems. Other communities have passed local rules.
