Ludington City Council bans recreational marijuana businesses; Must vote on issue again in future

December 18, 2018 GMT

The Ludington City Council Monday unanimously approved an ordinance that temporarily prohibits all recreational marijuana businesses within the city limits, with the condition that the council must vote again on the issue in the future.

The ordinance was amended so that within 60 days of the State of Michigan finalizing its regulations for recreational marijuana establishments, the council must vote again to choose whether or not to opt in or opt out of allowing recreational marijuana businesses in Ludington.

At-large Councilor Brandy Henderson Miller recommended the amendment to the ban.


“I think that gives some assurance to the public that we aren’t closing the door on this indefinitely, and that we’re going to return to this topic when we have more information,” Miller said.
