Michael Komorn Posted January 11, 2011 Report Share Posted January 11, 2011 Jackson Mulling Medical Marijuana Law http://www.wlns.com/Global/story.asp?S=13818183 Many Michigan cities are trying to figure out how to handle the state's medical marijuana law. Jackson is now among those. The city council there will vote on putting a moratorium on dispensaries. Jackson joins a list of several cities trying to iron out a plan for dealing with medical marijuana dispensaries. Warren Renando, interim city manager: "The state has left us in a situation that's an absolute nightmare. Nobody knows exactly what can or cannot happen, what you can grow, what you cannot grow, how much you can have, what's legal and what's not legal." It's those gray areas that have city council members considering a 6-month pot moratorium. Warren Renando: "The city has just said, 'you know what, we're going to wait to regulate until we can find out what we can regulate, how we can regulate it, and what's the rest of the state going to do?" There actually aren't any dispensaries Jackson right now, but that's one of the reasons the city is taking it up and the city is acting fast because... Warren Renando: "There has been interest from more than one people who want to become dispensaries." When we went to the streets to see what people think about medical marijuana, there were mixed reviews. Terrell Selby, Jackson resident: "I don't support it. It's been an issue in the African-American community for many years." Anthony Speed, Jackson resident: "People with health problems, like glaucoma patients, or cerebral palsy, things like that, I think they have nothing else better to do with their time, so if they're not hurting anyone, I say go for it, let them do it." The council will vote on the moratorium Tuesday night. This isn't the first time the council will vote on the issue. The last time there was a split vote, but the city manager says he expects they'll pass it without much discussion. Michael A. Komorn Attorney and Counselor Law Office of Michael A.
