A dozen municipalities in metro Detroit had marijuana proposals on their ballots Tuesday, the majority of which were approved by voters, paving the way to allow cannabis businesses within their communities.

Municipalities such as Chesterfield Township, Auburn Hills and Belleville join the hundreds of communities across Michigan that now allow marijuana establishments — such as retailers, growers and processors, among other types of businesses.

Prior to Tuesday’s election, 165 communities across Michigan had opted into allowing medical facilities in their communities. Recreational cannabis businesses are allowed in 126 communities in the state.

Meanwhile, more than 1,300 communities have opted out of allowing recreational marijuana businesses as of the end of September, before the election, according to the most recent data available from Michigan’s Cannabis Regulatory Agency.

While recreational marijuana was legalized in Michigan in 2018, each town has to determine whether it wants to allow and regulate or prohibit marijuana businesses.

Here’s what happened in the metro Detroit communities that had marijuana proposals on the ballot:

Macomb County

  • Memphis: Voters said no to an ordinance that would have completely prohibited recreational cannabis businesses in their community, which is on the border of Macomb and St. Clair counties. There’s one dispensary currently operating in Memphis called Proper Leaf Cannabis Co.
  • Chesterfield Township: Voters approved an ordinance that will provide for the number of marijuana establishments allowed within the municipality. It’s unclear what that number is.

Oakland County

  • Clarkston: Voters said no to a proposal that would have allowed two medical marijuana dispensaries to open in the community.
  • Auburn Hills: Voters approved an ordinance that requires the city to approve at least four recreational marijuana establishments to operate in the community.
  • Keego Harbor: Residents voted to end the city’s prohibition of medical marijuana facilities, and to create a medical marijuana department within the city that will be responsible for overseeing the local regulatory structure for such facilities.
  • Brandon Township: Voters said no to a proposal that would allow one marijuana retailer in the township, while maintaining the prohibition on all other marijuana establishments.
  • Royal Oak Township: Voters approved an ordinance that says it will repeal the township’s prohibition of marijuana establishments and assist patients in need of medical marijuana for conditions such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and others. The ordinance didn’t specify if the township will allow only medical marijuana businesses.
  • Leonard Village: Voters said no to a proposal that would have allowed one recreational marijuana establishment, with no zoning restrictions.
  • Lathrup Village: Voters approved an amendment to the city charter that will prohibit all cannabis establishments within the city.

  • Flat Rock: Residents said no to a proposal that would have authorized one marijuana retailer and maintained the prohibition on all other marijuana establishments.
  • Belleville: Voters approved an amendment that allows up to two marijuana retailers, one processor, five growers, two medical marijuana dispensaries and two designated consumption lounges.
  • Taylor: Voters said yes to an ordinance that repeals the ban on “recreational marihuana” establishments and adopts an ordinance to allow certain recreational marijuana establishments but limits them to the city’s industrial districts.
