Grand Traverse County’s Acme Twp. Passes Medical Marijuana Ordinance

Tuesday night a Grand Traverse County township board met for hours discussing the future of the medical marijuana industry in their township.

For a year now Acme Township has been looking at ways they will comply with the state’s new medical marijuana laws.

Tuesday the board discussed an ordinance that will allow permits like growing, processing, transporting, provisioning and safety compliance in their industrial district.

And the growing and processing licenses in their agriculture district.

“I think tonight we’ll see a little more of you really want to do that or don’t you want to do that and what are the concerns. I’ve been surprised up until now that we haven’t heard a lot but tonight we’re going to consider that,” Jay Zollinger, Acme Township Supervisor said.

Zollinger tells us that the meeting started at 7 p.m. and went to nearly 11 p.m. ending with a decision to pass the ordinance. The ordinance they passed will allow the two licenses in their agriculture district and only three permits of choice in their B4 industrial district.
