MI Court of Appeals Blocks Efforts To Increase Marijuana Businesses In Mt. Pleasant

The Michigan Court of Appeals has blocked an effort to increase the number of marijuana businesses in Mount Pleasant.

The effort would have increased the number of marijuana businesses in the college town from three to ten, and was headed Mount Pleasant’s November ballot.

However, the Court of Appeals agreed with opponents Monday and said petitions used to gather signatures had technical flaws.

Officials say the city clerk was ordered to rescind her certification of the ballot language to the Isabella County Clerk immediately.

The campaign to increase the number of marijuana businesses in Mount Pleasant came following unsuccessful challenges to how Mount Pleasant gave out their three licenses.
