- Opts the City of Detroit ordinance into the State of Michigan Medical Marijuana Facilities and Licensing Act
- Allows for new revenue to be reinvested into parks, recreation centers, retiree pensions, and fighting the war on poverty
- Establishes standards to regulate caregiver centers through the city's Building, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department regarding issuance, renewal and revocation.
- Amends the definition of a Drug-Free School Zone to correspond to federal and state law that requires dispensaries to be at least 1,000 feet from schools, colleges and public libraries
- Dispensaries will be allowed to open within 500 feet of another dispensaries, 500 feet of exempt religious institutions where religious services are regularly conducted.
- Removes restrictions on liquor, beer/wine stores, child-care centers, arcades and parks.
- Dispensaries would be allowed to stay open until 9 p.m.
- The new ordinance will aid in preventing unscrupulous business owners from opening a Church, or Day Care Center for the sole purpose of preventing the opening of a MMCC business.
- Adoption of this ordinance by the electorate will effectively stop Winfred Blackmon, Hazel Fludd, and their clown car full of neighborhood groups who come to EVERY Board of Zoning Hearing with frivolous claims, twisted reasoning, and false allegations. In some cases the opposition lives up to 9 miles away from a MMCC facility and talk about the places like they live next door to them.
