Lansing City Council Wants More Review On City Pot Ordinance
LSJ.com reports that the Lansing City Council's Committee of Public Safety is asking for more information before deciding on a proposed ordinance that would regulate residential medical marijuana growing operations within the city limits.
More than 30 people showed up for a public hearing on the matter. But, reportedly, there is no clear cut answer as to exactly how much progress has been made on clarifying the proposed ordinance.
As the proposed ordinance states as is, residential properties that utilize more than 5000 kilowatt hours of electricity would have to register with the city, even if residents do not apply with the city as a grow operation. Meaning, whether you grow or not, if you exceed the power limit, you need to register.
Other language in the ordinance would require residents to pass an inspection before receiving a permit from the city. The next public meeting is scheduled for December 2 at 3:30pm at Lansing City Hall.
