The Constantine Village Council approved an ordinance prohibiting the use of recreational marijuana Tuesday.
The ordinance, written by Portage-based attorney Catherine Kaufman, will be the subject of a public hearing Sept. 16.
Council members had questions on the violation and penalties section. Village manager Mark Honeysett said people can now legally grow their own marijuana so the village has to establish they are growing far more and intend it for sale, in order to cite them.
The ordinance will take effect 30 days after adoption.
