Constantine approves marijuana ordinance draft

Members of the Constantine Village Council voted this week to approve the final draft of a proposed adult-use marijuana ordinance.

Once completed, the draft will be submitted to county clerk Lindsay Oswald.

The council has discussed details in the proposed ordinance since a decision in May to put recreational marijuana on the Nov. 3 ballot.

Village manager Mark Honeysett said he would consult with Oswald about ballot language before the Aug. 11 deadline.

The proposal states for the first two years after the date of adoption, only businesses that currently have medical marijuana permits from the village are eligible for recreational permits.

Trustee Cathy Piper asked if there is a way to keep large corporations dealing with recreational marijuana out of the village after the two years.
