Wyoming's law on Medical Marijuana not a ban, just an attempt to enforce zoning

In defense of a city ordinance under attack, the City of Wyoming has the right to enforce zoning, and the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act doesn't prohibit that, argued the City Attorney for Wyoming. Article here.

The Michigan Supreme Court heard oral argument last week as to whether Wyoming's ordinance was constitutional. Wyoming's ordinance was that in the city, only a licensed pharmacist can dispense medical marijuana. A Wyoming resident sued, saying that the city violated the tenants of the Medical Marijuana Act, which was passed by 63 percent of voters statewide and by 59 percent of voters in the city of Wyoming in 2008. His lawsuit was joined by the ACLU.
