Why is buying recreational pot in Detroit still not legal?

DETROIT (WWJ) – Michiganders voted to legalize recreational marijuana statewide back in 2018.

A year later, the law was enacted and recreational, adult-use dispensaries soon began opening in cities all across the state – at least those that approved ordinances allowing recreational sales.

But nearly four years after the legalization, recreational pot still cannot be sold in the city of Detroit. What’s the holdup? WWJ’s Zach Clark has the answer in a new edition of The Daily J.

Detroit City Council earlier this week approved a revised ordinance that would allow recreational sales in the city, though some are expecting it to face a legal challenge, like a previously passed ordinance that was struck down in the courts.
