City Attorney Puts Moratorium On 'Pot Shops' 6-09-2010

While medical marijuana is legal in the state of Michigan, some communities across the area are struggling to keep an eye on dispensaries doling out the drug.
Now one community is working to put a stop to them completely, at least temporarily.
One of two prime spaces up for grabs in downtown Lapeer is just down the road from the Family Coney.
Many Lapeer residents TV5 spoke with said they were not opposed to a medical marijuana dispensary moving into town.
Two men recently inquired about setting up a pot shop within the city limits.
That move prompted the city attorney to propose a moratorium on such facilities Monday.
The moratorium would prevent any issuing of permits to sell or dispense medical marijuana for six months.
The differences between state and federal laws have city officials being cautious. Many residents said they home any moratorium is not permanent.
The city commission is expected to adopt the moratorium at their next meeting in two weeks.
