Bangor Township

Recreational marijuana shops could start securing permits in a portion of Bay County.

During a meeting Tuesday, the Bangor Township Board approved to allow recreational marijuana shops within the township.

Township Supervisor Glenn Rowley said they could start getting applications for recreational marijuana business permits as soon as Aug. 14.

Rowley said the recreational marijuana ordinance will be very similar to the medical marijuana ordinance, which can be read here.

The ordinance will allow for an unlimited number of retailers but limits the number of growers and processors.

While permits could be issued as early as next month, businesses will still need to be licensed through the state. There’s no timeline yet on when the state will begin issuing licenses.
