Wyoming, Michigan Bans Medical Marijuana Within City
Marijuana advocates have vowed to boot a west Michigan city council out of office after they unanimously voted to ban medical marijuana.
Wyoming Mayor Jack Poll says city council’s vote Monday night to make medical marijuana illegal within city limits is “not a vote against the people that need this medication.”
He said medical marijuana should be dispensed like other legal drugs.
Michigan voters approved medical marijuana use in 2008. Federal law still prohibits the sale and cultivation of the drug.
John Ter Beek, a lawyer who has sued the city, said he was to meet today with the American Civil Liberties Union to pursue an injunction on Wyoming’s ban.
The Grand Rapids Press and WOOD-TV say he also plans to recall council members.
