Westend, a news magazine serving NW Oakland County, reports the Commerce Township Board of Trustees voted to approve a zoning ordinance to regulate medical marijuana cultivation facilities.  The unanimous vote happened June 9.  Twelve or more pants in one building equals a “cultivation facility,” according to the ordinance.  It also limits cultivation facilities to areas zoned for industrial, research and laboratory use, and it would be considered a special land use.

There are currently 44 medical marijuana cultivation facilities, not counting smaller in-home growing situations that are allowed under state law.
