Detroit is “making meaningful progress” in shuttering dozens of medical cannabis dispensaries that fail to comply with the city’s zoning rules, a city official said.
Melvin “Butch” Hollowell, Detroit’s corporation counsel, said 171 dispensaries remain open, down from 273 in March. His goal earlier this year was to close all but 50 by December, according to Crain’s Detroit Business.
A pair of restrictive zoning ordinances and new licensing procedures that took effect in March triggered the crackdown.
Hollowell said 87 of the 273 dispensaries went out of business: Seven closed voluntarily and 80 were closed by the city.
