Grand Rapids denies lone applicant for medical marijuana grower’s license

Posted on Thursday, January 6th, 2011    

Several months ago, the city of Grand Rapids passed a statute to require medical marijuana growers to procure licenses as home-based businesses. However, since that time, the city has not issued a single license. The new ordinance requires that the businesses obtain a $224 license and undergo regular inspections. The lone applicant was denied by city officials.

Some critics say that the terms of the new ordinance are too restrictive and that it was designed with the intent to drive these types of businesses out of the city.

The state is home to 45,800 medical marijuana patients.
