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

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.

Octomom’s doctor could lose medical license

The California Medical Board filed an official complaint against fertility specialist Dr. Michael Kamrava, the physician who implanted embryos into Nadya Suleman, also known as “Octomom” to the media.
