Medical Marihuana Facilities

Under the State of Michigan's Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act (MMFLA) communities are allowed to “opt in” to having any of five types of facilities in their community, including growers, processors, secure transporters, provisioning centers and safety compliance facilities. The State can’t issue a license to a facility unless the municipality in which the licensee is intending to operate has enacted an ordinance authorizing marihuana facilities.

On September 12 th the City Commission adopted a series of ordinances that authorize all five types of facilities in Sturgis, subject to permitting and certain conditions. The ordinance is effective October 5th , 2018 and the City will begin accepting applications for permits on November 1st , 2018.

Below are copies of the ordinance changes approved by the City Commission pertaining to Medical Marihuana Facilities. Please check back to this page as we will be updating it with more information and resources as they become available.
