More Than 80 Apply to Operate Marijuana Dispensaries in Detroit

Companies like Dank House, Motown Meds and Your Grass Station were among 82 businesses that applied to operate medical marijuana shops in Detroit on Tuesday, when the city’s new marijuana regulations went into effect.

Of the first 79 businesses that applied for zoning approval, 23 were from Detroit, 11 were from Howell, six were from Bloomfield Hills and the rest were scattered throughout the state, mostly in southeast Michigan.

On Tuesday, the city released a list of the first 79 applicants’ business names, proposed locations, and the names of individuals who own the businesses. By the end of the day, the city had received 82 applications, according to David Bell, interim director of the city’s Building, Safety Engineering and Environmental Department.

Councilman Scott Benson said ultimately, he expects the city to approve fewer than 80 business licenses for marijuana shops. Benson said the new zoning rules that ban them within 1,000 feet of churches, schools, liquor stores and other drug-free zones might not allow 80 shops.
