Dexter village residents who exercise their rights under the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act are now covered in the village's code of ordinances.

The Village Council approved the ordinance changes after a silent public hearing Monday evening.

The ordinance additions include the definition of "home use occupation," which is in congruence with the state law, which allows qualifying patients registered with the Michigan Department of Community Health to legally cultivate medical marijuana at their primary residence for personal use with assistance from a primary caregiver.

Last week the Dexter Village Council made a very wise decision regarding medical marijuana dispensaries: they decided to get with surrounding townships for a regional approach to regulation.

It was an idea taken from what the city of Holland is doing with its neighboring townships, and after doing some research and thinking on the matter, regional regulation strikes me as the best approach.

The ordinances, which were crafted by the village planning commission and Community Development Director Allison Bishop, were set aside in favor of the regional approach proposed by Village Council Trustee Jim Smith.

Dexter village will soon be one of the first municipalities in Michigan to pass comprehensive regulation dealing with medical marijuana dispensaries.

The Village Council held a public hearing Monday on a penalty structure for operators who violate the ordinances which will place overlay zoning along Dan Hoey and Dexter-Ann Arbor Road, as well as parts of Baker Road.

The overlay zoning will allow the village to corral medicinal marijuana grow operations without having to rezone parcels or merging the additional zoning specifications with existing zoning guidelines for medical facilities in the village.

While the March 21 moratorium extension for medical marijuana dispensaries is in effect, village officials are considering implementing fines in the Dexter village code of ordinances.

The new ordinance language would be made to the Dexter General Code, Chapter 22, Municipal Civil Infractions.

The new section, Marijuana Dispensary Violations, would stipulate a $1,000 fine for first-time offenders of the zoning ordinances as they pertain to medical marijuana and dispensary placement.

Repeat offenders would pay $2,000 for a second violation and $3,000 for a third and any subsequent violations beyond that point.
