AP - Byron Township, Mich. – The Michigan Supreme Court will hear arguments in a dispute over whether a Kent County township can restrict where medical marijuana is grown.

Byron Township, south of Grand Rapids, has an ordinance that bars registered caregivers from growing marijuana at a commercial property. The state appeals court said the ordinance conflicts with Michigan’s medical marijuana law.

The court says local governments can’t restrict where caregivers grow medical marijuana as long as the marijuana is in an “enclosed, locked facility.” The decision set a precedent last July.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments in the months ahead.

This is in Michigan, but any cases involving cannabis that make it to the Supreme Court will affect all of us by the precedents set.
