The Jackson City Council has approved new ordinances regulating marijuana businesses in the city.

Tuesday night, by a 6-to-1 margin, the council gave the green light to the ordinances.

They won’t take effect for 30 days.

The Council will now turn its attention to setting up a licensing system.

As for recreational sales, the city will wait for the state to figure out its plan of action before proceeding with  the city’s process.

Jackson wasn’t the only local government talking about marijuana Tuesday.

Meridian Township is starting the process to approve six different locations for commercial marijuana businesses.

The Planning Commission will now take a look at the propositions and receive public input before things can move forward.
