Why is the city council involved?


I remember, way back when, the state of Michigan voted to allow recreational pot sales. I don’t remember the exact wording on the ballot, but I don’t think the ballot proposal had any stipulations as to “opting out” or “upon city council approval”.

I voted against the measure, but the voters approved it. So how does a simple ballot proposal go from simplicity to government getting their grimy fingers mixed up in it? It should not be up to individual cities and townships. What about someone who isn’t “controlled” by a city or township? Who makes that call?

Correct me if I’m wrong, but who made all of the additional rules? We didn’t vote for that. Is this something similar to Whittmer’s 151, and counting, Executive orders? We need some people in Lansing that are going to stand up for what is right.

Again, I didn’t vote for it, I don’t like it, so I guess I should be happy that the nity of Escanaba refuses to take a stand.
