Battle Creek now allows for medical pot to be grown and sold in city limits.

At the Battle Creek City Commission meeting Tuesday night, two ordinances regarding the zoning and licensing of medical marijuana growers, testers, processors, transporters and dispensaries were voted on.

There are some limitations; pot businesses must be 1,000 feet away from churches, schools, and libraries, and dispensaries also cannot be within 1,000 feet of each-other.

Mayor Mark Behnke tells 95.3 WBCK that the ordinances passed 8-0, with Vice Mayor Dave Walters absent. According to the resolutions, business owners will be able to file for licenses within 7 days, while the ordinance covering zoning will take effect within 10 days of the vote.

Bedford Charter Township will be discussing a similar pair of ordinances, when their board meets Thursday.
