The Royal Oak City Commission will meet on  Monday, March 4 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 315 at City Hall, 211 S. Williams, for a work session on legalized marijuana.  Adult-use (recreational) marijuana was approved by voters statewide in November 2018. 

Michigan law allows communities to permit, ban or place restrictions on marijuana-related businesses.  The city commission is currently taking several steps to study and evaluate allowing marijuana growers, safety compliance facilities, processors, microbusinesses and retailers in Royal Oak. A brief description of the types of marijuana-related facilities can be found here. While researching this issue, the city's goal is to provide information and receive as much feedback as possible from its residents. 

The agenda for the March 4 work session is as follows:
