In Canton Township, the Board of Trustees has addressed the issue of medical marijuana through zoning. Supervisor Phil LaJoy said the township kept the zoning ordinance simple but effective when they adopted changes to it a few months ago. “Our zoning prohibits any type of business that is not in compliance with federal and state law,” he said.
That condition would ban marijuana dispensaries, which remain in violation of federal statutes despite the state regulations. This would also ban the cultivation of marijuana. Canton Township’s zoning ordinance regulates in a manner that knowingly allowing individuals to cultivate, possess, or use marijuana for any purpose, even medical and even legally under State law, could place you in a position of participation of criminal activity.
