Pleasant Plains Medical Marihuana Advisory Committee is seeking Public input! There will be a Public Input Session on Saturday August 5, 2017 at 12 Noon at the Pleasant Plains Township offices at 830 Michigan Ave, Downtown Baldwin. The committee seeks Public Input on the Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. We would like to know how the citizens of Pleasant Plains Township feel about it.

Under the new Act there are 5 different Marihuana Facilities that the Township will need to make a decision on whether to license in our community or not. The 5 Facilities are;

  • GROWERS: Licensees for cultivate, dry, trim, and packaging for sale to a processor or provisioning center.
  • PROCESSOR: Licensees for extracting resin from the marijuana to create a marijuana-infused product for sale and transfer in packaging to the provisioning center.
  • PROVISIONING CENTER: Licensees for purchasing marihuana from a grower or processor and sell, supply or provide marihuana to patients, directly or through the patient’s caregiver.
  • SECURE TRANSPORTERS: Licensees for storage and transporting it between Marihuana facilities for a fee.
  • SAFETY COMPLIANCE FACILITIES: Licensees for receiving marihuana from a marihuana facility or primary caregiver and testing it for contaminants and other substances.

The Advisory committee wants to hear your ideas, your concerns and your comments so that we can make an informed recommendation to the Pleasant Plains Planning Commission.

Road Brining:  The Board is very aware brining has been an issue this year.  We are currently working on getting bids from other vendors to see if we can reasonable get our roads brined again.  We will keep you posted as we get more information.  This is a priority for the Board and we absolutely understand any frustration from our property owners.  This has been a hot issue this year with losing our original contracted company through the Road Commission and now our costs skyrocketing.  We want you to know we are working on it.
