Cadillac’s industrial park may soon become one of the centers of cannabis production in Northern Michigan. On December 6th, the Cadillac City Council approved changes to two ordinances that will allow industrial cannabis facilities to operate within the city.
The changes to the city’s cannabis ordinances eliminate license caps for certain establishments, eliminate stacking restrictions for cannabis growers in industrial zones, and allow equivalent licenses to be operated in the same location to the extent permitted by state law. Equivalent license means any of the following held by a single licensee: a cannabis grower license of any class, a cannabis processor license, a cannabis provisioning center license, a cannabis secure transporter license, and a cannabis safety compliance facility license.
Cadillac City Manager Marcus Peccia said industrial-grade cannabis facilities often have multiple licenses so they can perform multiple manufacturing processes at the same location. For instance, at the Lume Cannabis Co. facility in Evart which council members recently toured, Peccia said they have 20 or 25 licenses at one location. Since they have no idea how many licenses companies will require, they decided to remove the cap on licenses completely; it is not like each license will equate to a separate facility within the industrial park, Peccia added.
