Warren's Newest Licensing Hold
The City of Warren may be going back to the drawing board when it comes to marijuana dispensaries. A judge ordered yesterday, August 28, for the city to halt their licensing process after a lawsuit was filed by an attorney representing applicant DNVK4. The lawsuit alleges city officials violated the Michigan Open Meetings Act by holding secret meetings to interview applicants for Warren’s coveted Medical Marijuana Provisioning Center permits.
