Cannabis Facility Owners Sue Detroit Over Proximity to School

When the city realized its error, it revoked the license.

A group of companies that co-own a cannabis facility in Detroit have sued the city after their operating license was revoked.

Detroit does not allow cannabis businesses to operate near school zones, according to Crain’s.

However, the city signed off on a multi-use cannabis facility near Detroit Community High School.

When the city realized its error, it revoked the license.

The companies said that by then they had already invested millions and secured several customer agreements.

The plaintiffs said the city’s zoning maps did not show the nearby school.

With the awarded licenses, the facility was to be used for processing, testing and transporting cannabis.
