Medical marijuana patients would be able to use the drug in private clubs under the latest version of a proposed city ordinance.
The Battle Creek Planning Commission on Tuesday recommended changing the city’s zoning rules to allow growing marijuana for medicinal use in certain commercial zones.
Compassion clubs, operations that provide support services for medical marijuana patients, would be allowed in some zones and would give patients a second place to use their medicine besides their homes.
The planning commission approved recommending the changes 5-2, with Jan Frantz and City Commissioner Bill Morris voting no.
