MUSKEGON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A line has formed outside a western Michigan government building more than a week before local officials start accepting applications for recreational marijuana licenses.
Several people formed a line Wednesday outside the Muskegon Township Hall, bringing chairs and blankets with them. Township trustees approved an ordinance allowing recreational marijuana businesses to open there.
But Muskegon Township Supervisor Jennifer Hodges tells WOOD-TV that only seven licenses are available and they’ll be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis for applicants meeting all requirements.
Everyone in Wednesday’s line was getting paid by a business to hold their spot in line.
Bill Gillikin says he spent his time sitting in the line just “getting caught up on some things.”
