Medical Marihuana

The City of Owosso “opted in” to allow the Medical Marihuana Licensed Facilities within the city limits.  On July 2, 2018, the City Council adopted Ordinance No. 793, to add Chapter 16.5, Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing-Police Power Ordinance and amend various sections of Chapter 38, Zoning, of the code of the City of Owosso to authorize and regulate Medical Marihuana related facilities.  This ordinance became effective on July 23, 2018.


The ordinance allows for the following:

Grower Facility License  UNLIMITED NUMBER
Processor Facility License UNLIMITED NUMBER
Provisioning Center License LIMIT OF 4
Safety Compliance Facility License UNLIMITED NUMBER
Secure Transporter License UNLIMITED NUMBER


Grower, Processor, Safety Compliance and Secure Transporter Facilities are allowed in:

*UPDATE*  The ordinance amendments were passed by council and become effective April 7, 2019.

The 30 day application window and lottery date will be decided at the council meeting on April 1, 2019.

At the November 5, 2018 Council meeting, per the request from the Planning Commission, the Council approved the delay in accepting Provisioning Center Applications.  The current ordinance requires some amendments to meet the intent of the Planning Commission and clarity for our applicants.  These amendments will not become effective until next year.
