For those that do not attend these meetings and don't watch the full video, the meetings are always started with a prayer from one of our local pastors.  I find them usually insightful and inspiring and hope people take the time to listen.  I only list the starting times for the agenda items in these videos that I think the public would be most interested in listening to, but I hope that the public will take the time to listen to the full meetings.
First up was a speaker during the public comment period that was in favor of medical marijuana and facilities.  He spoke about what he feels are the benefits of this but he did not mention the crime that it brings into the communities.  There is a lot that could be discussed about medical marijuana and the benefits or problems that go along with it all, but I am not going to get into that on my blog.
The Township Supervisor discussed their reasons for not approving the licensing of facilities etc... during the vote on the MMFLA.  He does have a valid point in that the law here in Michigan was poorly written and implemented, and it all is still being litigated in the courts at the taxpayers expense.  They should be publishing the full ordinance on their website.  If anyone is interested in reading it you can check there or contact the township offices.
Township Manager Rose Licht always has updates and information on things going on in the township during the board member comments at the end of the meetings.
