Ishpeming Comes OUt Again Recreational Marijuana Facility

The Ishpeming Planning Commission held a public hearing on Tuesday night regarding recreational marijuana facilities within Ishpeming Township..

The meeting comes after an application was put in to open a facility. The facility proposed by Tranquility Fields would employ 8-10 people, plus the owner. A majority of opinions were strongly against allowing the recreational marijuana facility. The main concern is the location of the facility, which is near a church and a playground. Besides the location, citizens were concerned over the security of the facility, children being able to obtain marijuana products, and bringing more drugs into the community.
