New Ordinance in Michigan City Restricts Use of Medical Marijuana in Homes

A new ordinance in Jackson will require medical marijuana users and caregivers to use only 20 percent of their homes for drug use and cultivation.

The measure that passed Tuesday night by a 4-3 vote of the Jackson City Council is scheduled to go into effect Sept. 12, the Jackson Citizen Patriot reported.

Kimberly Jaquish was among the council members who voted against the ordinance.

"I don't think people should be restricted in their homes in any way," she said. "Your house is your castle. We shouldn't be involved in your home."
