The Pleasant Ridge City Commission approved an ordinance allowing for recreational marijuana establishments in the City on July 13, 2021. The ordinance becomes effective on July 28. The City will begin accepting applications for recreational marijuana business licenses on September 15, 2021. We anticipate having the application form available for prospective business owners by mid-August.
The ordinance is available at this link. It clearly spells out the number of establishments permitted, location and operation standards, and application requirements. The City will not be accepting inquiries from prospective business owners regarding the ordinance or its requirements until after the application form is finalized and released in mid-August.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to review and familiarize yourself with the provisions of the ordinance and, when available, application form. You should consult with your legal counsel with any questions. City administration will not be providing any interpretations of the ordinance language or application requirements.
