Most of Michigan’s communities have prohibited recreational marijuana says.

Voters overwhelmingly rejected proposals Tuesday to allow recreational marijuana sales in four metro Detroit cities, a defeat that will deprive the communities of extra revenue.

The proposals were defeated in Birmingham, Grosse Pointe Park, Rochester, and Keego Harbor.

In Birmingham, 73.6% of the voters rejected a proposal to provide a license to one recreational marijuana dispensary and one medical cannabis retailer.

A proposal to allow three recreational dispensaries to open in Rochester was defeated with 89.2% of the votes. Another 87.4% voted against creating a licensing and application process to enable three recreational dispensaries to open.

In Grosse Pointe Park, 77.7% of voters rejected an ordinance that would have allowed two recreational marijuana dispensaries to open. Another 66.7% voted against an amendment that would have allowed two recreational marijuana dispensaries to open after a licensing process was established.
