(WXYZ) — There were several ballot proposals involving marijuana in a number of metro Detroit cities, one year after Michigan voters made recreational marijuana legal.

In Walled Lake, Prop 1 allowed for eight new marijuana shops, on top of the three already approved. Sixty percent of voters said no to the proposal, while 40 percent said yes.

Allen Park's proposal set an annual $5,000 fee, would regulate time, place and manner of operation and set a $150 limit on pot businesses in the city. The proposal would also add three recreational pot retailers and three microbusinesses to the city. The proposal failed, with 61 percent of voters saying no to the proposal and 39 percent in favor of it.

A marijuana proposal was approved in Lincoln Park; two medical and two recreational marijuana shops will move forward in the city. Fifty-six percent voted yes, while 44 percent voted no.

Keego Harbor's proposal had similar language to Walled Lake's. The proposal failed, with 65 percent voting no and 35 percent voting yes.
