(WXYZ) — One year after voters in Michigan decided to make recreational marijuana legal, several metro Detroit communities have weed on the ballot, but not all proposals are exactly as they seem.

In Walled Lake, some people believe that if Proposal 1 is passed, it could turn Walled Lake into weed lake if it's approved.

Voters at the polls will see this for Prop 1: "Shall the city adopt an ordinance to regulate marijuana sales to those 21 and up, allow certain marijuana establishments to operate in the city..."

What it doesn't say is what opponents of the proposal believe is the most important language – that it allows for eight new marijuana shops, on top of the three already approved.

In Allen Park, there's a proposal that would set an annual $5,000 fee, regulate time, place and manner of operation and would set a 150-plant limit on pot . businesses in the city.

In Lincoln Par, if voters say yes, it mean two provisioning centers and retail facilities.

Finally, in Keego Harbor, similar language to Walled Lake. That's because Keego Harbor has opted out while the city of Walled Lake has opted in, so in Keego Harbor, it's the same people behind the ballot.
