WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) — The Warren City Council is asking the public for input on a proposed lawsuit settlement that would award 28 marijuana provisioning center licenses.

The city council will vote during a regular meeting on Nov. 24.

According to a release, the settlement agreement would dismiss a lawsuit involving 31 marijuana license applicants that are seeking damages against the city as the result of alleged violations involving the application process in 2019.

“Input from residents is a key part of the process," said council president Patrick Green. "City ordinance allows 15 facilities and the settlement would increase the number to 28 facilities. We are asking residents to look at the map and tell us what they think. Before considering a major settlement that would license 28 facilities, we are requesting public input for consideration at our regular meeting of November 24, 2020. Residents can email the city council at to express their thoughts and opinions on this settlement.”
