WARREN, Mich. (WXYZ) — 7 Action News is following new developments in the battle between Roseville residents and a marijuana developer wanting to build a processing plant on the edge of town in Warren.

On Monday, Warren's planning commission voted against the proposed site that's located less than 500 feet from Roseville homes.

Warren’s ordinance says a marijuana facility must be at least 500 feet from where people are living, but it only applies to Warren residents not to the Roseville residents who live right across the street.

People in Roseville were upset about the proposed processing and provisioning plant just across the border near 11 Mile and Hayes in Warren.

There's said to be a gap in the law – that in effect – allows a marijuana facility in one community to infringe on another, Roseville’s city attorney wrote a letter to the City of Warren.

Warren Mayor Jim Fouts said the city council could overrule the planning commission and vote to approve the plans.
