Recreational Marihuana 

The City of Ypsilanti opted-in to the MRTMA on October 15, 2019. This legislation opens up additional uses in the city. The ordinance caps the number of retailers at seven permits, with an additional three permits for social equity retailers. The ordinance also caps excess growers at one permit.

Currently there are three Social Equity licenses available for Recreational Retailers and one license available for excess grower. All other uses do not have a cap but  zoning buffering distances do apply. 

Medical Marihuana

In November of 2017, the City of Ypsilanti opted-in to the MMFLA, capping the number and type of facilities at three growing/processing facilities and seven provisioning centers.
