The Portage City Council approved ordinances for the operation of marijuana businesses in 2018, updating the program to adhere to state rules in 2020 and again in 2023.
In order to operate a Marijuana Business in the City of Portage (either medical or adult use), a business must have BOTH a state license and City operating permit. The City's application process works in tandem with the state licenses administered by the Michigan Cannabis Regulatory Agency (CRA). If the City approves an application, the City Clerk will issue a Provisional Approval that is valid for one year, and the Clerk will sign the appropriate Attestation for the CRA.
