There will be no more than four cannabis delivery businesses within the township, and The Botanist business is not included in that number.
The township also wants to limit the hours of operation for cannabis businesses. Licensed cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors would be limited to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily operations. Cannabis retailers could only sell their products from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
On the premises of the cannabis businesses, the township does not want anyone consuming the product, removing it from its original packaging, or consuming it in a vehicle on the premise of the business.
A person under age 21 will not be allowed in any building where cannabis is sold, and they will not be allowed to buy cannabis, according to the ordinance. No person can transfer cannabis to a person under the age of 21, the ordinance says.
Cannabis products will be subject to state sales taxes, and the municipality will add a 2% tax for cannabis cultivators, manufacturers, and/or retailers and 1% for wholesalers.
Licenses can be suspended or revoked for violation of any provisions of the cannabis ordinance.
Fines can also be accessed to any licensee, who fails to comply with the cannabis ordinance. The license holder can have his or her license subject to a fine of $2,500 for a first offense, and $3,500 for any subsequent offense.
