cannabisThe City Commission in Royal Oak, Mich., unanimously rejected a request Aug. 9 to suspend the city's moratorium on commercial facilities involving medical marijuana, blocking an effort by warehouse owner James Canner to turn his building into what could have become the state's largest cannabis growing facility.

Royal Oak, like many other communities in metro Detroit, imposed a grow moratorium on medical marijuana commerce. City Commissioner Chuck Semchena said "we don’t think there's a medical-marijuana emergency" that would keep Canner from waiting until the moratorium expires in October.
