Royal Oak Township voters will become the first to decide whether they want to buck their elected officials and allow marijuana businesses into their town.

The township board voted unanimously last year to prohibit marijuana businesses in the community, even though the township’s voters passed the statewide marijuana legalization proposal 61-39%.

But under the November ballot proposal that legalized marijuana for adult recreational use, citizens can gather petition signatures to reverse their elected officials by gathering 5% of the number of votes cast for governor in the 2018 election.
