The City of Westland has taken the lead in Wayne County in allowing both adult-use (recreational) and medical marijuana uses in a safe and responsible manner within City limits. The City Council has identified the marijuana industry as an economic development opportunity and after several months of study sessions, adopted a Marijuana Business Ordinance in October 2019. A City Council subcommittee was formed to create the application process and on May 18,  2020, the City Council approved the City's application consideration policy. The City of Westland intends on opening the application process to the public in the coming weeks and announcements will be made on this page.
