The Wakefield City Council acted Monday to opt out of recreational marijuana sales. The council voted 5-0 to hold a second reading of an ordinance at is Jan. 28 meeting, and put adoption of the ordinance to a vote at that time.”It’s the same ordinance other communities have adopted,” said city attorney Ray O’Dea.It means there won’t be any retail sales outlets in Wakefield, and that sale of marijuana and consumption will be banned in public places. Nevertheless, based on the Nov. 6 vote in Michigan, recreational use of marijuana will remain legal. Individuals may grow their own, or obtain it via any legal source. The new law has no impact on medical marijuana operations in Gogebic Range communities.
