Some Detroit pastors are on a mission to wipe out weed dispensaries in the city.
They say they have had enough of the smell, the addition crime and what it’s doing to Detroit’s youth.
That is why the Detroit Coalition of Concerned Pastors is pushing the city council to shut down the nearly 200 medical marijuana dispensaries that now line city streets.
“We don’t need this in our community, period,” said Pastor Marvin Winans.
“The state of Michigan didn’t authorize any of them to open and neither did the city of Detroit,” said Pastor Darell Reed. “And they are popping up all over the place. It’s a problem and a nuisance.”
Reed says he knows first-hand. There are two medical marijuana dispensaries right next door to his congregation, The Spirit of Love Church on Mack Avenue.
At the very least he says these businesses need strict regulations.
