Delta OKs medical marijuana ordinance By MARY JO WHITE

DELTA TWP. - Medical marijauna regulations have been set in Delta Township by a vote of the township board on Feb. 7. The board approved the ordinance modeled upon one drafted by Cooley Law professor Gerald Fisher that is based on licensing and not zoning. It approves the licensing of caregivers’ homes, a process which will behandled by the sheriff’s department out of privacy concerns. No signage will be allowed. “There are glaring holes in the state law,” said township supervisor Ken Fletcher after the board meeting. “This gives us the opportunity to license caregivers’ ( homes) and protect residents.”




Delta currently has a moratorium on medical marijuana dispensaries scheduled to expire March 7. The regulations adopted by Delta Township license the places where marijuana is cultivated and distributed, not individual caregivers. These have to be the caregivers’ homes, and they have to be more than 1,000 feet from schools and child care centers and 500 feet from each other. Home day cares that serve up to 12 children are not included in the 1,000 foot restriction. Because of privacy issues, the license will come from the sheriff’s department as the enforcement agency and not the township. There will be a $100 licensing fee, with a renewal fee of $25.

Other provisions include having the plants grown and marijuana used only indoors and requiring proper electrical and plumbing permits for home improvements to help grow the plants. Fletcher also said the ban on dispensaries was a good idea because it would keep them from springing up on Delta’s main artery, Saginaw Highway. Under the provisions of an initiative approved by Michigan voters in 2008, patients with registry ID cards from the Michigan Department of Community Health may grow up to 12 plants in their homes and possess two-and-a-half ounces of the drug. Patients who have a specified caregiver, however, are not allowed to grow plants themselves. Instead, caregivers, who may have up to five patients at a time, are responsible for growing and providing the marijuana, with 12 plants per patient. If caregivers are themselves registered patients, each one could have up to 72 plants and possess almost a pound of marijuana. Local communities have been struggling to implement what has turned out to be an ambiguous state law.

Information meetings about the upcoming MDOT projects on Saginaw Highway in Delta and Lansing townships will be at noon and 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 15 at the Delta Township offices. M-100 will be closed at the same time the bridge is closed. A detour will be posted. As part of this $5.2-million project, the bridge will be rebuilt, along with the ramps at the interchange. The improved safety and sight distance at the bridge will eliminate the need for the two traffic signals currently in use at the interchange. Both signals will be removed after the project is

complete. During construction, the posted detour route on the north side of the interchange includes Howe Road and Grange Road. On the south side of the interchange, the detour route includes Grand River Avenue. After the bridge reopens to traffic at the end of July, painting will continue on the bridge through August. There will be shoulder closures on M-100 and single-lane clo-

sures in each direction of I-96 to accommodate this work. The entire project is expected to wrap up by the Labor Day holiday weekend. For up-to-date information on this project, go to the list of statewide lane closures at: Follow MDOT at MichiganDOT or MichiganDOT.

LCC to house new utility worker training center By MARY JO WHITE

DELTA TWP. - Lansing Community College’s west campus will welcome a new training center for utility workers , thanks to approval of a special land use permit amendment by the township board Feb. 7. At least 1,700 utility line workers are expected to leave the field, primarily

by retirement, within the next five years, according to George Berghorn, chairman of LCC’s Environmental, Design and Building Technologies Department. “There are no facilities in Michigan right now that have the capacity to train the number of new workers needed,” Berghorn said, adding that training dollars are now going to communities in other states.

Township supervisor Ken Fletcher agreed that there is a definite need for the new center. “Lansing Community College has been getting requests from all over the country,” Fletcher said. The new center will be located on Sanders Road north of the David Chapman Insurance Agency and David Kallman’s law office on Mt. Hope.

The site will house utility poles for training workers and a wooden shed in the first year. Plans for the following year include a pole barn with indoor poles and a metering school, as well as a concrete utility vault at ground level, according to Berghorn. The training site will have its own fence and parking lot. In addition, a

sidewalk will be built on Sanders Road. Students will be trained in many skills needed by utility workers including installing gas pipes, splicing fiber-optic cables and constructing overhead and underground lines. Berghorn says there are several training sites currently in use, but all are at capacity, including the Board of Water and Light

site here in Delta, a Consumers Energy one in Marshall and a DTE one in Westland. “Construction of this (new) site assists LCC in expanding service to a greater number of students, “ Berghorn said. “(In addition,) it allows all utilities in the Great Lakes region to benefit from a local, wellrun training facility.”

Bible study will be held every Wednesday at 1 p.m. at Community Baptist Church, 7832 W Mt Hope Hwy., just west of Canal Road.

The topic will be “Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound,” The Song, the Source, and the Songwrit-

Scouts help feed the hungry DELTA TWP. - A year ago, Girl Scout Troop 275 from Waverly East Intermediate School attended a charity dance. The girls had so much fun they asked, “Can we do this next year for other troops?” This is how they started putting in hours to decide how a dance could help the community. The girls organized a dance for 150 Girl Scouts from the Waverly and Grand Ledge area. St. David’s Episcopal Church graciously donated the location for the dance. There was a DJ, a drawing for prizes, a patch for every girl, and a snack. Each girl brought in food donations to enter the dance and, on top of individual donations, the troop who brought the most items won movie tickets for their entire troop. Daisy Troop 355 from Grand Ledge’s Neff Early Childhood and Kindergarten Center won the troop award with 198 food items. The total food donations from the dance were 918 items. Troop 275 had already donated items last fall. When these were added to the troop’s donations at the dance, Troop 275 brought in 1,218 food items. Before the dance the girls wanted to make a difference and help many people, so they started learning about a distribution site for the Lansing Food Bank at First Presbyterian Church in downtown Lansing. They learned this food bank provides a week’s worth of groceries for families who have very little. As they pulled items from the shelves, the girls realized there are

So they decided to focus on cake mixes, oil, Jell-O, syrup, and stuffing for donations. The troop also realized the food bank was completely out of cake

mixes and could not wait for the dance. In less than two weeks, seven girls collected over 250 cake mixes and 60 other food donations. All the girls in attendance had a great time and can’t wait to do another charity dance next year. LJ-0100069214

Waverly girls BB to host cancer fundraiser DELTA TWP. - The Waverly Lady Warrior Basketball teams will be holding a fundraiser, Shoot for Gold , (basketball’s version of Dig Pink) on Tuesday, Feb. 22. All three teams (fresh-

man, JV and Varsity) will be participating in this event, with the event beginning at 5 p.m. The purpose of Shoot for Gold is to raise awareness and money to fight for a

School news in brief Principals to be honored Feb. 14

The State Board of Education has issued a resolution adopting Feb. 14-18 as Michigan School Principals Week. According to the State Board resolution, the goal of Michigan School Principals Week is to “raise awareness of the importance of educational leadership in the school and the valuable contribution of the school principal to the success of the learning community.” Waverly School Board will recognize their princi-

pals for the vital role they play in the success of all students at the Monday, Feb. 14 board meeting. “This dedicated group of educators richly deserves recognition for their commitment to the education of Waverly Community Schools’ children,” said Waverly Superintedent Dr. Debra Jones. Each principal will receive a certificate at the board meeting and staff, students, family, and community members of Waverly Schools is invited to say “thanks” to these dedicated professionals during the course of this week.

cure for childhood cancer. The teams will be raising money for Brandon’s Defense, a local foundation out of DeWitt, named for Brandon Gordon, a DeWitt student who died in 2009 after a two-year battle with bone cancer. He was 16. More information about the foundation and Brandon can be found at How can you help? The teams will be preselling T-shirts until Feb.

15, and will be selling raffle tickets prior to the event and the night of the event at the girls basketball games. You can also help by buying a T-shirt, coming to the event and collecting change/donations. Look for the “basketball bowl” to turn in change/donations that night. Brandon was a young boy who endeared so much and stayed so strong through all he went

through. When starting to plan Shoot for Gold, and picking a date, it was only fitting that the last triple header set of Waverly girls games fell on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011, two years to the date that Brandon lost his battle with this awful disease, Osteosarcoma. The team knew at that point that there was no other date more fitting then to hold this event in his honor.

Ear Infections Childhood ear infections (Otitis Media) are often very frightening to parents mostly because they appear suddenly, usually at night, with little warning. The most common treatments used for ear infections are antibiotics, decongestants, anti-pyretics (fever medication), and tympanostomy (tubes in the ears). You may be surprised that the benefits of all of these are highly questionable. For example, The Lancet, a major medical research journal found that recovery time was about the same for children whether medical intervention happened or nothing was done at all. Another study from the Archives of Otolaryngology, showed that 88 percent of children with Otitis Media never needed antibiotics and antibiotics did not shorten the lifespan of the disease. As a matter of fact, a very recent issue of Newsweek Magazine reported that antibiotics are not nearly as effective as the body’s own immune system. What a concept!

Millions of these operations are performed in Canada and the U.S. each year and yet controlled clinical studies have determined that there was no benefit gained from the placement of tubes. As a matter of fact, they actually created complications such as scar formation on the ear drum leading to hearing loss. Not a desirable side effect!


February 13, 2011

For parents frustrated with recurring ear infections, the EENT (ear, eye, nose, and throat) specialist will most likely prescribe the “rite of tympanostomy” - words from the late Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, a friend, and a self proclaimed “medical heretic.” It is a surgical procedure whereby your child is anaesthetised so that a tube can be placed in his or her eardrum to drain fluid. Research, however, indicates that this procedure does little to eliminate the problem. It simply reduces pressure and fluid build-up.

As a Chiropractor focusing on pediatrics, I see ear infections as a malfunction of the immune system and lowered resistance. In other words, the child’s body is not able to fight off or prevent the infection. The main cause of lowered immune resistance in a child is most often the process of delivery. Yes, birth. It can be very traumatic. The stress of the average, uncomplicated delivery can cause a vertebral subluxation of the delicate segments of a baby’s spine thereby affecting the way a child’s nervous system reacts to the world around him.

In their landmark research studies, Drs. Gutman and Biedermann examined hundreds of newborn infants and concluded that ...”an unhealthy spine at birth causes...lowered resistance to infection, especially ear, nose, and throat infection.” In my own practice, which is largely pediatric, most children I see with ear infections do have a vertebral subluxation in their spine affecting the way their nervous system controls their resistance to infection. By eliminating this subluxation, the child’s normal resistance is increased and the threat of ear infection is minimized. You see, it’s not a matter of discovering yet another “wonder” antibiotic to drug your child with; it is a matter of having your child’s body function better. If you have any further questions please join us every Tuesday at 6:00pm for our Special Appointment or call us. We can help!

Warriors win two, but lose Stickler-Gatson By SCOTT YOSHONIS

`DELTA TWP. - Waverly improved to 12-2 overall and 7-0 in CAAC Red girls’ basketball play with two league wins last week, a 60-41 win at Mason on Feb. 4 and a 66-51 home win over Owosso on Feb. 8. But the news wasn’t all good, as the Warriors lost one of their best all-around athletes when DeAnna Stickler Gatson to a catastrophic knee injury in the Owosso game. (See note below) Victoria Milton led the Warriors with 13 points, Sylvia Maxwell had 11 and Carole Harris added 10 at Mason, in a game that the Bulldogs led for most of the first quarter. Jasmine Wood’s jump-hook with 2:16 left in the first began

an 11-0 run that gave Waverly the lead, 18-9 with 6:25 left in the second, that they would not relinquish, despite shooting just 29 per cent from the field in the first half. Kali Barry led all scorers with 15 for Mason. Waverly coach Erik Kutas said that the layoff due to the recent snowstorm was not the only contributing factor to his team’s slow start. “You have to give Mason credit,” Kutas said. “They played hard and kept us out of our rhythm a little bit. I’m happy that we were able to get a lead and maintain it.” Milton again led the Warriors against Owosso, scoring 11 points, and Wood and Carole Harris each had 10 in the game, which Waverly started with a 20-6 first quarter

and took a comfortable 46-19 lead into the locker room at halftime. The Warriors will be able to clinch a share of the CAAC Red championship with two wins this week, but it won’t be easy, as they face the second- and third-placed teams in the standings back-toback. Waverly will host St. Johns on Tuesday, Feb. 15 and travel to Jackson Northwest on Friday, Feb. 18.

Stickler-Gatson tears ACL

Multisport Waverly standout DeAnna Stickler-Gatson tore her right anterior cruciate ligament during Tuesday’s basketball game against Owosso and expects to miss nine months, Warriors girls basketball coach Erik Kutas said. Stickler-Gatson, a senior, was

averaging 8.8 points per game for the Warriors, who are 12-2 and lead the CAAC Red. She earned an all-league honorable mention in hoops as a junior, but her best sports are in the spring — she made the State Journal all-area softball Dream Team last season as a catcher, and also finished first in the 400 meters and second in the 200 at the Greater Lansing Honor Roll Track Meet. Kutas said Stickler-Gatson has Division I scholarship offers for track, and has received college interest for both softball and basketball as well. “She’s going to make it. She’s too tough, and she’s got too many supporters,” Kutas said. “That’s just how DeAnna is. She’s so determined. Whatever obstacles are in her way, she’ll get through them.” --Geoff Kimmerly


EATON RAPIDS -- Waverly’s team wrestling season ended with a Division 2 district semifinal that the Warriors will not soon forget. Not that they don’t want to, after jumping out to a decisive-looking 38-10 lead over perennial area power Eaton Rapids, but losing the match in a tiebreaker, 39-38. The Greyhounds went on to win the district title with a 41-36 win over Lansing Eastern. Waverly head coach Jim York said that the heartbreaking loss will not overshadow what has been a successful season. “It doesn’t invalidate anything we’ve done,” York said. “The team is 29-11, we have some kids who are wrestling well, and a few who will hopefully get out

of (individual) districts and on to regionals and the state meet.” The meet started with the 112-lb. match, which Waverly’s Che’Anthony Woods won in dominating fashion, with a 25-9 technical fall. Eric Brooks won his match at 199 with a quick fall, pinning his opponent in 13 seconds, Cameron Maldonado won in 125 with a pin , as did Cage Griffin at 130. The Greyhounds finally got on the board, winning the next two matches at 135 and 140 with a major decision and a fall that made the score 23-10, but Kyle Force’s 100th career win, a pin in 3:08 in the 145 match got the ball rolling again. Thomas Houston gutted out a tough 4-3 decision at 152 and then Aaron Mays won his match at 160 by fall to give his team the seemingly insurmountable 38-10 lead with five matches to go.

Waverly senior Cameron Maldonado (top) has the upper hand in his 125-lb. match in the Division 2 team district semifinal at Eaton Rapids on Feb. 9. Maldonado won this match by fall, but the Warriors ended their team season with a 39-38 loss to Eaton Rapids. Eaton Rapids needed to win out, and take at least four of those five matches by fall and win at least a major decision in the other to tie the score, and that’s exactly what they did. “I knew that we were probably going to lose some of those upper-weight

matches,” York said, “but the series of coincidences and mental errors contributed a perfect storm against us.” The Division 2 individual districts took place on Feb. 12, after this paper went to press. Those wrestlers who

Warriors handle Mason, beat Owosso in OT DELTA TWP. - Waverly kept within striking distance in the CAAC Red boys’ basketball title race with two league wins last week, at Mason on Feb. 4 and at home against Owosso on Feb. 8. The Warriors had four players in double figures, led by Rashaun Carroll with 21 points and Skyelar Moore with 17, in the 78-61 win at Mason. Montel Smith had 15 points and Dee Roberts had 12 for the Warriors, who hit 11 of their 18 attempts from beyond the arc in the game. Saylor Lavallii scored 15 to lead the Bulldogs, who kept the game close in the first half, leading the game 33-32 in the final minute of the second quarter. Smith hit a three with 32 seconds left to give the Warriors a slim lead, 35-33 at the break. But Waverly blew the game open in the third quarter,

which began with a threepointer by Moore that started a 14-2 run, with either a bucket beyond the arc or an and-1 three-point play on four of the Warriors’ first five second-half possessions. Waverly hit a total of five threes in the third quarter, which ended with the Warriors holding a 61-47 advantage. Despite the gaudy shooting numbers, Waverly head coach Craig Fields said the difference between his team’s first-half and second-half performance was defense. “We really didn’t say a whole lot (at halftime),” Fields said. “We didn’t get back on defense, they (Mason) got to the paint any time they wanted, and I can’t believe that they can takeus off the dribble that easily, that we were that tired that we couldn’t get back.” As opposed to just about every other group of teenagers on the face of the Earth, Fields said that his team just doesn’t talk enough.


“We have a lot of quiet guys, but communication is key in basketball,” he said. “That’s a big issue for us, in some games we just don’t do it.” Waverly waited one more quarter to wake up their offense in their 55-51 overtime win over Owosso four days later, and it very nearly cost them the game. The Trojans held a 42-29 lead after three quarters, but the Warriors made a furious comeback, outscoring Owosso 20-7 in the fourth to send the game to overtime. Moore led all scorers with 27 points, the last two of which provided the key play in the final seconds of overtime. Owosso brought the ball up with the Warriors holding a slim two-point lead, but Moore stole the ball, denying the Trojans a chance to tie the game, taking the ball the other way, making the final score 55-51 and allowing Waverly to escape with their league title hopes intact.

The Delta Township Board introduced the following ordinance at its regular meeting held on January 18, 2011. The Delta Township Board adopted the following ordinance at its regular meeting held on February 7, 2011. THE CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF DELTA ORDAINS TO AMEND THE ORDINANCE OF DELTA TOWNSHIP AS FOLLOWS: Sec. 8-200. Title. This article shall be known and may be cited as the "Charter Township of Delta Medical Marihuana Ordinance". Sec. 8-201. Intent. It is the intent of this ordinance to give effect to the intent of the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act as approved by the electors, and not to determine and establish an altered policy with regard to marihuana. The act authorizes a narrow exception to the general rule and state policy that the cultivation, distribution, and use of marihuana amount to criminal acts. It is the further intent of this ordinance to protect the public health, safety and general welfare of persons and property, and to license certain locations as specified below. This ordinance is intended to comply with the Act while concurrently attempting to protect the health, safety, and welfare of law enforcement officers and other persons in the community, and also to address and minimize reasonably anticipated secondary effects upon children, other members of the public, and upon significant areas of the community, that would be reasonably expected to occur in the absence of the provisions of this ordinance. This ordinance is designed to recognize the fundamental intent of the Act to allow for a private and confidential patient-caregiver relationship to facilitate the statutory authorization for the limited cultivation, distribution, and medical use of marihuana; and to regulate around this fundamental intent in a manner that does not conflict with the Act so as to address issues that would otherwise expose the community and its residents to significant adverse conditions. Nothing in this ordinance shall be construed as allowing persons to engage in conduct that endangers others or causes a public nuisance, or to allow cultivation, distribution or use of marihuana contrary to the express authorizations of the Act and this ordinance; and, nothing in this ordinance shall be construed to undermine or provide immunity from federal law as it may be enforced by the federal or state government relative to the cultivation, distribution, or use of marihuana. Thus, the authorization of activity, and the approval of a license under this ordinance shall not have the effect of superseding or nullifying federal law applicable to the cultivation, distribution and use of marihuana. Sec. 8-202. Definitions. Act means Initiated law of 2008, MCL 333.26421, et seq., and Michigan Administrative Rules, R 333.101, et seq. Chief Law Enforcement Official means the Lieutenant of the Delta Township Sub-Station of the Eaton County Sheriff’s Department. Department means the State of Michigan Department of Community Health. Qualifying patient or patient means a person as defined under MCL 333.26423(h) of the Act. Primary caregiver or caregiver means a person as defined under MCL 333.26423(g) of the Act. Registry Identification Card means the document defined under MCL 333.26423(i) of the Act. Distribution means the physical transfer of any amount of marihuana in any form by one person to any other person or persons, whether or not any consideration is paid or received. Marihuana means the substance or material defined in section 7106 of the public health code, 1976 PA 368, MCL 333.7106. Principal residence means the place where a person resides more than half of the calendar year. Sec. 8-203. Findings of Fact Warranting a License Requirement. (a) Under the Act law enforcement officers are prevented from securing the information necessary to determine whether or not the cultivation, distribution and use of marihuana are being conducted by persons authorized under the Act. Accordingly, the licensure of a particular location as the site of cultivation and distribution, which need not undermine the privacy and confidentiality of the parent-caregiver relationship, could be critical to law enforcement in order to identify and distinguish sites of lawful activity from sites of unlawful activity. (b) The experience in the State of California, a state that approved the medical use of marihuana in 1996, is that concentrations of marihuana distribution activity lead to serious secondary effects including: resales of products just obtained inside - since marihuana dispensaries regularly attract marihuana growers, drug users, and drug traffickers, sharing just purchased marihuana outside dispensaries, street dealers lurking about dispensaries to offer a lower price for marihuana to arriving patrons, marihuana smoking in public and in front of children in the vicinity of dispensaries, acquiring marihuana and/or money by means of robbery of patrons going to or leaving dispensaries, loitering and an increase in burglaries at or near dispensaries and a loss of trade for other commercial

businesses located near dispensaries. (c) Children are not capable of making distinctions between the lawful and unlawful use and possession of marihuana by individuals based upon the intricacies of the Act. Therefore, there is a need to insulate children from the narrowly permitted use and possession of marihuana permitted under the Act. (d) Unauthorized installations of plumbing and electrical equipment relating to the cultivation of marihuana plants may create mold conditions and/or a fire risk. Sec. 8-204. License Requirement. No cultivation, distribution or other assistance to patients by a caregiver or other person permitted under the Act shall be lawful at a location until such location has been licensed under this ordinance. By way of exception, it is not the intent of this ordinance to require a license for the principal residence of a patient where marihuana is cultivated or used exclusively for such patient’s personal consumption, however, a location other than a patient’s principal residence where a patient cultivates or uses marihuana shall be subject to the licensure requirements of this ordinance. Sec. 8-205. Application for License. (a) Since this ordinance licenses locations, and not persons, the application will not require the name, home address, or date of birth of a patient or caregiver. The information acquired shall be deemed per se confidential, and not subject to public disclosure. An application for a license shall be submitted to the Chief Law Enforcement Official and provide the following: (1) The address and legal description of the precise premises, other than a patient’s principal residence, at which there shall be cultivation, distribution or other assistance in the use of marihuana. The fact that a caregiver or other person providing assistance to patients also has an ID card as a patient shall not relieve the obligation to provide this information. (2) Payment of an applicable fee established by resolution of the Township Board. (3) Provide a floor plan, with dimensions, illustrating the enclosed and locked location in the building where marihuana is cultivated and stored. (4) Specify the number of patients to be assisted, including the number of patients for whom marihuana is proposed to be cultivated, and the number of patients to be otherwise assisted on the premises. (5) For safety and other code inspection purposes, provide a description detailing the electrical and plumbing improvements and all other means proposed to facilitate the cultivation of marihuana plants. Sec. 8-206. Requirements for Approval of a License. (a) Locations used for the cultivation and distribution of marihuana or other assistance by caregivers or other persons permitted under the Act, to engage in the medical use of marihuana, not including a patient’s principal residence which is used to cultivate marihuana or assist in the patient’s medical use of marihuana, shall be prohibited: (1) Within 1,000 feet of a building housing a school, including any facility with after school programs, or child care centers as defined and licensed by Act 116 of 1973 as amended, to ensure compliance with federal "Drug-Free School Zones". (2) Within 500 feet of a building at which any other caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act to cultivate marihuana, not including a patient’s principal residence which is used by the patient to cultivate marihuana or assist in the medical use of marihuana. (b) The location at which a caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act cultivates marihuana, or assists a patient in the medical use of marihuana shall not be the same location at which any other caregiver or person cultivates marihuana, or assists a patient in the medical use of marihuana. The maximum number of marihuana plants cultivated at a patient or caregiver location shall be as stipulated by the Act. (c) The cultivation of marihuana and assistance of a patient in the use of marihuana by a caregiver shall occur within the confines of a building and such activities shall occur only in locations not visible to the public, provided, this subsection shall not prohibit a caregiver from assisting a patient at the patient’s principal residence. (d) The necessary electrical, plumbing and other permits shall be granted for all improvements used to facilitate the cultivation of marihuana plants if the applicable requirements are met. (e) Since the location and identity of a caregiver is known to patients, signage identifying a caregiver’s location is prohibited. (f) Prior to license approval, the Chief Law Enforcement Official or his/her designee shall inspect the facility at which a caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act cultivates, distributes or assists a patient in the medical use of marihuana. The inspection shall include, at a minimum, review of the proposed cultivation and storage areas and security measures. (g) If approved, all use of property shall be in accordance with an approved application, including all information submitted by the applicant in reliance on which the application shall be deemed to have been approved. (h) A caregiver location that exists on the effective date of this ordinance must file an application for a license within thirty days of the effective date of this ordinance in order to continue to legally operate. Sec. 8-207. License Renewal. Prior to the expiration of the original one year license, a license renewal application, and applicable fee, shall be filed with the Chief Law Enforcement Official. Any changes to the information provided on the original application shall be indicated on the license renewal application. If it is determined that the caregiver location is in compliance with the applicable requirements, a one year license renewal shall be issued. A license renewal application shall be submitted requesting renewal for every year thereafter. Sec. 8-208. License Revocation. (a) The Chief Law Enforcement Official may revoke any license issued under the provisions of this Ordinance upon any of the following findings:

(1) A violation of any state or local regulations or provisions of this Ordinance. (2) Operation of a location at which a caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act cultivates, distributes or assists a patient in the medical use of marihuana in an unlawful manner or in a manner contrary to the public health, safety and welfare. (3) Any attempt to transfer the license to another location or to use the same improperly. (4) The information provided with the license application was falsified, incomplete, and/or inaccurate. (5) Abandonment of the location upon which the caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act cultivates marihuana or assists a patient in the medical use of marihuana. For the purpose of this section, the cessation of use of the property by the caregiver or other person for six months or more shall constitute abandonment. (b) Upon serving notice of a license revocation by the Chief Law Enforcement Official, the caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act to cultivate marihuana or assist a patient in the medical use of marihuana shall cease such activities immediately. (c) No property at which a license has been revoked for the cultivation of marihuana or assistance to a patient in the medical use of marihuana by a caregiver or any other person permitted under the Act to conduct such activities shall be eligible to receive another license at any location within the Township for three years from the date of license revocation. Sec. 8-209. License Appeal. An application for an original or renewal license which has been denied, or an existing license which has been revoked, by the Chief Law Enforcement Official may be appealed to Eaton County Circuit Court. Sec. 8-210. Findings of Fact Warranting Restrictions on Distribution of Medical Marihuana. (a) The Act reflects the intent to a private and confidential patientcaregiver relationship to facilitate the lawful cultivation, distribution, and use of marihuana strictly for medical purposes, that is, an authorization for confidential and private use of marihuana by patients, and for confidential and private assistance in such use by caregivers to individual patients. It is reasonable to expect and require that all undertakings of caregivers and other persons in assisting a patient are intended to occur on a confidential and private one-to-one basis. (b) The confidentiality provisions of the Act reflect the intent for all caregivers and patients to remain anonymous in terms of their name and address, thus further reflecting the private and confidential nature of the activities contemplated between a caregiver and the patient he or she is assisting. (c) It is deemed necessary to maintain, by licensure, an environment promoting the protection, efficiency, and effectiveness of law enforcement officers and their work performed in connection with the cultivation, distribution or use of marihuana. (d) All of the findings stated in section 8-203 herein, in support of the requirement for licensure are incorporated by reference to this subsection of the ordinance. Sec. 8-211. Restrictions on the Distribution of Medical Marihuana. A caregiver, and any other person authorized under the Act to assist patients, if any, shall distribute medical marihuana only on a confidential, oneto-one, basis. Sec. 8-212. No Vested Rights. A property owner shall not have vested rights or nonconforming use rights that would serve as a basis for failing to comply with this ordinance or any amendment thereto. Sec. 8-213. Penalty for Violation, Municipal Civil Infraction. (a) A person who violates any provision of this article or the terms or conditions of a license is responsible for a municipal civil infraction in accordance with Article VII of Chapter 2 of the Code of Ordinances. Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit the remedies available to the Township in the event of a violation by a person of this Article or a license. (b) If any fines or costs associated with this article are not paid, the civil infraction citation may be filed with the district court in accordance with subsection 2-183 of this Code. Sec. 8-214. Severability. If any clause, sentence, paragraph, or part of this Ordinance shall for any reason be finally adjudged by any court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invalidate the remainder of this Ordinance but shall be confined in its operation to the clause, sentence, paragraph or part thereof directly involved in the controversy in which such judgment is rendered. Sec. 8-215. Repeal. All ordinances or parts of ordinances of the Charter Township of Delta inconsistent herein are hereby repealed so far as they may be inconsistent with the provisions of this Ordinance. Sec. 8-216.
