Traverse City won't allow recreational marijuana businesses in city limits.

The state hasn't finalized the licensing regulations for recreational marijuana businesses yet.

City Attorney Lauren Trible-Laucht says that's why Traverse City opted out. 

"We really just want to have the opportunity to take a look at what those rules are going to be before we try to forumulate local regulations that could potentially conflict with those rules," Trible-Laucht says.

The city commission approved the ban on Monday, but Trible-Laucht says it will likely be revoked within a year.

Marijuana is still legal to use on private property if you're over the age of 21. Medical marijuana dispensaries are allowed within city limits.
