Small communities are hit with lawsuits over licensing.This story was republished with permission from Crain's Detroit and written by Dustin Walsh.  For many marijuana operations seeking to open locations in communities across Southeast Michigan, plans are dying on the vine. Dozens of companies remain at loggerheads with city councils over the licensing selection process, and the disputes have been playing out in Michigan's court system for years. The cities of Royal Oak, Warren, Pontiac, and others remain tangled in lawsuits, keeping marijuana operations sidelined while the judges cultivate a ruling.
