Lake Twp. trustees say no to medical marijuana

 The Lake Township trustees have opted to not allow the cultivation, processing and dispensing of medical marijuana in the township.

 The resolution notes that under Ohio Revised Code townships may “prohibit or limit the number of medical marijuana cultivators, processors and dispensaries within the limits of the township.”
