Today’s show is in three parts. First, recent developments in Detroit’s marijuana business environment – including pushing a vote out to change on how close marijuana businesses can be from certain community places – have sparked a conversation.

The city voted 69-31 for recreational marijuana in 2018, but there are vocal and powerful corners not embracing it, and actively fighting against those businesses in the city. We discuss. Is it a NIMBY situation? (Not in my backyard)

Some background:

Hill Harper is running for US Senate. We discuss his candidacy in relation to metro Detroit. Of course, both are welcome on the show for future interviews.

Finally, we answer a listener question on why we cover both the city and the suburbs (yes, we’re a regional podcast).
