The City intends to issue permits for and to regulate marihuana facilities to the extent they are permitted under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Facilities Licensing Act. The City does not intend that permitting and regulation under this chapter be construed as a finding that such facilities comply with any law. By requiring a City MMF permit and compliance with the requirements of this chapter, the City intends to protect the public health, safety and welfare by:
   (a)   Promoting the safe, regulated manufacturing, production, and sale by state-licensed facilities of medical marihuana, and to ensure the safe access to medical marihuana to the City's patients;
   (b)   Discouraging the sale of unsafe and unlicensed medical marihuana products;
   (c)   Preserving and protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the City and the general public by minimizing unsafe and unregulated medical marihuana production and sale; and
   (d)   Establishing standards and procedures by which the siting, operating, and maintaining of a Medical Marihuana Facility shall be governed.
