MI (CBS Detroit) — Families in one Mid-Michigan community are fed up with the smell of marijuana in their neighborhood.

High Life Farms medical marijuana facility grows thousands of marijuana plants under an ordinance in the village of Chesaning.

Residents say the odor coming from it violates the terms of the ordinance.

According to the village’s ordinance, no provisioning center shall be operated in a manner creating noise, dust, vibration, glare, fumes or odors detectable to normal senses beyond the boundaries of the property.

The general manager of High Life Farms said they have received at least two separate complaints from officials in the summer and winter.

The manager also said they addressed the issue both times, sealing off their roof with heavier insulation and other materials to prevent the smell from escaping.

However, residents claim the odor is still there.

Officials, reached out to village officials for comment, but have not heard back.
