DETROIT (AP) - City residents, businesses and others are being asked their input on a proposed ordinance to help regulate the medical marijuana industry in Detroit.

A public hearing to discuss zoning requirements is scheduled to continue Thursday on the 13th floor of City Hall.

The zoning ordinance would restrict operating hours on all medical marijuana shops, impose rules to reduce the number of shops in the city and ban all drive-thru marijuana businesses. The proposal also would keep medical marijuana caregiver centers at least 1,000 feet from schools and parks.

Michigan voters approved marijuana use for some chronic medical conditions in 2008.

The Detroit City Council recently approved regulations requiring businesses selling medical marijuana to get a city license and have background checks done.
