pipeline oil spilled into
Kalamazoo River
By CAITLIN HUSTON
Daily StaffReporter
As the attempt to clean up the oil
spill in the Gulf Coast continues, simi-
lar efforts are currently underway to
resolve a spill in the tributaries near
the Kalamazoo River, and Univer-
sity professors are still examining
the issues the local spill has left in its
wake.
In apress release issued the morn-
ing of Jul. 26, Enbridge Energy Part-
ners reported a leak in their pipeline
near Marshall, Michigan in the Kal-
amazon River tributaries. It iuestimat-
ed that though the leak in the pipeline
- which runs through the United
States to Canada - was stopped the
following day, it has poured around I
million gallons of oil into the river.
Allen Burton, a professor in the
School of Natural Resources and the
Environment, said though some oil-
coated wildlife has already been cap-
tured and cleaned up, he is concerned
about the numerous aquatic organ-
isms that have not been helped.
Burton said state monitoring is
essential to determine the long-term
effects on invertebrates like mussels,
as well as fish and other organisms
that feed on the affected inverte-
brates. Oil that remains in the stream,
he added, is most likely deposited in
the sediments and collected in areas
like pools and lakes.

Four-month freeze
placed on new medical
marijuana dispensaries
By SUZANNE JACOBS
Daily StaffReporter
In their bi-weekly meeting last
Thursday, Ann Arbor City Council
passed a 120-day moratorium on
new medical marijuana dispensaries
in the city as a last-minute addition
to the meeting's agenda.
The Michigan Medical Mari-

juana Act passed in 2008 does
not mention dispensaries, leaving
municipalities across the state to
grapple with zoning and regulation
issues. Ann Arbor is one of several
cities, including Holland and Ypsi-
lanti, to place a moratorium on new
dispensaries in order to give the
council time to fill the gap in the
state law.
City Attorney Stephen Postema
opened the council's discussion by
explaining why the resolution was
put forth.
"The dispensary issue that has
come up is nowhere contemplated in
the state law," he said. "It's a problem

for municipalities. That's what they
have to deal with. Whether it came
as a moratorium or as a directive of
the council, it's entirely proper for
the public health, safety and welfare
for the council to consider the issue.
"One of the concerns that ... the
council will deal with is really the
aggregation and the consolidation
of many, many shops or dispensa-
ries together," he added. "This really
caused a big problem in California."
Postema directed his comments
at the meeting attendees, who were
visibly frustrated by the timing
of the resolution, which had been
