Any ordinance enacted under this subsection by a county with a population of less than 500,000 does not apply in any municipality that has enacted an ordinance prohibiting the possession of marijuana. Any ordinance enacted under this subsection by a county with a population of 500,000 or more applies in every municipality within the county.
