Taking It to the Voters

Posted in: News- Jul 14, 2015 No Comments

Michigan marijuana advocates recently confirmed plans to launch a petition drive later this year in hopes of putting a marijuana legalization proposal on the statewide ballot in 2016. Michigan Comprehensive Cannabis Law Reform Initiative Committee is one of two marijuana-related groups eyeing the 2016 ballot.

The Committee’s Board members recently announced the ballot effort, along with its commitment to strengthening the state’s medical marijuana program, creating a regulated system for taxable sales to adults over 21, and facilitating industrial hemp farming.  Committee Chair Jeffrey Hank, a Lansing attorney, said “We’re trying to figure out the best way to boost jobs, save the state money, end the war on drugs where people are going to jail for marijuana use, raise revenue and put the money into things that people want.”
