Michigan Voters To Decide On Medical Cannabis

  • by Paul Armentano, NORML Deputy Director March 4, 2008

    Michigan voters will be deciding on more than just the next President this November; they will also be voting on whether to make Michigan the thirteenth state to authorize the use of medical cannabis.

    State election officials determined yesterday that the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act will appear on November’s ballot unless legislators preemptively approve the measure.

    Given that Michigan lawmakers have a long history of refusing to stand up on behalf of medi-pot patients, it’s a lock that this decision will be decided by the voters — who, unlike their representatives, have consistently shown their support for allowing legal access to therapeutic cannabis.
