smokeythebear Posted January 17, 2011 Report Share Posted January 17, 2011 just got wind that the city of marquette MI ( da U.P.) is having a meeting on the 24th to talk about decriminalization of rec. use in the city and also to talk about what there going to do about the dispensarys (there's one working on opening soon) here's a copy paste where i got it from, i will be attending this meeting even though i live a hour away :-) if they get the ball rolling i hope the rest of the UP goes along. quote "On Monday, January 24th, the Marquette City Commission is holding a Special Meeting in Commission Chambers at the Marquette City Hall. The meeting begins at 6:00 pm. At this meeting, the Commission is set to take up two important topics of discussion. The first is a proposal to decriminalize marijuana possession in the city of Marquette. The other is what to do, if anything, about Medical Marijuana Dispensaries within the city of Marquette. There will be time for the public to address the Commissioners and make their opinion known. This is your opportunity to express your thoughts on the matter to the Commission. Their decisions that day can and will have a long-lasting effect on the medical marijuana community in the u.p.'s largest city. Don't forget. Most of these elected officials don't understand medical marijuana. Most, if not all of them only know what they've been "told" about marijuana for the last 100 years. It's up to US to educate them and remind them that they've been elected to represent the people of Marquette. On November 4th, 2008, nearly 63% of the city voters voted YES on Proposal 1. It's an overwhelming majority. They need to be reminded of this. We need to let them know that the city is not going to be overrun with crime, and that there are many positive benefits to medicinal marijuana use in the community. Please come to the meeting. It's Monday, January 24th at 6:00 pm in Commission Chambers at the Marquette City Hall. (300 W. Baraga Ave.) across from St. Peter's Cathedral. These are the ONLY two issues the Commission will be working on, so let's pack the place and make our voices heard!" we need chuck reams to come up and speak, man can he get a person fired up ;-) I'll keep ya's posted.
