Michigan Cannabis Coalition Pulls Petition.


Recommended Posts

LANSING (AP) -- Organizers of a marijuana legalization drive in Michigan have withdrawn their petition and plan to submit new language later.

The Michigan Cannabis Coalition informed the Board of State Canvassers of the move Tuesday. The group had been expected to have the form of its petition approved by the board.

The initiated legislation would require 252,000 valid voter signatures before going to the Republican-led Legislature. If lawmakers rejected the bill or took no action, it would receive a statewide vote in November 2016.

The initiative is being supported by anonymous people from the agricultural, real estate, insurance and education sectors. The group says Michigan could add jobs and tax revenue by legalizing and regulating marijuana for recreational purposes.

The state already allows marijuana use for medical purposes.
