Marijuana Legalization Initiative To Be On November Ballot In Michigan
Author: Anthony Martinelli  23/04/2018 - 22:40:00

Enough valid signatures have been gathered in Michigan to place a marijuana legalization initiative on this November’s general election ballot.

The Committee to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol has submitted an estimated 277,370 valid signatures for their marijuana legalization initiative, according to the Bureau of Elections. This is well more than the 252,523 needed to place the proposal on the November ballot. The Board of State Canvassers is expected to officially certify the signature count later this week.

If passed into law by voters, the initiative would legalize the possession (10 ounces at home, 2.5 ounces outside of home) and personal cultivation (up to 12 plants) of marijuana for those 21 and older, while establishing a system of licensed marijuana retail outlets. Marijuana would be taxed with a 10% excise tax and a 6% sales tax, with funding going towards schools, local governments and road repairs.

The Committee to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, which put forth the initiative, is a partnership between the Marijuana Policy Project, the ACLU of Michigan, the Drug Policy Alliance, the National Patients Rights AssociationMichigan NORMLMI Legalize, the Michigan Cannabis Coalition, and lawyers from the State Bar of Michigan Marijuana Law Section.
