Backers of a ballot question to legalize recreational marijuana in Michigan are approaching the finish line

Hundreds of petition circulators in Michigan have been busy collecting signatures for the legalization of cannabis. 

Josh Hovey, the spokesman for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol, says the group is pushing forward and their petition drive will collect its 300,000 signature in the coming days. 

That 300,000-signature estimate comes close to the total of 252,523 verified signatures organizers must submit by Nov 22, 2017. To be safe, the campaign hopes to collect at least 360,000 signatures before the November deadline. 

“We’re expecting based on the rate that we’ve been going that we should be finished hopefully a month ahead of schedule, if not a little earlier,” says Hovey.

If enough valid signatures are collected, voters would decide in November 2018 whether to legalize recreational cannabis.
