On another topic, voters may circulate petitions to place a proposal on a future election ballot relating to the issue of marijuana. The proposal would make the possession and cultivation of limited amounts marijuana legal in the State of Michigan for adults age 21 or older. Also, it would allow the sale of marijuana to adults age 21 or older only by stores that would be licensed by the state, and finally, it would tax the sale of marijuana by these state licensed stores. If this proposal were to appear on a future election ballot, if the election were held today, would you vote yes to approve of the proposal, or would you vote no to oppose it?

Michigan NORML recently attended the Michigan Tea Party Pow Wow in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan on January 9-11, 2015. We had the best display of the convention, and people were genuinely happy to speak with us about hemp and cannabis issues. We're embarking on a new era in advocacy!

Michigan NORML board members Steven Sharpe and Trena Moss attended the event with Michigan NORML member and founder of Safer Michigan, Tim Beck. They have all reported that the event was a huge success for the cannabis community and that our issue was a part of the official discussion. Cannabis reform has become a mainstream issue in Michigan!
