Ending Marijuana Prohibition

NORML Endorses The MILegalize 2016 Michigan Marijuana Legalization Initiative

michigan marijuana legalization milegalizeBy Danielle Keane, NORML Political Director

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) is pleased to announce our endorsement of the MI Legalize 2016 initiative to regulate the adult use, production and retail sale of marijuana in Michigan.

MI Legalize, also known as the Michigan Comprehensive Cannabis Law Reform Committee, has collected more than 270,000 signatures in its effort to legalize marijuana via the petitioning process. The grass-roots effort has been collecting signatures from registered voters since June, 2015, and represents the best opportunity to enact a regulatory system in Michigan, a state where it is highly unlikely the state legislature will take any similar action.

Recent polling in Michigan indicates growing public support for marijuana law reform, including the plant’s full legalization. An EPIC-MRA poll conducted in March found 53% support for legalization, up from 50% in 2015. That poll was commissioned by Michigan NORML.

Michigan NORML’s goal is to make Michigan the first Midwestern state to legalize the adult use of marijuana. If the initiative qualifies for the ballot and is approved by the voters in the November general election, the MI Legalize proposal will be the most liberal marijuana legalization law in the United States.

We invite marijuana law reform advocates across America to contribute to the MI Legalize campaign via the organization’s website, www.milegalize.com. A Michigan angel donor has made a matching funds pledge, and for a limited time all contributions received by the MI Legalize campaign up to $100,000 will be matched, and your contribution will have twice the impact.

Please support the MI Legalize marijuana legalization campaign in Michigan.

    Go MI. TIMES ARE CHANGING SO GET OUT AND VOTE.

    I fully support Medical Marijuana. But I am against recreational marijuana usage. There is no sensible reason to be getting “high” when one is in a “normal” state. It only perverts right and moral judgment.

      Said no one, ever.

      They should bring Hee Haw back.

      • Willy

        you can watch it on retro channels ’til your heart’s content. Just know that the really nice boobs and butts you saw have fallen way down below what they were in that day.

        • Franklin

          They were all natural women with curves and no one was complaining. We can’t have a Hee Haw today because we don’t have people developing talent in the arts. Every performer on that show was world class. Guest stars like Glen Campbell, Chet Atkins, Johnny Cash, and Mac and Buck and the band every week. You never knew who was going to walk out there. Back then we didn’t care if our neighbors were smoking marijuana. We can’t have Hee Haw today because too many people have their noses in other peoples business. We cant go back but we can learn. I take some natural gravity sag any day over a plastic bag in place of her chest.

      There’s definitely some truth in that, but you can be against using it and be for legalizing it. Being against legalization is saying that it is not a liberty (which is false) to choose to smoke cannabis. We have the rights to the pursuit of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and if cannabis is illegal- whether you like it or not- those rights are contradicted.

      • Willy

        That’s nonsense and you know it! People just want to get high. That is wrong.

      Willy, I could write on this topic for days. However you need to educate yourself. If this is your only weapon in this battle, you may want to reconsider fighting. This legalization goes much, much, much, further than people getting high. Plus people make wrong and immoral discisions daily without the use of weed.

      • Willy

        My “weapon” as it were is Truth. I spring from a foundation of Truth. And that foundation can only be established by God. God is not against treating an illness to get better. He is however against getting high and getting drunk. Why? because it perverts judgment [for one]….. and two– it is sin. I can show in the New Testament if you want….(?)

    • I fully support partially neurotoxic amphetamines that will cause them to grow an average of 2″ shorter than everyone else due to hormonal changes being given to 6-year-olds who cannot make a rationally informed decision about their medications, but I am against recreational amphetamine usage among adults who understand what they do and find them useful. There is no sensible reason to be getting “high” when one is in a “normal” state. It only enhances right and moral judgment (I’m not talking about abusers here, I’m talking about the massive pill-swapping that goes on in every high school and college in the country but doesn’t amount to addiction). The 6 year old really needs them though, he spoke up in class the other day without raising his hand. Totally unacceptable. My morals said it, so that’s what the answer must be. I just wish they’d quit doing the Bane voice.

        Sarcastic idiocy duly noted.
