As part of an ongoing cannabis law reform effort in Michigan, voters in three more Michigan cities will soon have the chance to do what their elected officials regularly fail to do: pass laws that decriminalize a small amount of cannabis for personal adult use.

The Detroit Free Press reports today that three Michigan cities-Ferndale, Jackson and likely Lansing-will have binding voter initiatives that effectively decriminalize cannabis possession in these three municipalities.

Numerous other cities in Michigan have already adopted decriminalization, as have 17 other states overall, and as former MI NORML president and current chair of Coalition for Safer Michigan Tim Beck notes in the article that passing these three decriminalization ballots will likely be the ‘tipping point’ for state legislators in Michigan to pass state-wide reforms.

Let’s hope so!

    Decriminalization is a cruel joke. It doesn’t take the “criminal” out of anything, it just softens it a little, usually ending in some kind of charge and still costs money. Decriminalization = nada.

  2. Question: What are the other cities in Michigan that have already decriminalized marijuana?
