Push to legalize marijuana picks up steam in Michigan
NILES, Mich. -- A push to legalize marijuana is picking up steam in Michigan.
This week, a group called "The Committee for a Safer Michigan" will start collecting signatures. Members want to make it legal for anyone over 21 to have a small amount of marijuana -- without a prescription!
ABC 57 News spoke with a Niles couple today that is supporting the movement. The group said their story is an example of the problem with Michigan’s current medical marijuana law. For the purposes of this story they will be called “Jack” and “Jill”.
