Michigan cities have already approved two local ballot proposals legalizing the personal use and possession of marijuana for all adults in 2014, more than a dozen more cities have received enough signatures to place the issue before their voters, and almost all communities are playing fair with the rules. Almost all.
“Some of these have fallen by the wayside due to technical problems, human frailty, ” and legal issues.
The cities of Oak Park and Hazel Park offered the choice to legalize cannabis to their citizens during the August primary election, and both communities said YES. The remaining cities that qualify for the ballot will give their voters the option during the November general election.
According to Beck, these are the cities where ballot proposals to eliminate marijuana prohibition will be voted on in November:
These cities, “to the best of our knowledge and belief have all been certified for the ballot. They will all be voted on by the people in those cities in November, ” Beck announced.
“There are question marks… East Lansing, Montrose, Utica, Keego Harbor and Grosse Pointe Park were also target cities.”
Grosse Pointe Park’s campaign submitted valid signatures but experienced a technical issue with the language of the petitions. “We’re gonna be there next year, ” Beck assured listeners.
“Utica appears to be out, ” Beck said, citing an incorrect citation in the legal references used on the petition’s face, referring to the “typographical error” as a “fatal flaw.” Although a legal challenge has been proposed to answer the small city’s claim of error, Beck concedes that it is “highly unlikely” that voters will be given this option in 2014.
In Keego Harbor, not enough signatures were submitted to qualify for the 2014 ballot but petitioners promise to complete the process in 2015.
