Pro Pot Proposal Starting in Michigan

By  | 

Supporters of marijuana are once again trying to get Michigan to legalize the drug.

A group in suburban Detroit called Win-the-War has started circulating petitions for a proposal to regulate marijuana the same way liquor is regulated.

It hopes to collect 320,000 signatures by October 1 and wants to see the proposal go to voters in 2006 state elections.

Activists say legalizing the drug would cut crime rates and protect kids.

But one prosecutor says it would not keep pot out of the hands of children, just as liquor laws don't always keep kids from booze.
