Marijuana Decriminalization Headed for Ballot

By  | 

Lansing voters will see a proposal for the decriminalization of marijuana on the ballot this fall.

Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope tells News 10 Tuesday the signatures to get the issue on November's ballot have been verified.

The proposal would decriminalize possession, use and transfer of up one ounce of marijuana on private property by people 21 and older. No other city ordinances would change.

Voters in Jackson will also see the decriminalization of marijuana on the ballot in November. City council moved the issue forward earlier this month, allowing voters to decide. Mayor Martin Griffin believes it will be challenged by the Attorney General if it passes, give the language of the petition.
