Proponents of decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana are one step closer to making it a reality in Jackson.
On Tuesday a group of supporters lead by leaders from the Jackson County Compassion Club and the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Law, or NORML, filed their petition with more than 500 signatures at the Jackson City Clerk's office.
If passed by voters in November, Jackson would be joining the ranks of several other Michigan cities that have already passed similar ordinances including Grand Rapids, Detroit and Kalamazoo.
WILX's Josh Sidorowicz will have more tonight on the proposal and which city could be next tonight on News 10 at 5.
