I just emailed Michigan.gov

and filled in the request form - I asked them why legalization of marijuana for medicinal and recreational use is not on the May 5 ballot.

Couldn't hurt now, could it? Pointed out that cigarettes and alcohol are both legal and they do far more harm than marijane.

Maybe other Michiganders in DU should do the same?

which will now be approved, refused for the November 2016 ballots. Ballots for the May 5 ballot have already been printed. Medical Marijuana is already legal in Michigan.

* Legalization of recreational marijuana.

I felt like I was fighting a one-woman battle.

CNN finally convinced me that the weed is not only safe, it's good, and our State is still putting people in jail for possession, not to mention folks there already.

I can't wait to grow it.

have your MMJ card, and designate yourself as your caregiver. You can grow 12 plants at a time. It will cost you $180-$200 for the card - $100 to the State of Mi., and $80 to $100 for the Dr. certification. Your card is for two years.Hope this helps.
