Traverse City, Ferndale voters favor medical marijuana
November 09, 2005
The northern Michigan city's proposal doesn't make marijuana legal but declares possession, use or delivery of the drug by a medical patient the "lowest law enforcement priority of the city."
A similar proposal in Ferndale passed 1,894 to 1,222.
But state law prohibits possession and use of marijuana, raising doubts about the legality of the municipal ordinances.
