Medical Marijuana May be on Michigan Ballot
November 20, 2007
The issue of medical marijuana may soon be on the ballot for Michigan voters. That's because a coalition supporting its use, under the advice of a doctor, has just turned in nearly 500,000 signatures collected during a petition drive.
The group called the Michigan coalition for compassionate care says the use of marijuana for ill patient treatment shouldn't be met with arrest or jail time.
To qualify for the ballot, just over 300,000 of those signatures have to be valid.
