Michigan Likely to Vote on Medical Marijuana in November

Michigan patients with chronic or debilitating disease could legally possess and use marijuana under a proposal likely to go before state voters in November.

A state elections panel today certified petitions containing 377,975 signatures backing the plan, well over the 304,000 minimum needed to put the initiative before voters if the Legislature fails to act upon it within the next 40 days.

The Michigan Coalition for Compassionate Care, the group which circulated the petitions, wants to allow those with serious illnesses to obtain a doctor's authorization to cultivate up to 12 marijuana plants and possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana without fear of prosecution.

About a dozen states nationally allow the use of marijuana for medical purposes under some circumstances.
