Michigan’s Two Largest Cities to Vote on Marijuana Decriminalization This November

Most of the media attention regarding marijuana reform this election has been focused on the state wide ballot initiatives in Colorado, Oregon and Washington State that would legalize marijuana, but there are also several important local initiatives on the ballot in Michigan. Voters in four Michigan municipalities, including the state’s most populous cities, will be deciding the fate of local marijuana reform measures.

Detroit and Grand Rapids are the two largest cities in Michigan, and Flint ranks seventh. Combined, they contain roughly 10 percent of the state’s population. Having all the initiatives win this November would not only change the local marijuana laws for roughly a million people in state but it also would send a signal that a large segment of the state no longer believes marijuana prohibition is worth continuing.
