It's really happening! The Michigan Board of Canvassers approved our petition for a state ballot initiative that would regulate marijuana like alcohol. Petitions distribution will begin in the coming days. The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol (CRMLA) now has 180 days to collect just over 250,000 valid signatures needed to place the issue on the November 2018 ballot.
MPP is currently talking with advocates, patients, business owners, and activists across the state as we explore working with coalition to put an adult use marijuana legalization and regulation measure on Michigan’s November 2018 ballot. Our December listening tour across the southern part of the state was a success, and we were impressed with the thoughtful comments and questions you had. Thank you to all who participated!
Late December 2016: MPP will form a drafting advisory committee composed of stakeholders in Michigan and experts in marijuana policy who will volunteer their time to help draft the initiative. This committee will meet regularly and will have an opportunity to review several drafts of the initiative before it is finalized.
