Berkley, Huntington Woods and Pleasant Ridge, Michigan Decriminalize Cannabis
Initiatives to decriminalize cannabis in the Michigan cities of Berkley, Huntingwood and Pleasant Ridge have been approved this evening, with all three garnering over 60% of the vote with a majority of the precincts reporting in.
In Berkley, polling shows the initiative at 66% support, with support at 71% in Huntingwoods, and over 80% in Pleasant Ridge. Although these numbers will change once reporting is finished, it’s an essential certainty that all three will finish above 50%.
Once these initiatives take effect, the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis will no longer be a criminal penalty for those 21 and older.
Similar initiatives are on the ballot in several other Michigan cities, though results have yet to come in.
