An initiative to legalize cannabis has been placed on the February ballot in Montrose, Michigan. The proposal, put forth by the Coalition for a Safer Montrose, would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of cannabis for those 21 and older.
The City of Montrose recently verified that enough valid signatures were submitted to put the measure before the City Council, which voted to put it to a vote of the people. However, the Council didn’t vote in time for the issue to be placed on the November ballot; instead, it will be put to a vote in February.
Similar initiatives were approved in last month’s election in the Michigan cities of Oak Park and Hazel Park, and legalization initiatives will be voted on this November in Berkley, Saginaw and Grosse Point.
