Michigan: Enough Signatures Collected to Put Cannabis Legalization Initiative to a Vote

michiganOver 300,000 signatures have been garnered on a Michigan Initiative to legalize recreational cannabis for those 21 and older. This is more than the 253,000 signatures required to put the measure to a vote of the people this November.

Despite having enough signatures, MILegalize plans to continue collecting signatures through to their June 1st deadline, to assure that enough signatures are valid (from registered Michigan voters).

“We have to overachieve that number,” says MILegalize Chairman Jeffrey Hank, speaking of the 253,000 signature requirement; “because we are sending a clear message that Michigan is ready to lead on civil rights, job growth, education, and better roads.”

“We are independent”, notes Hank. “This is a true grassroots movement that stands for more than cannabis reform. We are citizens seeking common-sense policies and dedicated to preserving democracy in Michigan and making Michigan great”.

MILegalize verifies every signature for voter eligibility and checks for duplication, and has two professional signature collection firms out on Michigan streets gathering signatures that are able to increase production with adequate resources.

  1. I can not wait to see the huge growth in economy in Michigan when we go legal by next year. Michigan is going to crush this number and we will be legal by January 1st, 2017. The jobs this will bring to the state will be phenomenal and also the tax revenue it is going to create is going to be out of this world. Vote it through Michigan, let’s do this!!!!!!!

  2. What the deuce? Come on Texas, you money loving state!!! Don’t you see the financial winfall legalization could do for us? Michigan sees it!!!!

  3. Milegalize doesn’t mess with the 2008 MMMA except that it allows dispensaries to finally gain a firm foothold, and stops police and prosecutors from claiming concentrates are still illegal.

  4. Thats legalization their way like they did in Washington state and fucked up the already instated medical programs for the government to make a killing off the tax revenue and screw the medical patients, and take away everything people have fought for? Screw that kind of legality!

  5. My fiancé was just diagnosed with Brest cancer and is looking into legal marijuana as a way to ease the pain of chemo. Make it legal for those who need it and those who won’t abuse it or use it as a way to grow it just for monitary gain.
