Michigan: Over 100,000 Signatures Collected on Marijuana Legalization Initiative in Less than Two Months

In less than two months supporters of a Michigan initiative to legalize marijuana have collected over 100,000 signatures.

The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol must collect 252,523 signatures by May 30th of next year in order to put their marijuana legalization initiative to a vote of the people during the November, 2018 election. They are clearly on track to reach this goal, having already collected 102,425 signature in less than a two-month period (the group began collecting signatures in late May).

“The support we are seeing across the state has been fantastic” says Josh Hovey, a spokesperson for the coalition. “We are getting calls and emails everyday from people who understand that marijuana prohibition is a massive failure and asking where they can sign and how they can help. If we can keep up this momentum, we will have all signatures in four months rather than the six months required by state law.”
