MARIJUANA QUESTIONS LIKELY FOR NOVEMBER BALLOT


Looks like voters in Port Huron could see a pro-marijuana initiative on the November ballot.  Laura Rigby is with the Coalition for a Safer Port Huron, which is proposing to decriminalize the use or possession of small amounts of the drug within city limits, and she says petitions to place the issue on the fall ballot were turned into the City Clerk's office this week.  Rigby says about 18-hundred signed petitions were turned in, with them needing only just over 1-thousand.  Port Huron City Clerk Sue Child says they're still processing the petition signatures, but initial assessments are that there would be enough to put the item before the voters.  Marijuana reform activists were pushing for ballot initiatives in nearly a couple dozen Michigan cities this year, including Port Huron, in order to decriminalize the use or possession of small amounts of marijuana.
