There is a push to legalize marijuana in Michigan
At the 44th Annual Hash Bash held in Ann Arbor on April 4, 2015, State Representative Jeff Irwin (D-Ann Arbor) announced that he will push to make marijuana legal in Michigan. He says it is about economics and “we can do a better job of making sure that when people do buy and sell marijuana it happens in the appropriate time, manner and place, and do a better job of keeping out of the hands of kids.” Representative Irwin believes that the revenue generated should go to schools and possibly repairing roads and also for greater availability of substance abuse programs. Irwin claims that 50% of those recently surveyed support legalization of marijuana.
