Backers of a ballot question to legalize recreational marijuana in Michigan are approaching the finish line
By Michael Bachara
Hundreds of petition circulators in Michigan have been busy collecting signatures for the legalization of cannabis.
Josh Hovey, the spokesman for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol, says the group is pushing forward and their petition drive will collect its 300,000 signature in the coming days.
"We're around 80 percent toward our goal, which puts us at about 280,000 signatures. If we can keep our fundraising up the we'll be pushing 300k very soon and wrapping up the signatures in the next month," Hovey told Hemp News.
