Voters Will Decide In November
Detroit City Council turned down the first chance to approve the city ordinance amendment that would decriminalize small amounts of marijuana. Instead, voters will get to decide in November. The ordinance amendment would allow anyone 21 years old or older to legally possess less than an ounce of marijuana on private property. This would amend Chapter 38 of the Detroit city code regulating controlled substances.
The ordinance amendment was initiated by the Coalition for a Safer Detroit. This is the same group that successfully got medical marijuana placed on the ballot in 2004.
