Berkley Is Next Michigan City Expected To Vote On Easing Marijuana Penalties

"Just behind those people who live in suburban Wayne county, 55 percent of voters in Mid Michigan support the polls only 42 percent oppose," said Shields.

MICHIGAN: Volunteers who’ve walked the streets of Berkley for the last month said Monday they plan to turn in about 700 signatures today aimed at putting yet another marijuana-legalization question before yet another city’s voters.

By the time the door-to-door campaigns end, similar questions likely will appear on ballots in nearly 20 communities around the state, from Utica to the U.P., said leaders of Safer Michigan, a Detroit-based nonprofit group coordinating the far-flung petition drives.

Campaigners said they’re hard at work in Berkley’s neighbors, Huntington Woods and Pleasant Ridge. They expect that the three towns’ November ballots will ask residents: Should the city allow “the use, possession or transfer” of up to 1 ounce of marijuana on private property that is “not used by the public” by those 21 and older.
