M Live – Voters in three separate Michigan communities will decide Tuesday whether local police should arrest recreational marijuana users. Ballot proposals in Lansing, Jackson and Ferndale would legalize the use or possession of up to an ounce of marijuana on private property by anyone 21 years or older. Organizers are predicting success in all three cities and hope ballot box victories will spur state lawmakers to act on bipartisan legislation that would decriminalize marijuana in Michigan, where small-time possession remains illegal under state law.
