WLNS.com reports that Lansing City Clerk Chris Swope has deemed a petition opposing the city's medical marijuana ordinance did not collect enough valid signatures to repeal the ordinance. As a result, the ordinance recently passed by Lansing City Council is now in effect.

The number of valid signatures is reported to be 3,899. The Lansing City Charter requires there to be a signature count equal to or greater than 5 percent of the city's registered voters.
