Pot Proposal Will Not be on November Ballot
The East Lansing November ballot will not contain a proposal to legalize marijuana.
Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum announced Wednesday that the late addition to the ballot would cost the county thousands of dollars. She also said that absentee ballots had already been mailed.
Jeffrey Hank, the attorney heading up the charge to repeal the city's marijuana law said that he submitted many more signatures than were needed in July. He would like to allow citizens to use, possess and transfer up to an ounce of marijuana if they are 21 years of age or older.
Hank is currently protesting Byrum's decision.
Byrum said that the necessary deadlines for the proposal to be on this year's ballot were not met.
