Back in December,  the Bay City Commission voted 7-1 to approve an ordinance that would allow medical marijuana facilities. That was quickly shot down by Bay City Mayor Kathleen Newsham who vetoed the ordinance.

According to ABC12, last night (Tuesday) commissioners voted 8-1 to override her veto and enact the ordinance as it was approved on Dec. 18. The commission needed six votes in favor of the ordinance, a two-thirds majority, to sustain the override.

It's definitely a step in the right direction but not quite where we need to be yet. Hopefully one day we'll be able to wave the green flag like Californians did on January 1st. In case you've been living under a rock or you've just been really high, California just legalized recreational marijuana. This means anyone over the age of 21 can now light up without needing a medical card.
