Flint to Vote on Marijuana Decriminalization in November
I've always felt that in my life time, weed will be legalized. The possibility of that happening seems to be getting closer, as Flint residents will have a chance to vote on the decriminalization of marijuana this November.
There are a lot of arguments to be made regarding marijuana, the biggest of which is, should it be legal? Pro-pot enthusiasts certainly think so and this November Flint residents will vote to see if they agree. Flint's new Emergency Financial Manager, Ed Kurtz has approved the ballot initiative that will put the issue on the poll card and let Flint residents decide if they want the drug decriminalized.
If passed, Flint citizens over the age of 19 would be able to possess up to one ounce of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia on private property. Obviously, weed would remain illegal under federal and state law.
I have to say, I think it's a good idea. Obviously, Flint has bigger fish to fry in the grand scheme of things and while marijuana is still a drug, it's not nearly as dangerous as others.
