A Petition to Amend Michigan's Constitution to End the Prohibition of Cannabis was Approved
A new Petition was approved by the Michigan Canvasing Board to completely eliminate Prohibition from Cannabis. Abrogate Prohibition in Michigan is back after failing to get the required amount of signatures to get on the ballot in 2016. This year's language is almost identical and has been characterized as the “Most Radical Legalization Platform” in Michigan, if not, the country as a whole.
Here is a link to the Facebook Page of the current campaign.
There, you will find a link there for anyone who would like to donate money to Abrogate Prohibition in Michigan.
Here is the proposed Constitutional Amendment:
AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION
This proposal would add a new section 28 to Article 1 of the State Constitution to read as follows:
(1) The agricultural, personal, recreational, medicinal, commercial, industrial and other uses of Cannabis in any form by any person shall be lawful activity.
(2) All prohibitions on the use of cannabis in any form by any persons are hereby null and void.
(3) Use of Cannabis shall include, but not be limited to:
The possession, consumption, growing, manufacture, delivery, treatment, purchase, sale, transfer, and or transport of any plant, seed, flower, leaf, mixture, derivative, extract, product and or preparation of any part of any cannabis plant for all personal, recreational, religious, medicinal, research, development, educational, commercial and industrial purposes within the state of Michigan.
(4) No excise tax, no fines, no fees, no regulation to diminish the use of Cannabis shall be levied or allowed.
(5) This amendment shall be retroactive.
(6) No agency of the state shall receive monies from the federal government or any other entity to be used in the promotion of continued prohibitions of Cannabis.
(7) Severability: If any section, subsection or part of this amendment is for any reason held to be invalid or unconstitutional, the remaining sections, subsections, or parts of those sections shall not be affected, but will remain in full force and effect.
