Momentum is building for recreational marijuana legalization in Michigan.
A new poll has found that 56% of likely voters in the state said they would support a constitutional amendment allowing the use of cannabis by adults 21 and over, according to the Detroit News. Just 36% oppose cannabis legalization in Michigan, while 8% said they haven’t decided.
The results come after a pair of competing marijuana legalization measures in the state received the green light last week to begin collecting signatures.
The two dueling campaigns – the Michigan Cannabis Coalition (MCC) and the Michigan Comprehensive Cannabis Law Reform Committee (MCCLRC) – each must turn in at least 252,523 signatures of registered Michigan voters in six months to make the 2016 general election ballot.
A third potential campaign is also in the works by a group called the Michigan Responsibility Council, but so far that organization has not turned in proposed initiative language to the state.
