Groups Continue Push to Legalize Recreational Pot

The effort to legalize recreational marijuana in Michigan continues as two groups are pushing forward with efforts to collect enough signatures to make the statewide ballot.

MiLegalize is backing a ballot proposal that would tax retail pot sales at 10-percent and allow residents to grow up to 12 plants at home.

The group has to collect 252,000 signatures to make the November ballot and MiLegalize spokesman Jeffrey Hank says they have groups working festivals, farmer markets and concerts to get those names.

Another pot ballot proposal would allow the state legislature to set the sales tax.

The group supporting that initiative, Michigan Cannabis Coalition, will be collecting signatures at the Snoop Dog concert in Lansing this weekend.
