Marijuana legalization campaign seeks more time

Later today, theBoard of State Canvasserswill consider changing a rule that would give more time to a marijuana legalization petition.

Jeff Hank leads theMichigan Comprehensive Cannabis Law Reform Initiative Committee.He wants the Board of Canvassers to ease a 180-day limit for petition signatures.

“We want to make sure we submit accurate, not fraudulent … signatures,” says Hank, “and in order to do that, we’re going to need a little bit more time.”

Hank says they’re still asking circulators to turn in their petitions by December 21. He says the campaign wants to see how close it is to raising the quarter-million needed to get on the ballot next year.
