Healthy and Productive Michigan opposes legalizing marijuana, and might file a court challenge.

The Michigan elections board has agreed there are enough petition signatures to put a proposal to legalize recreational use of marijuana on the ballot in November.

The state legislature can approve that initiative now. If it doesn’t within 40 days, then it will be on the ballot.

Maybe.

The group Healthy and Productive Michigan opposes legalizing marijuana. It might file a court challenge. Scott Greenlee heads up that group, and he joined Stateside Friday to explain why he feels legalizing recreational marijuana would be a “huge mistake.”

Listen above to hear Greenlee explain what his group is considering doing to oppose legalizing marijuana, how his group’s opposition affects the bipartisan effort to reduce the cost for imprisoning people for non-violent drug offenses, and more.
