Granholm Against Medical Pot
(2008-03-04)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A proposal to legalize marijuana for
medical purposes does not have the support of Governor Jennifer
Granholm.
Granholm says she is not in favor of opening the door to
legalization of marijuana.
A citizen-led measure that would legalize marijuana for some
medical purposes is pending in the state Legislature. If lawmakers
don't approve the measure within 40 days, the proposal will be
placed on the November ballot.
The Michigan initiative would allow patients to grow and use
small amounts of marijuana for relief from pain associated with
cancer, AIDS and other diseases.
A doctor's approval or recommendation would be required to use
the drug.
