A ballot initiative to legalize cannabis for recreational use in Michigan is gaining momentum as the group raises more money and claims to have gathered more than half of the signatures needed to put the issue before voters in 2018.

The proposed law would decriminalize the possession of 2.5 ounces of marijuana in public and allow for up 12 plants to be grown per household.

The Coalition to Regulation Marijuana Like Alcohol announced yesterday that Question 2, which would legalize and regulate the production and sale of marijuana in Nevada, has been endorsed by the state’s largest labor union – Culinary Workers Union Local 226, which represents more than 57,000 workers.

“We are excited and proud to have the support of the Culinary Union,” said Joe Brezny, spokesperson for the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol. “Their support demonstrates that the working people of Nevada want to take marijuana out of the criminal market and shift production and sales into regulated, tax-paying businesses. Some powerful individuals and groups are attempting to scare Nevadans into keeping marijuana prohibition in place. The people who care about good jobs, safer communities, and money for schools believe that voting Yes on Question 2 to regulate marijuana is the far more sensible choice.”

Many elected officials expressed enthusiasm about the endorsement.
