The following is from our Executive Director,Mr. Tim Beck:
My friends, it is a wonderful day here in Michigan.
A medical mj bill was introduced in the Michigan House of Representatives today, by State Representative LaMar Lemmons III (D-Detroit) whom I am proud to say, is MY very own state representative. At this time, we have a total of 8 co-sponsors, and we hope to ad a few more in the next 48 hours.
On December 2nd, the bill will be assigned a number and formally referred to committee, either Judiciary or hopefully, Government Operations.
The possibility also exists, that we will find a member of the State Senate, to introduce a companion bill.
Anyway, some "thank yous" are in order:
1. To the various Michigan NORML activists "on the ground" who worked their rear ends off to pass medical mj initiatives in Detroit, Ann Arbor, Ferndale and Traverse City.
2.To our very good friends at the Marijuana Policy Project, for providing model legislation, technical support and money to fund the four ballot initiatives noted above.
3. To the NORML PAC, and some other very generous persons on the ARO list (you know who you are) who answered my call last year, to donate money to Representative Lemmons election campaign. Our good friend LaMar, was NOT an incumbent, and was running for an open House seat and he won.
Your generosity and willingness to take a risk, was duly noted by this fine brother.
Will keep you posted, and again, my humble thanks and good wishes to one and all.

GENESIS 1; 11,12: And God said,"Let the earth burst forth with every sort of grass and seed-bearing plant." And so it was,and God was pleased.
GENESIS 1; 29,31: "And look! I have given you the seed-bearing plants throughout the earth for your food." Then God looked over all that he had made,and it was excellent in every way.
