Proposals Pass to Allow Medical Marijuana and Stem Cell Research

Proposals allowing stem cell research and the regulated use of medical marijuana passed yesterday.

Both statewide ballot proposals passed in Michigan, allowing the use of medical marijuana and stem cell research. Proposal 1–legalizing the regulated use of medical marijuana–passed 63% to 37%. Proposal 2 passed by a much closer 53% to 47% margin.

In Ottawa County, voters also overturned a 1976 law that banned the sale of beer and wine on Sundays.
