Bernero Looks To Decriminalize Marijuana


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero has asked the city attorney to look into letting people possess small amounts of pot in the city without getting in legal trouble, according to our media partners at the Lansing City Pulse.

It all started with a phone call to George Heartwell, the mayor of Grand Rapids, one of four cities across the state to decriminalize marijuana.

Once Benero heard that Heartwell thought it was the time to change the ways with marijuana, the mayor asked newly hired Janene McIntyre to look into Grand Rapids rules to see if they comply with sate and federal law and should Lansing adopt a similar law.

The entire article is expected to run Wednesday in the City Pulse.@

Nick Perreault is looking into this further, as well.
