A petition to make marijuana legal in the city of Frankfort has collected enough signatures for the upcoming November election.
Kim Kidder, F rankfort City Clerk , confirmed that the signatures are valid and the issue is now up to voters.
I f passed, it would allow adults 21-years or older to possess 1-ounce or less of cannabis on private property within city limits.
T he backer of the petition is Reverend Steven B. Thompson . He thinks that the illegality of marijuana now takes away from people's civil rights.
Rev. Thompson sees no harm in using something natural, as his view is: "We do not manufacture a drug. We grow a plant."
A similar petition will be on the ballot in Presque Isle County in the city of Onway and also in Oakland County in the cities of Oak Park and Hazel Park.
F rankfort residents will be voting on this petition on November 4th.
