Bill Would Decriminalize Marijuana in Michigan

A bill to decriminalize marijuana for recreational use in Michigan will be introduced in the state House of Representatives, Michigan Radio reports. State Representative Jeff Irwin (D–Ann Arbor) will introduce a bill to lessen the penalty for recreational pot use. Detroit and Grand Rapids have already decriminalized pot. A 2012 poll shows Michigan voters are evenly split on legalizing recreational marijuana. Washington State and Colorado voters approved recreational pot use last year.

Trevor, anything having to do with marijuana -- whether it's about medical marijuana or recreational marijuana -- is important to people with HIV/AIDS since so many of us depend on it to ease our symptoms.

I don't see HIV, AIDS, or POZ discussed anywhere in this article. So why was it posted to POZ magazine's website? There are TONS of exciting, new, and important headlines in the world of HIV-related progress and yet, you guys consistently make marijuana a priority.

I totally think that this is being done in the wrong way, and have stated so many times to my rep and senator. Even if the state makes it legal, it is still going to be illegal on the Federal level. We need to STOP NOW all states making it legal in there state and go to the Federal level to make it legal,at least for those who think it is their only way to reduce pain which is a totally untrue. I don't want it legal because of all the problems it will cause in the end.
