Marijuana supporters ask Michigan Supreme Court to allow legalization vote
Believers in the right for Michigan voters to decide whether or not the state should legalize recreational marijuana use for people 21 and older are taking the fight to the state's highest court.
MI Legalize, the group behind the effort to place a question about legalizing recreational marijuana use on the November 2016 ballot, filed a motion for the Michigan Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling that the state has no obligation to count all of the the submitted voter signatures.
"Immediate action is necessary so that the voters are not deprived of their right to vote" on the question in the November election, the Thursday, Aug. 25, motion submitted to the Supreme Court reads, asking for the case to be expedited.

Nashville Could Be On Its Way to Decriminalizing Marijuana
Although support for marijuana reform has historically been less than favorable in the state of Tennessee, a few city council members in Nashville have taken leadership on the issue by introducing a modest proposal aimed at eliminating the criminal penalties associated with minor pot possession.
On Tuesday, the council puts its initial seal of approval on a measure that would make the possession or casual exchange of up to a half-ounce of weed punishable with a $50 fine rather than jail. The measure, which was brought to the table by Metro Councilman Dave Rosenberg and two others, also comes with a secondary option that would allow the offender to pay off his or her debt to society through 10 hours of community service.
