Ferndale to vote on medical marijuana initiative

August 23, 2005, 11:18 AM

FERNDALE, Mich. (AP) -- City voters will decide in November whether to legalize medical use of marijuana.

Ferndale City Council member did not act on the proposal at a Monday meeting, sending it to the city's general election ballot, the Detroit Free Press reported.

If voters approve the initiative, Ferndale would be the third city in Michigan to allow medical marijuana use. Detroit and Ann Arbor voters approved it last year.

Ferndale Police Chief Michael Kitchen told the City Council that even if voters pass the proposal Nov. 8, his officers will enforce state laws outlawing marijuana use.
