(MI) - Light up, but don't drink up. Those were voters' verdicts in neighboring Ferndale and Oak Park.
A Ferndale proposal to allow the medical use of marijuana passed, 1,894-1,222. And a proposal in Oak Park to allow sales of alcohol by the glass, according to unofficial results, failed 3,184-1,869 with all but some of the absentee ballots counted.
With the passing of its proposal, Ferndale joins Detroit and Ann Arbor, which in 2004 approved allowing marijuana for medical use.
