Kalamazoo Medical Marijuana Dispensary Petition Clears for Later Ballots


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Apparently, a petition initiative to require the city of Kalamazoo to allow three medical marijuana dispensaries did collect just enough signatures to qualify, but it will have to wait until November of next year to get on the ballot.

City Clerk Scott Borling says there were about eighty illegible signatures that they counted as ineligible because they didn’t match the city’s list of registered voters.  When drive organizer Chris Chiles pointed out the discrepancies, they were recounted, but it came too late for the deadline for the fall ballot, which has already been sent to the printers.

Chiles says he may sue.  It may all be moot if the Court of Appeals ruling that dispensaries are not permitted by Michigan’s medical marijuana law is upheld by the State Supreme Court.
