Lansing mayor continues marijuana legalization push

LANSING (WKZO) -- Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero continues his push to legalize recreational use of small amounts of marijuana.

"My personal view is that marijuana prohibition has been a complete failure that has mainly succeeded in filling up our prisons with minor drug offenders at an extremely high cost to the taxpayers of this state," Bernero stated recently.

Bernero says he is not surprised that a petition supporting a proposal to legalize small quantities of marijuana has garnered enough signatures to send the issue to the voters this fall.
