Sign a Petition to Legalize Marijuana in Michigan
While you are looking at cars and dining at the Golden Gate Café,
please take the time to sign a petition to allow voters to decide in November
2016 to legalize the use of profits from Marijuana. Legal retail sales from the
plant will fix the roads, fund the Schools, and finance public pensions at a
local level. People who are currently incarcerated
for small amounts of Marijuana will be thrown out of jail, kicked off probation,
and have their criminal records expunged if this becomes the law.

by law enforcement officials. On giving second chances
to felons, if it is good for Martha Stewart, if it is good for elected leaders
in Michigan, then any felon in Michigan deserves a second chance.
time to curtail the felony hater aide laws in Lansing and get some common sense.
The cement used for the jails belong in the roads filling potholes and fixing
bridges in Wayne County instead of sitting at an uncompleted jail. So stop by and make it your mission, to sign
Happy Cruise Weekend to all of you from District 2 in Detroit,
and we hope
to see you on the Avenue.
