In a recent issue of the Fifth Estate (April 1) it was reported that State Senator Roger Craig of Dearborn had introduced a bill into the Michigan Senate that would exempt marijuana from the application of the general “narcotics” act.
While this was an accurate report and reflective of a new climate regarding public opinion toward the use of “drugs” we hope people are still being careful. In a letter to this paper Sen. Craig stated, “Nothing significant will happen in this area (of legislation) until January.”
Persons interested in changing Michigan’s archaic “narcotic” laws would do well to find out who their state legislators are and begin showing their support of Senator Craig’s bill. Lots of letters can do wonders with impending bills.
