A Great Victory for Medical Cannabis Legalization
This decade saw a change in focus for marijuana activists in the Ann Arbor area and across the state. For more than two decades the struggle focused on the passing, implementation and protection of medical marijuana legal initiatives. Although medical marijuana access and use was overwhelmingly approved by Michigan voters in 2004 (74%) the struggle with local governments to keep it accessible continued for more than a decade. Eventually Ann Arbor’s council and city attorney bowed to the voters will and dispensaries became part of the landscape in Michigan. This decade also brought recognition to Chuck’s dedication to the cause in the form of the 2014 High Times Lifetime Achievement Award.
