1928 : Marijuana Outlawed in Detroit

February 24, 2018 all-day

On February 24, 1928, the use of marijuana was outlawed in Detroit. Interestingly, no state or federal restrictions were on the books at that time.

In 2012 the Detroit City Government is attempting to keep a ballot proposal to legalize small amounts of marijuana for Detroit residents off the ballot.

Statewide, Marijuana advocates are collecting signatures for a ballot to legalize marijuana in Michigan.
