GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The voter approved law that decriminalizes marijuana in Grand Rapids has hit another road block.
Now the city attorney has filed a legal motion to stop the law from taking effect.
The city charter amendment was approved by voters last December. It makes possession of small amounts of marijuana a civil infraction instead of a misdemeanor.
Now the group that led the petition effort says the city attorney is trying to undermine the will of the people. They're urging people to write and call city leaders and urge them to ask the city attorney to withdraw her motion.
