CLINTON TOWNSHIP/MACOMB TOWNSHIP — On Nov. 6, Michigan residents passed Proposal 1 by a vote of 56 percent to 44 percent to make recreational marijuana legal.

The proposal asked residents to authorize and legalize possession, use and cultivation of marijuana products by individuals who are at least 21 years of age and older. It allows individuals to grow up to 12 marijuana plants for personal consumption and impose a 10-ounce limit for marijuana kept at residences.

One group that is concerned with how the proposal will affect students is the Chippewa Valley Schools Coalition for Youth and Families.
