 A committee of lawmakers in the Michigan House gave approval of a bill to make more changes to Michigan's marijuana laws. East Lansing OWID-Medical Marijuana attorney Mike Nichols says "the misleading piece of all this is that a major part of the proposed law requires the federal government to decriminalize marijuana." Coverage of the bills in the Detroit Free Press is linked here:
