Politics ➔ Political Sign, Yes on 1

Identifier:
2019.17.3
Description:

This political sign "Yes on 1" supported Michigan Proposal 1, the Marijuana Legalization Initiative, on the ballot in Michigan as an indirect initiated state statute on November 6, 2018. The measure was approved. Possession and use of marijuana became legal in Michigan on December 6, 2018. The measure made the Michigan State Legislature and the state Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) responsible for determining when retail sales begin. However, Proposal 1 required the department to begin accepting applications for retail stores within 12 months of the measure's effective date. As the effective date was set for December 6, 2018, LARA has until December 6, 2019, to begin accepting applications for stores. This sign is part of the Grand Rapids Public Museum's extensive Collection of political signs and memorabilia.
