As the dust settles after the approval of Proposal 1.. pending marijuana possession cases will be re-evaluated. According to the Mason County Prosecutor Paul Spagnolia, the approximately 15 pending marijuana possession cases currently in Mason county have been pulled. Each case will be reviewed individually on its own merits in order to determine how that particular case will proceed from here.
"Certainly some will be dismissed but others will not," according to the prosecutor. He says that "Certainly the passage of proposal one has given the residents of Michigan legal access to a powerful drug and that he does not believe the availability of recreational marijuana will make Michigan a better place."
Until the review of current pending cases is undertaken, there are no more details on what will happen with these cases at this time.
