Michigan Legalizes Medical Marijuana-Wisconsin to Follow?

Wisconsinites hoping to legalize medical marijuana are looking to Michigan to set an example.

A Michigan proposition letting people with serious or terminal illnesses use marijuana with a doctor's order passed with a two-thirds majority in Tuesday's election.

Michigan joins 12 other states allowing the use of so-called medical marijuana. Federal law still prohibits use of the drug in all circumstances.

Gary Storck is director of the nonprofit group Madison NORML. He says Michigan could lead the way for the other Great Lakes states.

The Wisconsin Nurses Association and the Wisconsin Public Health Association favor legalizing medical marijuana.
