Detroit residents may soon be voting on whether to legalize marijuana in their city, The Detroit Free Press reports. On Friday, the Michigan Supreme Court cleared the way for a referendum question that could make Detroit the state’s first city to legalize the green stuff. Voters can expect to see the question–asking them to legalize possession and use of up to 1 ounce of the drug, on private property, by those 21 and older–during a Aug. 7 primary election, the paper reports. The court decision came after a nearly two-year legal battle that pitted city officials against marijuana supporters, including those who use the drug as medicine. Meanwhile, Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Eren Stephens told the paper that the department would adapt to legalization “if it’s handled in an appropriate way, and this is what the citizens of Detroit choose.”
