Voters in Flint, Michigan, voted to okay the use of medical marijuana by a margin of 62% to 38% Tuesday. Flint becomes the fifth Michigan city to approve such a measure, and while medical marijuana remains illegal under both state and federal law, the Flint vote should only add to momentum to take the issue statewide.

Sponsored by Michigan NORML and the Flint Compassionate Care Coalition, the effort was also aided by assistance from the Marijuana Policy Project and the national NORML office.

Flint now joins Detroit, Ann Arbor, Ferndale and Traverse City as Michigan cities where voters have approved the use of medical marijuana.
