Republican lawmakers introduced bills Thursday that would undo some of the provisions in two of the ballot proposals overwhelmingly passed by voters on Nov. 6.
One bill, introduced by Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, R-West Olive, would prohibit homegrown marijuana that was part of the legalization ballot proposal that passed by a 56-44 margin. That provision allows anyone over the age of 21 to grow up to 12 marijuana plants for personal use in their homes.
Meekhof said Thursday that he wants to prohibit home grows as a way to stop pot from flooding neighborhoods across the state.
“People don’t get to make alcohol and serve it in unregulated bars to anyone they want to. Homegrown marijuana is basically unregulated,” he said. “It should be in some regulated form, so we have consistency and safety. It’s a mind-altering substance like alcohol. It should be somehow controlled.”
