Cannabis communities across the state may want to pay more attention to State Sen. Betty Jean Alexander.

Alexander is the politician who seemingly came out of nowhere to snag a seat in Lansing, representing the west side of Detroit and some surrounding suburban communities.

Despite the advisory opinion that Michigan should not establish a per se level of THC as intoxication, a few weeks ago Alexander proposed a law (SB 347) to amend the Michigan vehicle code that would set that level at 5 ng/ml. You can find the proposed changes on Page 8 of the document here, also embedded below.
Alexander is a newbie to state government, but she seems to be ready to make a name for herself with this effort.

Too bad it's on the backs of marijuana users.
