Matthew Abel is hoping this week will mark history.
He is part of a coalition of organizations that helped write the language for the proposed legislation the board of canvassers will consider on Thursday.
This is the closest recreational marijuana has come to being brought to Michigan voters and the closest the state has ever been to joining the eight other states that already have it legalized.
The coalition was required to turn in 252,523 valid signatures from registered voters, but they presented more than 300,000, which is expected to qualify the proposal for a November bid.
