Oak Park, Hazel Park voters approve pot proposals
Eds: APNewsNow.
 HAZEL PARK, Mich. (AP) -- Voters in two Detroit-area communities have approved ballot proposals legalizing marijuana for personal use.
 
 Unofficial results posted by the Oakland County Elections Division show the measures passing Tuesday in Hazel Park and Oak Park.
 
The two were among at least 11 cities across Michigan and one county targeted by pro-marijuana activists seeking ballot initiatives to legalize or decriminalize small amounts of marijuana for personal use.
 
Last year, voters in Ferndale, Jackson and Lansing approved proposals that call on local police not to arrest people for marijuana possession if they are found with an ounce or less of the drug, are at least 21 years old and are on private property.
 
Marijuana users in those communities still face risks because state law bars marijuana use and possession unless it's medical marijuana.
