SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

The marijuana debate is heating up in Michigan.  Some lawmakers are leading a campaign to reduce the penalties for smoking pot.

Right now, if you get caught, you could face up to a $500 fine and three months in jail, but under this new proposal, offenders would get just a $25 ticket for their first offense.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panel to discuss was state Representative Jeff Irwin, a Democrat from Ann Arbor who is leading the charge, and Judge Jodi Debbrecht.

    Every day, those who live and work in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn drive and bike and walk across their canal, growing a little more accustomed to but no less disgusted by its scent and appearance. Once the busiest canal in the United States, the Gowanus now bears the distinction as perhaps the most polluted body of water in the nation. No one knows exactly how polluted because few have summoned enough courage to dive into its murky depths to investigate.
