BERKLEY, Michigan — Voters in six Michigan communities have passed marijuana decriminalization measures, while those in five others have rejected similar proposals.

Eleven Michigan communities had marijuana proposals on the ballot Tuesday.

Unofficial results show the measures passing in Berkley, Huntington Woods, Mount Pleasant, Pleasant Ridge, Port Huron and Saginaw.

Voters defeated marijuana measures in Clare, Frankfort, Harrison, Lapeer and Onaway.

Voters in Hazel Park and Oak Park passed measures in August. Voters in Ferndale, Jackson and Lansing approved decriminalization proposals last year.

The decriminalization measures put the communities in potential conflict with state law. Michigan bans marijuana use and possession unless it's medical marijuana.
