Going To Pot? Lawyer Feiger Says Detroit Should 4-15-2011

Denver's already the Mile High City, but one outspoken Michigander thinks Detroit should embrace the nickname.
The Detroit Free Press reported attorney and occasional political candidate Geoffrey Fieger recommended legalizing marijuana and prostitution in the cash-strapped city during a taping of WWJ-TV's "Michigan Matters" program. The show airs at 11 a.m. Saturday.
Fieger said he could turn the city around in "five minutes" by telling police "to leave marijuana alone and don't spend one dime" enforcing laws against it or prostitution. He said such moves would attract young people and "make Detroit a fun city."
Oakland County Executive Brooks Patterson joined Fieger on the show and says those steps wouldn't fix unemployment or illiteracy.
Fieger is best known for having been assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian's attorney for many years.
