Michigan Voters Legalize Marijuana

Brian Acker

MI voters on Tuesday approved legalized marijuana for recreational use, NBC News projected, as 58 percent of the state's residents chose "yes" on "Proposal 1", with 55.7 percent of the vote tallied.

A ballot measure in North Dakota would make it legal for residents 21 or older to grow, possess and use marijuana in whatever quantity they want. With 79 per cent of polls reporting, almost 61 per cent voters in the state voted against the legalization of recreational marijuana use for those 21 and older. In both Utah and Missouri, voters legalized marijuana for medical purposes ― the 31st and 32nd states to approve medical cannabis. Under the measure, adults can be in possession of 2.5 ounces of marijuana, a provision similar to the state's medical marijuana law that was approved in 2008.

Utah voters also chose to legalize medical use of marijuana for people with qualifying illnesses, with about 56 per cent in favour and almost half of the state's polls reporting. The initiative charges the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs with creating a licensing system for commercial production and distribution, subject to a 10 percent tax on retail sales. That revenue will be used for health care services for veterans. The measure would ban the smoking of marijuana but does allow vaping, marijuana-infused edibles and other means of consumption. Residents would be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants at their home without a license or purchase pot from a licensed business.

MI would be the first U.S. Midwest state to allow its residents to purchase and consumer cannabis legally. In Utah, meanwhile, Gov. Gary Herbert said he would ask lawmakers to work on a bill legalizing medical marijuana if voters reject Proposition 2 at the polls Tuesday. If more than one measure passes, the proposal with the largest affirmative vote will become law.
