MI becomes first Midwest state to legalize recreational marijuana

In the 2018 midterm elections, four states voted on various stages of legalization, whether medical or recreational.

The group Healthy and Productive Michigan has spoken out against Proposal One in the past. He and many supporters have been pushing this proposal for two years.

"I have met a ton of people in our community that use cannabis recreationally, but they will never admit it to the people they know", Cooper said. "The data from the nine other states to have legalized marijuana made clear that regulation and taxation are a better solution".

The proposition to legalize recreational marijuana received 56 percent support.

Create a state licensing system for marijuana businesses and allow municipalities to ban or restrict them. Violations of the law would result in civil infractions or criminal charges, depending on the severity of the offense.

Voters in North Dakota rejected Measure 3 by a margin of 41 percent in favor to 59 against.

In Missouri, voters will be asked to chose between three separate proposals legalizing medical marijuana to varying degrees. It would have also expunged past and current convictions related to cannabis.

Proposal 1 allows marijuana to be regulated like alcohol.

Current state law, according to a sheet explaining the proposition from the Utah Lieutenant Governor's office, requires that by January 1, 2019, Utah ensures "that cannabis is grown in the state and can be processed into medicinal form" and also that the state "establish a state facility to sell the cannabis that has been processed into a medicinal form". "It is worth noting the first legalization initiative we ran in Colorado in 2006 received about 41 percent, and it wasn't much longer before we crossed the goal line".

Now after Tuesday's general election, MI is the 10th state to approve a measure to legalize recreational marijuana, and the first in the Midwest.

- Impose a 10-ounce limit for marijuana kept at residences and require amounts over 2.5 ounces be secured in locked containers.

In Utah, despite the machinations of the Mormon Church and the state's Republican political establishment, which sought to blunt support for Proposition 2 by promising to pass some sort of medical marijuana bill later this year, voters weren't willing to wait.

Utah voters also gave the nod to medical marijuana. "We hope lawmakers will implement the measure efficiently and effectively to ensure qualified patients can gain access to their medicine as soon as possible". The Proposition would legalize cannabis for medical purposes for people with qualifying illnesses. Doctors can prescribe cannabis products for various symptoms, and patients can either buy it or grow it at home.
