Michigan Voters Legalize Marijuana

Midterms and marijuana: These 4 states will vote on legal pot

The latter is the only state that does not authorize marijuana stores.

Utah voters also gave the nod to medical marijuana.

MI would be the first U.S. Midwest state to allow its residents to purchase and consumer cannabis legally.

MI is going to have the first legal recreational marijuana in the Midwest.

"Thanks to the unflagging efforts of patients and advocates, Missourians who could benefit from medical marijuana will soon be able to use it without fear of being treated like criminals", said Matthew Sweich, deputy director of the Marijuana Policy Project. It would, however, have legalized cannabis for residents 21-years-old and over, and expunged old convictions for cannabis possession. On a more municipal level, voters in various cities across OH weighed questions related to decriminalization and minimizing punishments so that possession is treated like a traffic ticket instead of a misdemeanor.

In Florida, 63 percent voted to pass a measure that restores voting rights to 1.5 million former convicts. Any amount greater than 2.5 ounces must be stored under lock and key.

Proposal 1 establishes a legal framework for licensing and regulating marijuana businesses in MI including cultivators and dispensaries.

Change several current violations from crimes to civil infractions. The initiative requires all marijuana and marijuana products to be tested for safety and includes strict tracking requirements to ensure that marijuana is not diverted into the unregulated market.

People 21 and older will be allowed to carry 2.5 ounces of marijuana on their person, store 10 ounces at home and grow up to 12 plants per residence.

Under Proposal 1, Michigan's state government will create regulations on: labeling and packaging of marijuana and marijuana products; and the advertising and marketing of marijuana, marijuana products, and marijuana businesses.

Supporters estimate proposition one will bring in roughly $130,000,000 in tax revenue each year.

This vote to legalize recreational marijuana in MI comes just 10 years after MI voters approved medical marijuana.
