Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

MI voters legalized recreational marijuana use for residents over the age of 21 with retail sales of the product subject to a 10 percent tax. The industry would be subject to a 10 percent tax, as well as a sales tax.

The proposal passed by a 56-44 percent margin with 93 percent of precincts reporting. Before Tuesday's vote 20 of the 50 states allow it for medical use. Within a residence, adults will be permitted to grow up to twelve marijuana plants and/or possess up to ten ounces of marijuana.

Missouri had three marijuana measures on the ballot.

It will come with a 10% tax, and will only be available to people ages 21 and older.

The North Dakota initiative was also unique in requiring "automatic expungement of the record of an individual who has a drug conviction for a controlled substance that has been legalized". He says they will now turn to helping communities opt out of having to allow retail pot businesses. Medical marijuana is legal in 31 states, as well as the nation's capital.

MI has become the first state in the Midwest to approve recreational use of marijuana. Amendment two passed. That allows doctors to prescribe medical cannabis to patients.

OH was the most recent state to legalize medical weed through a ballot initiative in October, and Vermont became the first state to bypass the polls entirely by legalizing recreational cannabis through its state legislature in January. "With such overwhelming public support for marijuana legalization, even including majorities of Republicans and older Americans, there's only so long that the federal government can continue to hold out".
