MI voters legalize recreational marijuana use

MI voters have approved the legalization of recreational marijuana.

Michigan, which already had medical marijuana, became the first Midwestern state to fully legalize pot.

"Western and Northeastern states have led the way on legalizing marijuana, but the victory in MI powerfully demonstrates the national reach of this movement", Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a press release.

Measures legalizing recreational marijuana are being considered during the midterm elections by voters in MI and North Dakota, potentially adding either to the list of nine states with similar laws now in place.

To learn more about the proposal and the effects of legalizing marijuana, read Mark Peterson's in-depth report. 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. Additionally, the initiative legalizes the cultivation of industrial hemp, which can be used to make textiles, biofuels and foods. On Tuesday night, just one passed. During any 14-day period, a state-licensed cardholder could purchase as much as 2 ounces of marijuana.

Permit retail sales of marijuana and edibles subject to a 10% tax, dedicated to implementation costs, clinical trials, schools, roads, and municipalities where marijuana businesses are located. The proposal also creates an additional license for marijuana "microbusinesses" for grows of up to 150 plants, and individuals can grow up to 12 marijuana plants per household.

Before Tuesday's vote, 22 American states had adopted comprehensive medical marijuana programs. The bill appears to have support from a number of key stakeholders in the state, from advocates, policymakers and the Mormon church.
