MI voters legalize recreational marijuana

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

Missouri voters approved one of the medical cannabis measures on the ballot.

It may take a month for recreational marijuana to officially become legal in the state of MI. And Canada recently did so.

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

"Troopers that work along the state line are very cognizant of what's going on up north", said Indiana State Police Sgt. Ron Galaviz, a spokesman for the agency's Fort Wayne Post, which stretches north to the MI line. That's the kind of timeframe we could be looking at in MI. And those who return either under the influence or in possession of pot may learn the hard way that it remains illegal in Indiana.

According to Cowen Research Group, four states in particular look to have ample runway to legalize cannabis as they now have a Democratic Governor and support from either the state's House and/or Senate.

"I've got no attachment to marijuana myself, but I don't care to stand in the way of the train while it's coming down the tracks". Greenlee says these efforts have been successful in other states. "If there's going to be an economic benefit to legalize marijuana, I want it to be in MI".

The Michigan law will take effect in about a month, as the election first has to be certified by the Board of State Canvassers.

MI is significantly less restrictive than other states with legalized weed - while most others only allow residents to possess up to one ounce of bud, MI residents will be allowed to hold up to 2.5 ounces.

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

Both Missouri and Utah were won handily by President Donald Trump in the 2016 general election, but Cowen analyst Vivien Azer says that support for marijuana is becoming more bipartisan.

Long demonized as a risky drug, and still considered an illicit substance with no medical use by the federal government, marijuana is increasingly going mainstream as investors pour billions into the industry.

Voters in 37 states considered an array of intriguing ballot measures. Amendment 3 would allow doctors to prescribe weed, but would impose a 15-percent tax and ban home cultivation; and Proposition 3 would tax marijuana at 2 percent and set a list of qualifying conditions.

"I think it's clear voters across the state understand that prohibition of marijuana has failed and it's wasting millions of dollars of taxpayer resources on enforcing a failed law when law enforcement resources can be used for violent crime, the opioid epidemic, things that really impact the quality of life in our community", said Josh Hovey, a spokesperson with the 'Yes On One" campaign.
