Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states
Recreational marijuana becomes legal ten days after state election results are certified, which should happen early next month.
The proposal passed by a 56-44 percent margin with 93 percent of precincts reporting.
The compromise is more restrictive than other states' medical marijuana efforts, since patients won't be allowed to grow their own weed and can only smoke the prescribed bud under certain circumstances.
It will come with a 10% tax, and will only be available to people ages 21 and older.
State laws allowing recreational use of marijuana have spread across the United States since Colorado voters approved one in 2012. 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. Missouri became the 31st state to approve the medical use of marijuana. And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12. Any amount greater than 2.5 ounces must be stored under lock and key.
Change several current violations from crimes to civil infractions.
Proposal 1 allows marijuana to be regulated like alcohol. Its proposal also levies a 10 percent sales tax on pot sales. The state will have strong regulations in place to ensure businesses are not marketing to children.
As of late Tuesday night with 43 per cent of polls reporting, MI voters appeared to vote in favour of legalizing recreational cannabis for anyone 21 years old or older in the state, with about 57 per cent of voters approving the ballot measure while 42 per cent voted against it.
Supporters estimate proposition one will bring in roughly $130,000,000 in tax revenue each year.
