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

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

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.

Allow individuals 21 and older to; purchase, possess and use marijuana and marijuana-infused edibles, and grow up to 12 marijuana plants for personal consumption. A similar measure in North Dakota, however, appears destined for defeat, though Legalize ND campaigners say they won't concede until all votes are counted-and if the measure does fail, they will try again in 2020, the Grand Forks Herald reports. It would, however, have legalized cannabis for residents 21-years-old and over, and expunged old convictions for cannabis possession.

In Florida, 63 percent voted to pass a measure that restores voting rights to 1.5 million former convicts.

Several states were added to the growing list of legal places to smoke marijuana.

Missouri voters opted to approve the sale of medical marijuana with a 4 per cent tax on cannabis sales with the revenue dedicated to health care services for USA veterans. We do know that the proposal's passing doesn't mean you can walk outside and buy weed at this very moment. Medical marijuana is legal in 31 states, as well as the nation's capital.

MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont.

Matthew Abel, an attorney with the Cannabis Counsel in Detroit, says there is still work to be done on marijuana laws in the state.

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.

Utah's medical marijuana legalization measure, which would allow privately owned dispensaries to sell cannabis, saw support drop in polls after state lawmakers said they had reached a compromise plan to instead allow patients to obtain cannabis from county health departments or a handful of state-approved pharmacies.
