Michigan Says Yes, ND Says No to Recreational Pot

  • Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

MI voters overwhelming favored the legalization of recreational marijuana, but that doesn't mean you can pull out a victory cigar... or blunt, just yet. Medical marijuana is legal in 31 states, as well as the nation's capital.

Instead of one ballot initiative to legalize marijuana, there were three - each with different marijuana sales tax percentages and allocating that tax revenue to different locations.

As I wrote yesterday, four states had cannabis-related measures on the ballot-two with medical programs (Missouri and Utah), and two with adult-use recreational (Michigan and North Dakota).

MI is going to have the first legal recreational marijuana in the Midwest.

There are now 10 states, along with Washington, D.C., that have legalized recreational marijuana.

Ten days after that certification, people age 21 or older will be allowed to have, use and grow the drug, but the process of establishing regulations for its retail sale could take about two years.

Sessions was a major foe of marijuana legalization, moving last January to rescind an Obama-era policy that allowed states to make their own decisions on cannabis without interference from the federal government.

Kristin Schrader, 51, a Democrat from Superior Township in Washtenaw County, said she voted to legalize marijuana because she doesn't want people leaving MI to get it. Sales there, estimated to start in 2020, could grow to as much as US$1.7b in the coming years, according to the trade publication Marijuana Business Daily. Each legalized growing, manufacturing, selling and consuming marijuana and marijuana products for medicinal use. Proposition 2 was passed with 53 percent of the vote. More than 60% of Florida voters voted in favor of a measure to restore voting rights to more than a million felons who have completed their sentences, reports CNN.

So even though Utah voted yeson Proposition 2 - which would have allowed medical marijuana patients to cultivate cannabis plants, allowed for more dispensaries, and included a more expansive list qualifying conditions for a prescription - the compromise pushed by the Church of the Latter Day Saints cuts back on all of it.

Just yesterday, Senator Olga Sanchez, Mexican President-elect Andrew Manual Lopez Obrador's choice for interior minister, announced plans to submit a recreational marijuana bill to Congress.
