MI voters to decide on recreational marijuana, anti-gerrymandering, voting options

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

Three U.S. states are on track to loosen laws governing the use of recreational and medicinal marijuana as the world's largest economy continues to increasingly liberalize cannabis usage.

Recreational marijuana advocates were lighting up and passing joints in Detroit after a ballot proposal passed to legalize pot. And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12.

Recreational marijuana is now legal in some form in Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Washington, D.C. Additionally, 30 states offer some form of medical cannabis.

The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol says public consumption and driving under the influence are not legalized, and no commercial sales will happen until businesses are licensed and approved.

Before Tuesday's vote, 22 American states had adopted comprehensive medical marijuana programs. Any amount greater than 2.5 ounces must be stored under lock and key.

Proposal 1 establishes a legal framework for licensing and regulating marijuana businesses in MI including cultivators and dispensaries.

It also changes the current related violations from crimes to civil infractions. The initiative requires all marijuana and marijuana products to be tested for safety and includes strict tracking requirements to ensure that marijuana is not diverted into the unregulated market.

So each city can decide whether or not to allow the sale of recreational marijuana within its borders. Following in Colorado's footsteps, the proposal will allow adults 21 and over to purchase and possess weed, and will tax cannabis products. Scott Greenlee is the president of Healthy and Productive Michigan. The state will have strong regulations in place to ensure businesses are not marketing to children.

JZSToday North Dakota voters, who two years ago approved medical marijuana by a 28-point margin, declined to take the additional step of allowing recreational use.

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