Michigan Proposals 2 and 3 have passed

Midterms and marijuana: These 4 states will vote on legal pot Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

MI just joined nine other states, the District of Columbia, and Canada in legalizing recreational marijuana. Its proposal also levies a 10 percent sales tax on pot sales.

The measure passed by a 56-44 percent margin. In the 2018 midterm elections, four states voted on various stages of legalization, whether medical or recreational. Residents would be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants at their home without a license or purchase pot from a licensed business.

In Missouri, voters will be asked to chose between three separate proposals legalizing medical marijuana to varying degrees.

A ballot measure in North Dakota would make it legal for residents 21 or older to grow, possess and use marijuana in whatever quantity they want. 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.

For instance, Colorado voters approved recreational marijuana in November of 2012, but the amendment to change the law didn't go into effect until December 2012. Missouri became the 31st state to approve the medical use of marijuana.

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. Amendment 2 passed, which allowed doctors to prescribe medical cannabis to patients. "With such overwhelming public support for marijuana legalization, even including majorities of Republicans and older Americans, there's only so long that the federal government can continue to hold out". 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.
