Let's get high: MI just voted to legalize recreational marijuana

Source New Cannabis Ventures

Medical marijuana has been legal in MI since 2008, when 63 percent of voters approved it. MI joins nine states in legalizing recreational use: Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington.

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.

The state will also be able to issue licenses for dispensaries and other marijuana-related businesses, with taxes on the businesses projected to bring in $112 million to $275 million a year, according to estimates collected by The Detroit Free Press.

The third proposal approved by MI voters will add a few voting options, like voting by absentee ballot without giving a reason and using the straight-party option.

"Western and Northeastern states have led the way on legalizing marijuana, but the victory in MI powerfully demonstrates the national reach of this movement", Maria McFarland Sánchez-Moreno, executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, said in a press release.

Scientists have also been unable to concretely identify it as a comet because it lacks a tail or "coma" around it. Scientists first called the object an asteroid, then later deemed it a mildly active comet .

Proposals legalizing marijuana for medicinal purposes are pending in Missouri and Utah, meanwhile, where their passage would increase the number of states that permit medical cannabis from 31.

It will also be legal to give someone else 2.5 ounces of marijuana. Residents of Missouri will decide between three competing measures to legalize medicinal pot. On Tuesday night, just one passed. The industry would be subject to a 10 percent tax, as well as a sales tax. That revenue will be used for health care services for veterans. The initiative allows for the possession of up to 2.5 ounces, or up to 10 ounces at a private residence, for those 21 and older.

Create a state licensing system for marijuana businesses and allow municipalities to ban or restrict them.

However, access to legal medical marijuana was likely in the state, regardless if the measure passed. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) has called for a special session of the Utah Legislature in an effort to pass the compromise bill.
