MI residents vote to legalize recreational marijuana

MI residents vote to legalize recreational marijuana”

MI voters on Tuesday made their state the first in the Midwest to legalize recreational marijuana, passing a ballot measure that will allow people 21 or older to buy and use the drug and putting conservative neighboring states on notice.

MI became the first Midwestern state to legalize recreational marijuana, and the 10th state overall to do so, with both CNN and NBC reporting that the state had passed Proposal 1.

A recreational marijuana measure in North Dakota, Measure 3, would also legalize possession and sale of the plant, albeit without implementing a state-wide system to tax and regulate purchases.

In Utah and Missouri, voters approved changes to the ledger, paving the way for marijuana use for medical purposes in each state.

Ron Galaviz said before Election Day that if the measure passed, he and his colleagues envisioned "dedicated patrols" to spot drivers coming from MI who might be high or have pot on them.

Utah voters also approved medical marijuana - in a way. Proposition 2 was passed with 53 percent of the vote.

Many opposed to the measure argued that the proposal was too unstructured as it would have allowed for people to grow and possess as much cannabis as they want. Both states passed amendments that legalize marijuana for people with qualifying illnesses, bringing the total count in the United States to 30 states.

Because voters chose not to add any restrictions, the state law will remain as it now stands, allowing the city to have up to eight retail marijuana stores. The latter is the only state that does not authorize marijuana stores.

Opponents, including many law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, chambers of commerce and religious groups, said legalizing marijuana would lead to increased use by children, drug abuse and auto crashes. The most straightforward approach I've seen is the Respect State Marijuana Laws Act, a one-sentence bill sponsored by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) that makes the federal marijuana ban inapplicable to anyone acting in compliance with state law. 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.

And in one of the sweeter outcomes of the Democrats' retaking of the House, one of the biggest obstacles to marijuana reform in Congress, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), lost to Democrat Colin Allred, a supporter of marijuana reform. Chairman of the House Rules Committee since 2013, Sessions had blocked the advance of over 36 marijuana-related federal amendments alone.
