MI voters legalize recreational marijuana use

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

North Dakotans decisively rejected a proposal to make marijuana legal for recreational purposes.

In Florida, 63 percent voted to pass a measure that restores voting rights to 1.5 million former convicts.

Matthew Abel, an attorney with the Cannabis Counsel in Detroit, says there is still work to be done on marijuana laws in the state.

Measures legalizing recreational marijuana are being considered during the midterm elections by voters in MI and North Dakota, potentially adding either to the list of nine states with similar laws now in place. MI is now the 10th state to legalize marijuana for adults 21 and older.

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. Missouri also voted to legalize medical marijuana Tuesday. Possession of marijuana by minors would be treated the same as possession of alcohol. And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12.

Free Cameroon's Kidnapped School Children
Around a fifth of Cameroon's 22m people are English-speaking - a minority whose presence dates back to the colonial period. The government and English-speaking separatists have accused each other of orchestrating the kidnapping.

Proposal 1 establishes a legal framework for licensing and regulating marijuana businesses in MI including cultivators and dispensaries. Violations of the law would result in civil infractions or criminal charges, depending on the severity of the offense.

Proposal 1 allows cities and towns to regulate, ban, or limit the number of marijuana businesses in the community. Its proposal also levies a 10 percent sales tax on pot sales.

MI residents over 21 years old will soon be able to buy, possess, use, and grow marijuana.

Under Proposal 1, Michigan's state government will create regulations on: labeling and packaging of marijuana and marijuana products; and the advertising and marketing of marijuana, marijuana products, and marijuana businesses.
