Michigan, Missouri, Utah voters opt to loosen marijuana laws

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

MI voters have passed an initiative to legalize marijuana. New York may be the next state to approve medicinal or recreational marijuana usage, with New York State health officials reporting that "the positive effects of regulating an adult marijuana market in NYS outweigh the potential negative impacts".

Tuesday's 2018 midterm elections was a big success for cannabis advocates. The industry would be subject to a 10 percent tax, as well as a sales tax.

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. But the Michigan Legislature still has to write laws that will govern the state's licensing system for marijuana businesses, and then the businesses will have to get proper licensing.

While Michigan is the tenth state to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, passing such a proposal would have been unthinkable half a century ago.

In the 2013 semifinals, he bounced back from a set down to beat the Swiss, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. And what more can I ask for? "And I saw that my level is there".

Medical marijuana has been legal in MI since voters approved its use in a 2008 ballot initiative.

MI voters were asked to give their opinion on Proposal 1, which would fully legalize marijuana in the state.

"It's going to take about a year before we have commercial implementation of this system", said Hank.

Adding two more states with medicinal marijuana would mean nearly 70 per cent of Americans could have access to the drug for that objective.

Messi had trained the same day, along with other players not involved in Saturday's 3-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano. He has travelled with the squad to Milan without the all-clear from the club's medical team.

In Utah, the ballots included Proposition 2, the Medical Marijuana Initiative. Those 21 and over will now be allowed to grow up to 12 plants each at their residence, and possess up to 10 ounces of cannabis.

Nationwide, 66 percent of Americans now support the legalization of marijuana according to a recent poll from Gallup. Amendment 3 would allow doctors to prescribe weed, but would impose a 15-percent tax and ban home cultivation; and Proposition 3 would tax marijuana at 2 percent and set a list of qualifying conditions. With 79 per cent of polls reporting, almost 61 per cent voters in the state voted against the legalization of recreational marijuana use for those 21 and older.

It's unclear if marijuana bills could get through the Republican-held Senate.

The support for the proposal was overwhelming with many people interested in the new measure for its economic benefits.
