What's next for recreational marijuana in MI?

While branded Ontario Cannabis Stores have yet to materialize - they are expected in 2019 - Ontario residents looking to purchase government-sanctioned marijuana have done so online, a process complicated by Ontario Post strikes and sky-high demand. The official vote total is 2,285,364 in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana in MI.

MI voters have passed an initiative to legalize marijuana.

Proposal 1 allows adults aged 21 and older to possess up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana.

"Thanks to the unflagging efforts of patients and advocates, Missourians who could benefit from medical marijuana will soon be able to use it without fear of being treated like criminals", said Matthew Sweich, deputy director of the Marijuana Policy Project.

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.

Nevada voted to exempt feminine hygiene products from state and local sales taxes.

The measure, which was endorsed by a national organization of black-owned businesses and a group of retired MI law enforcement officers, will create a state licensing system for marijuana businesses and allow cities and townships to restrict them.

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

Weed stocks were gaining ground early Wednesday after MI became the 10th USA state to legalize marijuana for recreational use. The proposal also creates an additional license for marijuana "microbusinesses" for grows of up to 150 plants, and individuals can grow up to 12 marijuana plants per household.

MI has become the 10th state to legalize recreational marijuana.

Utah voters also gave the nod to medical marijuana. The measure would have legalized recreational cannabis for those 21 and over.

Nationwide, 66 percent of Americans now support the legalization of marijuana according to a recent poll from Gallup. The constitutional amendment will allow patients with cancer, HIV, epilepsy and other conditions access to the drug.

Florida voters approved a ballot measure that will restore voting rights to 1.5 million ex-felons when they complete their sentences.

Amendment 2 was passed with a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent.

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

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.
