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

North Dakota voters have rejected a ballot measure that would have legalized recreational marijuana.

He said if the referendum passes, 'we know some of our citizens are going to go over to MI to partake.' And those who return either under the influence or in possession of pot may learn the hard way that it remains illegal in IN and OH, which overwhelmingly rejected a 2015 legalization measure. Medical marijuana is legal in 31 states, as well as the nation's capital.

Washington state's initiative 940 would change the legal standard for use of deadly force in officer-involved shootings.

'We'll enforce our laws as written.

According to the polls MI seems likely to legalize marijuana, with recent Gallup and the Pew Research Center polls showing it had the support of more than 60 percent of respondents.

15 percent to municipalities that allow marijuana businesses. Supporters argued that legalizing pot would free up law enforcement to tackle more serious crimes.

Neither side had a major funding edge in the days before the election. Here's a rundown of what the measures say and where the polling on them now stands. Supporters say it will raise roughly $130 million in additional tax revenue each year that will go toward road repairs, schools and local governments. They also say its 16 percent tax rate is too low.

To learn more about the proposal and the effects of legalizing marijuana, read Mark Peterson's in-depth report. It places no limits on possession, and legalizes the sale and commercialization of the drug without setting up a regulatory structure to govern those sales.

Utah voters will weigh in on medical marijuana, but the eventual result is essentially a foregone conclusion.

It has been a big year for marijuana policy in North America.

Campaigners rally for the approval of medicinal marijuana in Utah. In October, supporters and opponents of the medical marijuana measure struck a compromise: The governor would convene a special session of the legislature immediately after the election to craft a more limited medical marijuana bill, regardless of the ballot item's outcome.

Smoking weed will remain illegal but the sick will be able to eat marijuana-infused foods and use vape pens. Some were initiated by citizens, others by lawmakers.

In Missouri, voters will be asked to chose between three separate proposals legalizing medical marijuana to varying degrees.

Polling on the issue has been scant, but a survey in August showed that voters supported, in general terms, an amendment to the state constitution that would legalize medical marijuana.
