Michigan, Utah, Missouri Voters Approve Marijuana Measures

The only Nov. 6 statewide ballot measure to fail was North Dakota’s Measure 3 to legalize recreational use by adults.

Voters in three states passed marijuana ballot measures on Nov. 6, with only North Dakota's Measure 3 to legalize recreational use by adults falling short.

Michigan's Proposition 1 easily passed by a 56-44 majority. It will legalize recreational use of marijuana for adults 21 or older and will allow for flower, concentrates, or cannabis-infused edibles. It allows consumers to cultivate up to 12 plants for personal use and limits possession to 10 ounces of marijuana products stored in their home and to 2.5 ounces in public. Using it in public is prohibited under the measure.

North Dakota's Measure 3 would have removed hashish, marijuana, and tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) from its list of Schedule I substances, thus making recreational marijuana use legal for adults. The measure would not have limited the amount of marijuana a North Dakota adult could possess or how many cannabis plants could be cultivated at home. The Bismarck Tribune reported Nov. 7 that the measure failed -- with 369 of 424 precincts reporting, Measure 3 had only a 40.14 percentage of the votes in favor and 59.86 percent voting against it.

In Utah, voters passed Proposition 2, a ballot measure that will legalize medical marijuana, and Missouri voters approved Amendment 2, which legalizes medical marijuana and was one of three marijuana measures on that state's Nov. 6 ballot. Amendment 2 will impose a 4 percent sales tax, with the revenue to fund veterans' health care services and to cover state operating costs.
