Why Marijuana Was A Big Winner From 2018 Midterms (CGC)(CRON)(TLRY)(APHA)

And research from Washington State University found that police in Washington and Colorado are solving crimes faster than their peers in states without marijuana legalization. In the 2018 midterm elections, four states voted on various stages of legalization, whether medical or recreational.

MI voters approved a measure permitting people over 21 years old to smoke pot.

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

MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont.

Permit retail sales of marijuana and edibles subject to a 10% tax, dedicated to implementation costs, clinical trials, schools, roads, and municipalities where marijuana businesses are located.

On the MI side of the border, recreational cannabis will not be legal until ten days after election results are official.

This year, Klum's costume paid homage to princess turned ogre, Fiona, from the beloved 2001 animated classic, Shrek . Every year, we sing the praises of each costume and convince ourselves it's the best one yet.

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. 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.

"Michigan will be the first state in the Midwest to end marijuana prohibition and replace it with a system in which marijuana is regulated for adult use", Marijuana Policy Project deputy director Matthew Schweich, who directed the legalization campaign, said in a statement. So far Vermont is the only state that has legalized recreational use (but not commercial production and distribution) by that route.

Nationwide, 66 percent of Americans now support the legalization of marijuana according to a recent poll from Gallup. As there's no list specifying qualifying illnesses or disorders, doctors will be allowed to recommend medical cannabis to patients as they see fit.

Both Missouri and Utah were won handily by President Donald Trump in the 2016 general election, but Cowen analyst Vivien Azer says that support for marijuana is becoming more bipartisan. Amendment 2 passed by a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent.

Just yesterday, Senator Olga Sanchez, Mexican President-elect Andrew Manual Lopez Obrador's choice for interior minister, announced plans to submit a recreational marijuana bill to Congress.

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