Michigan Says Yes, ND Says No to Recreational Pot

Midterms and marijuana: These 4 states will vote on legal pot Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

Utah voters also chose to legalize medical use of marijuana for people with qualifying illnesses, with about 56 per cent in favour and almost half of the state's polls reporting.

North Dakota's Measure 3, which would have made it legal for anyone over the age of 21 to use the drug, was losing by a margin of 60 percent to 40 percent with 357 out of 424 precincts reporting, according to the secretary of state's website. In the 2018 midterm elections, four states voted on various stages of legalization, whether medical or recreational.

In Michigan, voters will decide whether to approve - for adults aged 21 and older - recreational use and legalize the possession and sale of up to 2.5 ounces of pot.

Meanwhile, a similar measure in North Dakota is poised for defeat. We do know that the proposal's passing doesn't mean you can walk outside and buy weed at this very moment.

For instance, Colorado voters approved recreational marijuana in November of 2012, but the amendment to change the law didn't go into effect until December 2012.

Matthew Abel, an attorney with the Cannabis Counsel in Detroit, says there is still work to be done on marijuana laws in the state. Canada last month became the first industrialized country to legalize recreational cannabis.

In Utah and Missouri, voters on Tuesday decided that patients should have access to medical marijuana.

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. "With such overwhelming public support for marijuana legalization, even including majorities of Republicans and older Americans, there's only so long that the federal government can continue to hold out".
