MI voters legalize recreational marijuana use

And it didn't officially become legal to sell it until 2014.

Voters in four states are casting ballots on measures to legalize marijuana Tuesday, further testing the Trump administration's stance on the subject following the federal government's reversal of Obama-era law enforcement policies.

Recreational marijuana advocates were lighting up and passing joints in Detroit after a ballot proposal passed to legalize pot. Residents would be allowed to grow up to 12 marijuana plants at their home without a license or purchase pot from a licensed business.

MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont. On a more municipal level, voters in various cities across OH weighed questions related to decriminalization and minimizing punishments so that possession is treated like a traffic ticket instead of a misdemeanor. It also became the first state in the midwest to legalize marijuana.

Impose a 10-ounce limit for marijuana kept at residences and require amounts over 2.5 ounces be secured in locked containers.

Retired police detective Howard (Cowboy) Wooldrige waits for results to come in for Proposal 18-1 during the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol public watch party in Lansing, Mich., on Tuesday.

Change several current violations from crimes to civil infractions.

So each city can decide whether or not to allow the sale of recreational marijuana within its borders.

Proposal 1 establishes a 10 percent tax on marijuana products in addition to Michigan's 6 percent sales tax.

Canada, Michigan's neighbor to the north, legalized marijuana sales for adults in mid-October, which added pressured for Michigan to pass recreational use, too.
