Michigan voters approved a measure to fully legalize marijuana on Election Day Nov. 6, 2018, making it the first state in the Midwest to allow retail cannabis sales for adults 21 and older.
As of 2:30 p.m. Central time Nov. 7, 2018, the Michigan Secretary of State’s unofficial tally from 82 of 83 counties has Proposal 1 leading with nearly 55 percent approval.
“This is yet another historic election for the movement to end marijuana prohibition,” Marijuana Policy Project executive director Steve Hawkins said in a statement to Marijuana Moment. “Voters have once again sent a message loud and clear that it is time to legalize and regulate marijuana. The victory in Michigan highlights just how widespread support is for marijuana policy reform.”
Under the new law, adults will be allowed to possess, buy and consume marijuana, and each individual can cultivate up to 12 plants for personal use. Adults may possess up to 10 ounces of cannabis at their residence.
