These are the next 4 states to legalize marijuana

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

The official vote total is 2,285,364 in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana in MI.

With Michigan voting to legalize adult use, neighbors like OH and IL could soon follow suit to help build a market in that region, according to Ken Shea, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.

In Missouri, there were three measures related to the legalization of medical marijuana.

In that election, 63 percent of MI voters approved medical marijuana, making it the 13th state to legalize medical cannabis. The industry would be subject to a 10 percent tax, as well as a sales tax.

The measure, which was endorsed by a national organization of black-owned businesses and a group of retired MI law enforcement officers, will create a state licensing system for marijuana businesses and allow cities and townships to restrict them.

Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is widely expected to run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, introduced a bipartisan bill in August that would amend the Controlled Substances Act to allow cannabis companies in states where marijuana is legal to open accounts at federally regulated financial institutions and remain exempt from federal persecution.

Like Omar, she blazed a trail through MI politics, becoming the first Muslim woman to serve in the MI state legislature in 2008. Tlaib's win comes after the 2016 election of Trump spurred a record number of women to put their names on the ballot.

Ryan, who was speaking from an unidentified polling site, suggested the machines were also jamming because of the two-page ballot. That decision usually rests with local election officials who go over the provisional ballots after the election, the group says.

Healthy and Productive Michigan said in a statement Tuesday night that "our side lost" the measure that if approved will make the state the first in the Midwest to legalize its sale and use.

A similar measure was defeated in North Dakota, meaning there are now 10 states - including Colorado, which was the first - that allow recreational use of 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. The measure would have legalized recreational cannabis for those 21 and over.

In midterm elections that saw Democrats gain control of the House and reaffirmed Republican control of the Senate, more states also voted to legalize marijuana.

Nationwide, 66 percent of Americans now support the legalization of marijuana according to a recent poll from Gallup. Both states passed amendments that legalize marijuana for people with qualifying illnesses, bringing the total count in the United States to 30 states. He says it will ultimately be up to them, but he's hoping to get most to opt out. More than 60% of Florida voters voted in favor of a measure to restore voting rights to more than a million felons who have completed their sentences, reports CNN.

Amendment 2 follows the footsteps of previous state medical legalization.
