Recreational marijuana isn't legal yet

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

Marijuana is illegal under federal law, though the Obama administration advised prosecutors against pursuing related cases in states that have passed legislation permitting the plant for medical or recreational purposes.

US efforts to legalize recreational marijuana use saw mixed results on Tuesday, as voters in MI approved a measure legalizing the drug while North Dakotans looked set to block it.

MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont. Businesses will be issued licenses and cannabis will be subjected to a 10 percent excise tax in addition to a 6 percent state sales tax.

North Dakota approved a measure to redefine who is a qualified elector to say "only a citizen".

Including Michigan, 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana.

MI voters legalized recreational marijuana use for residents over the age of 21 with retail sales of the product subject to a 10 percent tax.

Marijuana legalization, non-partisan redistricting and expanded voting access were all given the green light by voters across the state and locally in Tuesday's General Election. But the passage in MI gives it a foothold in Middle America and could cause tension with neighboring in and OH, which overwhelmingly rejected a 2015 legalization measure.

Approval of Proposal 1 comes ten years after MI voters approved medical marijuana. Amendment 3 would allow doctors to prescribe weed, but would impose a 15-percent tax and ban home cultivation; and Proposition 3 would tax marijuana at 2 percent and set a list of qualifying conditions. Medical marijuana is legal in 31 states, as well as the nation's capital.

The support for the proposal was overwhelming with many people interested in the new measure for its economic benefits.

"Momentum is gaining for change in Congress to allow states to determine their own marijuana policies", Morgan Fox, media relations director at the National Cannabis Industry Association, told Wired.

Proposition No. 2 in Utah passed with about 53 percent of voters for the measure and about 47 percent against it.

In Ohio, five cities voted to decriminalize marijuana.
