Marijuana Legalized in Michigan, Other States Next?

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

Marijuana legalization on the ballot in four states

North Dakota voters are also deciding whether to legalize recreational marijuana on Tuesday.

Cannabis stocks, already bolstered by wins in the midterm elections, got an added boost when anti-pot Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced his resignation Wednesday afternoon.

Permit retail sales of marijuana and edibles subject to a 10% tax, dedicated to implementation costs, clinical trials, schools, roads, and municipalities where marijuana businesses are located. The ballot measure comes ten years after MI voters approved the use of medical marijuana. MI will also levy a tax on the sale of recreation cannabis.

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.

Jury selection begins in USA trial of Mexican drug lord 'El Chapo'
He has been in solitary confinement in a high-security NY prison since Mexico extradited him to the United States in January 2017. Guzman managed to escape from prison in Mexico twice before being extradited to the United States on January 19, 2017.

Approval of Proposal 1 comes ten years after MI voters approved medical marijuana.

Utah voters also approved medical marijuana - in a way. At that point, using and possessing marijuana will be legal, but, like MA, it could take a couple years to establish a system for retail businesses. They clearly were not ready to take the next step, although two-fifths of them said yes to a sweeping ballot initiative that aimed to legalize all peaceful marijuana-related activities (except for sales to minors) and create a system of automatic expungement for people convicted of such offenses. The former group now includes MI, the first state in the Midwest to allow recreational use, and the latter group now includes Missouri and Utah. If more than one measure passes, the proposal with the largest affirmative vote will become law. Support for medical marijuana is considerably higher: A Quinnipiac University poll conducted last April put it at 93 percent.

"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. When Gallop began polling Americans about the marijuana legalization in 1969, just 12 percent of respondents supported the issue.

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

Beto O'Rourke vs. Ted Cruz
The problem for O'Rourke was that he was running in Texas, a state that hasn't sent a Democrat to the U.S. The best moment of all arguably comes near the end with a final exchange between Cruz and Triumph.

North Dakotans passed an initiative allowing the use of medical marijuana in 2016 but the state has been slow to approve dispensaries.

Measures legalizing recreational marijuana are being considered during the midterm elections by voters in MI and North Dakota, potentially adding either to the list of nine states with similar laws now in place.

It's unclear if marijuana bills could get through the Republican-held Senate.

Obama zings hecklers at a campaign rally for Florida Democrats
That protester and two others were escorted from the venue. " Andrew Gillum is not equipped to be your governor". That +6 Democratic lean would be an incredible outlier among midterm elections in the past 40 years .
