Michigan Becomes First State in Midwest to Legalize Marijuana, As Missouri and Utah Approve Medical Marijuana and Florida Restores Felony Voting Rights | Drug Policy Alliance

This Election Day showed the burgeoning political clout of the drug policy reform movement, with the results expected to accelerate efforts to legalize marijuana and to end the broader war on drugs in states across the U.S., at the federal level, and internationally.   Michigan voters approved Proposal 1, a ballot initiative to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana for adults 21 and over, making it the 10th U.S. state to legalize marijuana – and the first in the Midwest. Missouri and Utah also became the 32nd and 33rd states to approve medical marijuana.
