Michigan will Vote for Recreational Cannabis in November

The State Board of Canvassers in Michigan, the government body in the state that oversees its elections, has decided to include a recreational cannabis vote in the states November 2018 election.

Over 365,000 registered voters signed the petition in favor of the legalization of cannabis. If passed, adults the age of 21 and older would be able to carry up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis and the state would also collect a 10% tax on all marijuana sales.

Government officials are estimating that taxes from a legal industry could total $100 million a year. Michigan would become the 11th state in the U.S. to legalize adult use of the plant.

Though republican lawmakers in the state oppose the path to legalization, an advocacy group called the Coalition to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol believes that it is about time that the state considered marijuana legalization for adults because the generated tax dollars can help fix the states infrastructure and public education.
