Michigan Proposals 2 and 3 have passed

Midterms and marijuana: These 4 states will vote on legal pot

Three U.S. states are on track to loosen laws governing the use of recreational and medicinal marijuana as the world's largest economy continues to increasingly liberalize cannabis usage.

If Measure 3 passed, it would have fallen on the state legislature to pull together a regulatory structure.

Measure 3 would have gone further than any initiative enacted so far by removing marijuana from the state's list of prohibited substances and thereby legalizing "any nonviolent marijuana activity, except for the sale of marijuana to a person under the age of 21".

State laws allowing recreational use of marijuana have spread across the United States since Colorado voters approved one in 2012. Possession of marijuana by minors would be treated the same as possession of alcohol.

Utah's medical legalization effort is a bit complicated: Despite what Utah voters decided on Proposition 2, the governor will still call for a special legislative session to craft an alternative, more limited bill.

She said: "It's such a waste of all the cultures and all the music to only listen to one kind of music". In 2013, Apa Khabar became the first hip-hop song to win Best Song at Anugerah Juara Lagu .

Residents can also grow up to 12 plants for personal use. Any amount greater than 2.5 ounces must be stored under lock and key. It also changes current related violations from crimes to civil infractions.

Proposal 1 allows cities and towns to regulate, ban, or limit the number of marijuana businesses in the community. The industry would be subject to a 10 percent tax, as well as a sales tax.

Supporters of Proposal 1 say it will align with the state's new regulatory system for medical marijuana businesses and raise roughly $130 million in additional tax revenue each year that can go toward road repairs, schools and local governments.

Canada, Michigan's neighbor to the north, legalized marijuana sales for adults in mid-October, which added pressured for Michigan to pass recreational use, too.
