Michigan residents have approved Proposal 1, legalizing Marijuana across the state; Proposal 2, a constitutional amendment that establishes a committee to carry out the congressional redistricting process; and Proposal 3, the “Promote the Vote” initiative.
Proposal 1 legalizes Marijuana across the state by allowing adults over 21 to possess 2.5 ounces of marijuana, securely store up to 10 ounces and grow up to 12 plants per household. Businesses will now be allowed to apply for licenses to grow and sell marijuana, with sales being subjected to a 10 percent additional tax on top of the 6 percent sales tax in Michigan. This is expected to generate between $100 million and $200 million annually. The proposal allows cities to prohibit businesses from selling marijuana within their limits and employers to fire employees for using marijuana on the job.
