Missouri had three marijuana measures on the ballot.
One example of a possible timeline for MI comes from Colorado: Voters approved recreational marijuana in November 2012, but it didn't officially become legal to sell until 2014.
Utah's governor said he would call lawmakers into a special session after the midterm election to pass the deal into law, even if Tuesday's initiative failed. Missouri became the 31st state to approve the medical use of marijuana.
The cash crop is expected to bring in enormous revenue for MI with marijuana and edibles subjected to a 10 per cent tax in addition to the state's regular six per cent sales tax.
MI voters approved a law that legalized the possession, use, and cultivation of marijuana products by those who are at least 21 years of age.
MI voters were asked to give their opinion on Proposal 1, which would fully legalize marijuana in the state.More news: Mac Miller Cause of Death Revealed: Accidental Overdose of Fentanyl, Cocaine & Alcohol
According to preliminary results, more than 54% of voters in MI said yes to the initiative that imposes a 10-ounce limit for MI residents, creates a state licensing system, will allow for retail sales subject to a 10% tax and changes several current weed-related violations to civil infractions. 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 new law will instate a system to license and regulate medical marijuana businesses and will exempt marijuana from local and state sales taxes.
Adding two more states with medicinal marijuana would mean nearly 70 per cent of Americans could have access to the drug for that goal.
Kristin Schrader, 51, a Democrat from Superior Township in Washtenaw County, said she voted to legalize marijuana because she doesn't want people leaving MI to get it.
Proposition No. 2 in Utah passed with about 53 percent of voters for the measure and about 47 percent against it. Each legalized growing, manufacturing, selling and consuming marijuana and marijuana products for medicinal use. Amendment 2 passed, which allowed doctors to prescribe medical cannabis to patients.
Just yesterday, Senator Olga Sanchez, Mexican President-elect Andrew Manual Lopez Obrador's choice for interior minister, announced plans to submit a recreational marijuana bill to Congress.
