Still, not all states were ready to follow Canada's lead: North Dakota's ballot measure to decriminalize marijuana failed. The official vote total is 2,285,364 in favor of legalizing recreational marijuana in MI. Legalization won in MI by almost 12 points, while the medical marijuana measures won by 14 points in Oklahoma, by more than six points in Utah, and by 31 points in Missouri. By her calculation, after factoring in MI, the total addressable market for adult, medical, and illicit use of marijuana will be $24.5 billion by 2030.
In Missouri, there were three measures related to the legalization of medical marijuana.
MI now joins nine other states that have legalized marijuana for all uses: Washington, Colorado, California, Oregon, Alaska, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada and Vermont. The proposal also legalized commercial sales of marijuana through state-licensed retailers subject to a 10 percent tax.
In Missouri, a state constitutional amendment that would legalize the use of medical cannabis was leading 61 percent to 38 percent in early returns, according to the secretary of state's office. The majority voted in favor of legalization either medicinal or adult-use of marijuana, which signals state officials that they should proceed with the necessary reforms.
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. The former group now includes MI, the first state in the Midwest to allow recreational use, and the latter group now includes Missouri and Utah.

MI became the first Midwestern state to legalize recreational marijuana, and the 10th state overall to do so, with both CNN and NBC reporting that the state had passed Proposal 1.
A similar measure was defeated in North Dakota, meaning there are now 10 states that allow recreational use of pot. The measure would have legalized recreational cannabis for those 21 and over.
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. As there's no list specifying qualifying illnesses or disorders, doctors will be allowed to recommend medical cannabis to patients as they see fit.
