Help Michigan become the tenth state to legalize cannabis for adult recreational use!
On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, Michigan will vote on legalizing the recreational use and possession of marijuana for persons 21 years of age or older and enacting a tax on marijuana sales. This voter approved ballot initiative was designed to allow adults aged 21 years or older to possess and use marijuana for recreational purposes. Individuals would also be permitted to grow up to 12 marijuana plants in their residences.

The Michigan Regulation and Taxation of Marihuana Act would tax marijuana sales with a 10 percent excise tax and a 6 percent sales tax. The revenue would go to public schools K-12 for education, infrastructure, and state and county communities that will allow marijuana businesses. A provision in the bill will allow state and county communities to decide whether to allow recreational use locally.
Legal recreational marijuana in the state is expected to become a $700 million industry annually. More than 63 percent of voters in Michigan legalized medical marijuana in 2008. Voters will decide the state's fate with recreational marijuana on November 6.
