Michigan Proposal 1: Passed- In Favor 56.8%, Opposed 43.2%
Adults 21 and older are legally allowed to purchase, possess and use cannabis including edibles. This permits up to 12 plants for personal consumption in home grows. Anything over 2.5 ounces must be kept in a locked container. A 10% tax on the retail sale of cannabis and edibles is also instituted under this proposal. The tax revenue generated will be allocated to the districts that have cannabis businesses, and the money is to be spent on clinical trials, schools, roads, and municipalities. Several current violations were changed from crimes to civil infractions.

This would have removed cannabis and THC derivatives from the list of schedule I controlled substances. It also would have eliminated prosecution for any non-violent cannabis-related activity for residents over 21. Lastly, this measure would have created an appeals process for an individual to expunge a criminal record and would have established no limit on the home plant count of recreational home grows.
