This November voters in the state of Michigan will be able to decide whether or not they think the state should legalize the use of recreational marijuana.
The Republican-controlled Legislature did not approve a citizen-initiated measure before a 40-day deadline passed Tuesday. Not getting the approval means that the ballot initiative will get a public vote in November.
If the ballot measure is successful and Michigan voters decide to legalize the drug recreationally, the state will become the 10th to do so. Adults aged 21 and older will be able to have up to 2.5 ounces of marijuana outside their home and grow up to 12 plants at home.
gMedical marijuana has been legal in the state for almost ten years.
