The primary opposition group to Michigan's ballot initiative on whether to legalize recreational marijuana has conceded defeat. New York may be the next state to approve medicinal or recreational marijuana usage, with New York State health officials reporting that "the positive effects of regulating an adult marijuana market in NYS outweigh the potential negative impacts". The proposal also legalized commercial sales of marijuana through state-licensed retailers subject to a 10 percent tax.

Matthew Abel, an attorney with the Cannabis Counsel in Detroit, says there is still work to be done on marijuana laws in the state.

There are now 10 states, along with Washington, D.C., that have legalized recreational marijuana.

Utah's medical legalization effort is a bit complicated: Despite what Utah voters decided on Proposition 2, the governor will still call for a special legislative session to craft an alternative, more limited bill. Utah voters also were considering whether to allow medical marijuana and to join the 31 other states that have already done so. It may take another year for the state issues licenses for businesses to sell marijuana.

While there is still considerable room for liberalizing marijuana policy by initiative, the focus increasingly will shift to legislatures in states such as New Jersey, New Hampshire, and New Mexico. A Gallup poll found that 72 percent of Democrats and 51 percent of Republicans support legalization.

Proposition C would have altered state law to place a 2 percent tax on medical weed that would go to veteran services, drug treatment, early childhood education, and public safety in cities with dispensaries. As there's no list specifying qualifying illnesses or disorders, doctors will be allowed to recommend medical cannabis to patients as they see fit.

'Marijuana has now been legalized for adult use in one out of every five states and medical use in three out of every five, so it is safe to say federal law is in need of an update, ' Hawkins added. More than 60% of Florida voters voted in favor of a measure to restore voting rights to more than a million felons who have completed their sentences, reports CNN.
