The law is set to take effect on December 6.

DETROIT (AP) — Michigan clears a threshold this week as the first state in the Midwest to allow marijuana for more than just medical purposes.

In the Nov. 6 election, voters by a wide margin endorsed recreational use by adults who are at least 21. The move comes 10 years after voters approved marijuana to alleviate the effects of certain illnesses. Many supporters believe that decadelong experience, as well as similar legalization efforts in other states, led to victory at the ballot box.
===========================================
At least this will give all those soon-to-be-unemployed GM auto workers something to do with all their free time.

Illinois is stupid, they have been financially strapped for a while, people flooding out of the state, legalizing pot would have brought jobs, much needed tax revenue, and people back to the state. But such cowards to not upset the dumb, ignorant rednecks in this state

Eau Claire WI just lowered the fine for possession of under an OZ (I believe) to one dollar.

Complete legalization is only a heartbeat away.

The question is will all the felonies racked up over the decades of prohibition be expunged???
