As of late Tuesday night with 43 per cent of polls reporting, MI voters appeared to vote in favour of legalizing recreational cannabis for anyone 21 years old or older in the state, with about 57 per cent of voters approving the ballot measure while 42 per cent voted against it.

To learn more about the proposal and the effects of legalizing marijuana, read Mark Peterson's in-depth report.

"This is yet another historic election for the movement to end marijuana prohibition", said Steve Hawkins, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project, which played a leading role in organizing the MI initiative.

Voters in Utah and Missouri will consider whether to approve the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.

It will also be legal to give someone else 2.5 ounces of marijuana.

Allow individuals 21 and older to; purchase, possess and use marijuana and marijuana-infused edibles, and grow up to 12 marijuana plants for personal consumption. The initiative charges the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs with creating a licensing system for commercial production and distribution, subject to a 10 percent tax on retail sales. Residents of Missouri will decide between three competing measures to legalize medicinal pot. Municipalities can choose to ban or restrict marijuana businesses within their borders. In Utah, meanwhile, Gov. Gary Herbert said he would ask lawmakers to work on a bill legalizing medical marijuana if voters reject Proposition 2 at the polls Tuesday. The bill appears to have support from a number of key stakeholders in the state, from advocates, policymakers and the Mormon church.
