The state will collect a 10 percent excise tax on marijuana sales, with revenue split between education, infrastructure, and municipalities that have approved marijuana businesses.

MI voters have approved the legalization of recreational marijuana. Before Tuesday's vote 20 of the 50 states allow it for medical use. North Carolina and Arkansas voted to join 17 other states in requiring voters to show photo ID.

Voters in Missouri and Utah both approved ballot measures to allow the sale of medical marijuana, meaning cannabis for medicinal purposes is now available to half of the country.

North Dakota's Measure 3, which would have made it legal for anyone over the age of 21 to use the drug, was losing by a margin of 60 percent to 40 percent with 357 out of 424 precincts reporting, according to the secretary of state's website. The proposal also creates an additional license for marijuana "microbusinesses" for grows of up to 150 plants, and individuals can grow up to 12 marijuana plants per household.

Amendment 2 follows the footsteps of previous state medical legalization. Missouri also voted to legalize medical marijuana Tuesday. The latter is the only state that does not authorize marijuana stores.

Recreational marijuana is now legal in some form in Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Washington, D.C. Additionally, 30 states offer some form of medical cannabis.

The Coalition to Regulate Marijuana like Alcohol says public consumption and driving under the influence are not legalized, and no commercial sales will happen until businesses are licensed and approved.
