3 States Legalize Marijuana For Recreational Or Medical Use

Three more states legalized marijuana for recreational or medical use on Tuesday. In both Utah and Missouri, voters legalized marijuana for medical purposes ― the 31st and 32nd states to approve medical cannabis. Under the measure, adults can be in possession of 2.5 ounces of marijuana, a provision similar to the state’s medical marijuana law that was approved in 2008. Amendment 2 legalized medical marijuana and imposes a 4 percent tax on all marijuana sales. In October, Utah medical marijuana advocates and state lawmakers agreed to a compromise bill that would legalize medical marijuana in the state but with some differences from the ballot initiative.
