Michigan, North Dakota weigh bringing legal marijuana to Midwest

DETROIT — Voters in Michigan and North Dakota will decide Tuesday whether to legalize recreational marijuana, which would make them the first states in the Midwest to do so and would put conservative neighboring states on notice.

More than half the states have legalized medical marijuana, and Utah and Missouri could join their ranks Tuesday.

The District of Columbia and nine states have legalized recreational pot for people age 21 or older. And Canada, which shares a border with Michigan and North Dakota, recently made it legal for adults to use the medication. But passage of the measures in either state, which both have Republican governors and Republican-controlled legislatures, would give it a foothold in Middle America and could cause tension along their state borders.
