Governor Gary Herbert has said he would call a special legislative session to take up that proposed law later this month.

One example of a possible timeline for MI comes from Colorado: Voters approved recreational marijuana in November 2012, but it didn't officially become legal to sell until 2014.

MI became the first state to legalize recreational marijuana. And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12.

MI voters said "Yes" to Proposal 1, making the state the first in the Midwest to legalize recreational cannabis cultivation and use for those 21 years of age and older.

A similar measure was defeated in North Dakota, meaning there are now 10 states that allow recreational use of pot. It would, however, have legalized cannabis for residents 21-years-old and over, and expunged old convictions for cannabis possession.

He says they will now turn to helping communities opt out of having to allow retail pot businesses. It also changes current related violations from crimes to civil infractions.

A ballot measure in North Dakota would make it legal for residents 21 or older to grow, possess and use marijuana in whatever quantity they want.

Under Proposal 1, Michigan's state government will create regulations on: labeling and packaging of marijuana and marijuana products; and the advertising and marketing of marijuana, marijuana products, and marijuana businesses.

MI residents over 21 years old will soon be able to buy, possess, use, and grow marijuana.
