Three states vote to legalize marijuana in midterm election

By  | 

(CNN) - Impactful congressional and gubernatorial races weren't the only items on the midterm ballots.

Several states were added to the growing list of legal places to smoke marijuana.

Michigan voters approved a measure permitting people over age 21 to smoke pot recreationally. It also changes current related violations from crimes to civil infractions.

Missouri had three marijuana measures on the ballot. Amendment two passed. That allows doctors to prescribe medical cannabis to patients.

Utah voters also gave the nod to medical marijuana.
