The 2018 midterm elections had four states vote on some level of marijuana legalisation. 

Of the states voting for recreational use, Michigan and North Dakota, Michigan voted for while North Dakota voted against. 

Voters in both Utah and Missouri who voted on medical cannabis voted for, even despite protests in Utah from there Mormon Church, which many of the states citizens are apart of. 

The results in Michigan made it the 10th US state to allow for recreational marijuana, while Utah and Missouri became the 32nd and 33rd states respectively to allow for medical use.
