That desire became official last night (or at least was solidly projected) when voters okayed the legalization questions on the two states’ respective ballots. According to Marijuana Moment, just shy of two-thirds of voters — about 65.5 per cent — voted “yes” in Maryland, while Missouri was a bit more of a squeaker, with approximately 53.3 per cent of voters doing so.
