Unless you have been living under a rock for the last five years, then you know that there are now 8 states that have legalized cannabis for adult use. Colorado and Washington State legalized cannabis in 2012, Oregon, Alaska (and Washington D.C.) legalized cannabis in 2014, and Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, and California legalized cannabis in 2016. All of those states (and D.C.) legalized cannabis via the citizen initiative process. Going into 2017 it seemed like at least one state would legalize cannabis via legislative action, and Vermont was very close to doing so until its Governor vetoed a legalization bill that was passed by Vermont’s Legislature. With 2017 coming to a close and 2018 right around the corner, many people are wondering which states will legalize cannabis in 2018. 2018 is a mid-term election year, and at least one state seems likely to see legalization on the ballot. Which States Will Legalize Marijuana In 2018?
