These 9 States Will Vote on Legalizing Recreational and Medical Marijuana

9 States Will Vote on Legalizing Recreational and Medical Marijuana measures on the ballot this November, and chances are good that many will pass – giving pot advocates high hopes that the federal government will eventually lift its nationwide ban.

in five states – Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada – voters will decide on legalizing the recreational use of marijuana. In four other states – Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota – voters will weigh in on medical marijuana, which is already legal in nearly half the country.

As election Day approaches, polls and research shows rising support for marijuana legalization: 57% of US adults say marijuana should be made legal, compared to just 32% a decade ago. Supporters say the shift in attitude is in part thanks to successes in Colorado and Washington, the first states where voters approved recreational marijuana in 2014.
