If you’re a kind and rational American, we’re guessing that every day since November 8th has been pretty rough for you, to say the least. But, alas, while much of the country remains divided between conservative and liberal, Republican and Democrat, red state and blue state, there might be one common desire amidst all of our differences—and that’s the legalization of marijuana.

A liberal state like California passing legislation to permit recreational weed is no big surprise, but what may surprise you is that some conservative states also passed similar laws that cut restrictions on marijuana last November. For example, while Florida helped elect Trump into the White House, voters were responsible enough to allow patients with debilitating diseases to get access to pot for their treatment (even if their legislative force’s is bungling the creation of MMJ regulations.)

MERRY JANE News breaks down the red states that went green in 2016, and why this may be the best sign yet that federal marijuana legalization could be around the corner. Forget red states and blue states: it's time for all of us to unite and go red, white, and green.
