South Dakota has a unique election coming up. Currently, MMJ and adult-use cannabis are outlawed in the state. On Nov. 3, SD will vote on whether to legalize recreational (adult-use) AND medical marijuana. No other state has had both on the ballot at the same time before.
Montana has some of the strictest recreational cannabis laws in the nation, and possession of one recreational joint can put you in jail for up to six months. However, the state voted to legalize medical cannabis in 2004. Montana will vote on recreational marijuana legalization during the November 2020 election. Montana residents will have the opportunity to vote on Initiative 190, which would legalize recreational marijuana for persons age 21 and older. In order for the legalization to be properly implemented, voters must also approve Constitutional Initiative 118, a separate ballot question that would allow the state to set an age requirement of 21 for legal cannabis use.
Adult-use and medical marijuana are currently illegal in Mississippi. But, Mississippi will vote on legalizing medical marijuana on November 3!
Arizona legalized medical marijuana in 2010. Recreational cannabis-use is still illegal, however. But the state will have adult-use legalization on the ballot on Nov. 3! If Proposition 207 passes, it will legalize the possession, use, cultivation, and sale of marijuana for persons over the age of 21.
New Jersey legalized mmj back in 2010. This Nov, NJ residents will have the opportunity to vote adult-use cannabis into law and reap the rewards of a full-fledged market!
