As the battle of red versus blue continues in a partisan political battle for reigns over Congress in November’s midterm elections, there’s also an ongoing battle for four states in the U.S. that are looking to go green.
On November 6th, 2018, voters in North Dakota, and Michigan will decide whether or not to legalize recreational cannabis for adult-use. Meanwhile, the legalization of medical marijuana is on the ballots in Utah and Missouri. According to Barron’s:
“If all four states vote for legalization, marijuana would be legal for recreational use in 11 states and the District of Columbia, and it would be legal for medical use in 33 states. That means a quarter of the U.S. population would live in a place where recreational weed is allowed, and two-thirds of Americans would live in a place where medical pot is allowed.”
In addition to the four states that are set to vote on marijuana legalization measures, six more states will be choosing gubernatorial candidates based on their stances on cannabis.
