The States Where It's Legal To Smoke Marijuana

by Felix Richter,

-- this post authored by Niall McCarthy

As well as voting in the presidential election last month, some Americans also had their say on whether marijuana should be legalised across several US states.

California, Massachusetts, Maine, and Nevada all voted to legalise recreational marijuana. The vote doubled the number of states where lighting up is legal - legislation was already passed in Colorado, Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.

Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota all voted to legalise weed for medical use. Arizona was an exception, however, voting against decriminalising the green stuff for recreational purposes. California in particular is expected to have a massive market for recreational marijuana, larger than Colorado, Washington, Oregon and Alaska combined.

This chart shows laws on recreational and medical marijuana use in the US.
