Update, Monday Jan 22, 2018
Gov. Phill Scott officially signed marijuana legalization into effect today. Only 22 days into 2018. Any guesses on who’s next?
With all the drama that happened in 2017, you might not even have noticed that there wasn’t a lot happening in terms of new states legalizing cannabis.
Well, we aren’t exen 2 weeks into 2018, and it’s already shaping up to be a huge year for cannabis.
. Existing Recreational . Recreational 2018* . Existing Medical . Medical 2018*
States Likely Moving to Recreational / Adult Use in 2018*
- Vermont (Legal as of Jan 22!)
- New Jersey
- Rhode Island
States Likely Moving to Medical Use in 2018*
- South Dakota
At this point, Vermont is as good as legal. Both the House and Senate have already passed a bill to legalize recreational use of cannabis, and Gov. Phil Scott has already promised to sign it.
So congrats to Vermont! If you state is still white on the map above, make sure to contact your state representatives and let them know how you feel about cannabis.
