In the United States, cannabis legalization is spreading like wildfire (sorry, California), and now experts predict the next five states to legalize weed. There is currently a grand total of eight states, plus Washington D.C., that have successfully passed recreational cannabis. So now, the question on everyone’s mind is: who’s going to be next?
Trying to predict political and legal outcomes is a national pastime.
In recent years, cannabis acceptance has been making strides. And as a result, the legalization of recreational weed has been spreading. So far, there are eight states (out of 50) which now allow adults to purchase marijuana without a medical card. The states that have passed recreational weed are Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada. Recreational cannabis is also legal in Washington, DC.
