While most eyes have been set on the presidential race during the 2016 election, Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada and California all held a vote to legalize recreational marijuana, a decision that could potentially shift the nation on a cultural and economic level.

Paving the road ahead of them, Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington have all legalized, regulated and taxed marijuana for recreational use by adults, similar to laws that govern alcohol use. Additionally, Washington D.C. also legalized cannabis possession and cultivation for personal use. If all five states pass their ballots, cannabis will be legal for nearly one-fifth of the US population. 

Here are the results as they come in:

Massachusetts votes for recreational marijuana

Question 4 passed in Massachusetts, which will allow people 21 and older to use, grow and possess marijuana. The ballot was extremely close leading up to the final results, which definitely kept plenty of cannabis enthusiasts in the state on the edge of their seats...............

Election Day Marks a Major Turning Point for Marijuana Legalization

Today’s vote is a huge victory for advocates who have spent decades fighting for legalization.

 

By Jared Keller

 

On November 8th, millions of Americans went to the polls to tell their state governments where they stand on marijuana legalization. And the people have spoken: Green is good.

By Tuesday evening, California, Maine, and Massachusetts had voted to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, Washington state, and the District of Columbia already permitted recreational marijuana, while another 25 states permit medical use. As of November 9th, some seven states (plus D.C.) will permit recreational marijuana consumption, pushing public acceptance of the drug to a record high among states.

On Election Day, there were initiatives around regulating marijuana use on the ballot in eight states: Arizona, California, Florida, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nevada, and North Dakota (in Arkansas, Issue 7 was disqualified from the ballot by the state Supreme Court, according to the Cannabist). While medical marijuana legislation has become a regular fixture of national ballot initiatives, five states (Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada) encompassing 82 million voters — more than a quarter of the population — were considering outright legalization for recreational use. In the month ahead of Election Day, polls showed outright legalization winning in all five states, though as of this writing Nevada and Arizona had narrowly rejected their respective legalization initiatives.........
