As Arizona’s medical marijuana industry continues to develop, other pro-marijuana actions are underway in Arizona and other states throughout the country.
Almost 30 states and the District of Columbia are considering some type of marijuana law reform legislation this year. The laws include bills that cover marijuana legalization for adults, medical marijuana programs, decriminalization, and hemp cultivation.
Arizona currently has two reform bills simultaneously pending. One about legalization for adults and the other for marijuana possession decriminalization.
Currently there are 14 states considering marijuana legalization for adults: Arizona, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Wisconsin.
12 states and the District of Columbia are considering types of marijuana-related decriminalization: Alabama, Arizona, DC, Hawaii, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Wyoming.
11 states are considering establishing medical marijuana programs: Florida, Kansas, Kentucky, Hawaii, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
3 states are considering industrial hemp cultivation: Indiana, New York, and Tennessee.
Before long every state in the country will likely be a part of the marijuana industry; whether it be marijuana legalization or marijuana for medical purposes.
