Arizona legalized cannabis for medical use in 2010 and for recreational use in 2020. It is legal for Arizona medical marijuana patients and anyone 21 or older to buy cannabis products from Arizona dispensaries.
This November, five states will be voting on recreational marijuana legalization for adults 21 years and older. Currently, 19 states it total (and Washington, D.C.) have legalized cannabis use for adults. However, cannabis is still illegal on a federal level.
The 5 states are:
- North Dakota
- South Dakota
Ballot initiatives are up for vote in all five of these states in this November’s midterm elections. If they all vote to legalize recreational cannabis, then half the nation will have legalized it at a state level.
