    8 States Most Likely to Legalize Marijuana in 2018

    8 States Most Likely to Legalize Marijuana in 2018

    By Joseph Misulonas | Dec 29, 2017 | Learn, Politics

    Itís almost 2018, which means itís time to start looking ahead for the new year. California and Massachusetts will both implement recreational marijuana laws in the next year, and Maine could as well. But what states are most likely to pass new recreational laws?

    Here are the eight states most likely to legalize marijuana in 2018:

    8. Ohio

    Previous ballot initiatives aiming to legalize marijuana in Ohio have failed by large margins. But the stateís medical marijuana program is starting to pick up some momentum, so itís possible the stateís voters may have changing attitudes on cannabis. Another initiative is attempting to get on the ballot next fall, which could mean a big win for marijuana is coming.

    7. Connecticut

    Democrats in Connecticut originally wanted to include marijuana legalization in a bill for state government funding in 2017. But that didnít make the final cut. But itís highly likely theyíll push for it again next year, and with nearby Massachusetts set to legalize cannabis this summer, Connecticut may feel some pressure to get on board as well.

    6. Arizona

    In 2016, a ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana in Arizona failed by only a few percentage points. Another initiative is on its way in 2018, and considering both Nevada and California, neighbors to Arizona, will have legalized marijuana by then, itís possible Arizona citizens will want to avoid being left out.

    5. Delaware

    In 2017, a bill proposed in Delaware would legalize marijuana and regulate like alcohol. The bill even made its way through committee and will be considered by the full legislature in 2018. While itís not clear if the bill hast enough votes, itís a good sign that itís made it through the first few hurdles.

    4. Rhode Island

    Rhode Island politicians are working on a bill that would legalize marijuana that will be introduced in the first legislative session of 2018. Considering a number of East Coast states have either legalized or could soon legalize marijuana, Rhode Island may want to jump on the train before its too late.

    3. Michigan

    Michigan voters have already collected enough signatures to put an initiative on the ballot next November to legalize marijuana. Considering the initiativeís early success, we could see a big victory for marijuana next November.

    2. New Jersey

    Last month, New Jersey voters elected Democrat Phil Murphy to take over as governor. Murphy will take office in January, and one of his campaign promises was to legalize marijuana within his first 100 days. While the first 100 days may be optimistic, itís very likely heíll push for a bill to be passed before yearís end.

    1. Vermont

    Vermont is generally seen as one of the most progressive states in America, yet they are lagging slightly behind when it comes to marijuana. But that may not be the case anymore. Just this month, several prominent Vermont politicians said itís likely the state will pass a recreational marijuana bill when the legislature meets in January. Who knows, they might actually beat Maine to the punch!
