Percentage of Americans Living In States Which Have Passed Marijuana Laws
2016 will be a pivotal year for marijuana legalization in the US. Currently, half of the American population lives in a state where medical marijuana is legal and one-third (35%) live in a CBD-only state. Four states will vote on medical marijuana legalization in 2016, including Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Missouri, and seven states will vote on adult use laws, including California, Arizona, and Nevada and Vermont. If all the proposed measures pass, 92% of Americans will live in a state that has passed a marijuana law, including 24% who will live in a state where adult use is legal.
