Total ‘Yes’ Votes by Lawmakers in States Which Passed Medical Marijuana Through the LegislatureOf the 25 states that have legalized medical marijuana, 14 have done so through the legislative process, not through a voter-decided ballot initiative.  Of these, all but Hawaii and New Mexico are in the eastern half of the US, suggesting more receptivity to legislative legalization in eastern states.
