by Rachel Baker on February 4, 2014

Below is a great article with incredible stats and information about the legalization of marijuana. Its also a good guide for determining which states may be next to follow Colorado and Washington in legalizing.

Also, there’s a link to a Pew Research Center Study titled: Majority Now Supports Legalizing Marijuana in the article. The link is also provided at the bottom of this post.

After Colorado and Washington went all in on marijuana legalization, activists are working hard to get their states to follow. Here’s who’s likely to go next.

As a result of this growing advocacy, laws that regulate marijuana use are changing, and quickly, leaving the federal government to figure out just how to deal with local governments that enact laws that conflict with national policy.
