We’ve got a long way to go, but it’s great to see the U.S. starting to go green.
Check out the most up-to-date marijuana map below to see what states have legalized cannabis recreationally, which states have legalized cannabis medically, which states legalized CBD medically, and which states need to elevate their game.
It’s important to note, however, that in the United States the use and possession of cannabis is still illegal under federal law for any reason, because of the Controlled Substances Act of 1970. So not only do many U.S. states conflict with each other on lifting cannabis prohibition as you can see below, but most states are disagreeing with federal law, too.
