A lot has changed in the world of cannabis after the 2020 election. More and more states are considering loosening restrictions and embracing the many positives that come with cannabis use. Let’s take a look at the five states legalizing cannabis in 2021!

1. Arizona

After passing ​Proposition 207​, adults over the age of 21 will be allowed to possess, transfer and consume up to one ounce of cannabis. With a similar proposition that previously failed in 2016, it’s surprising to see a shift in votes for the use of recreational marijuana.

2. Montana

Montana has been working with two initiatives, ​190 and 118​ to legalize cannabis use for those over 21, similarly to Arizona. They’re also hoping to allow those serving cannabis-related sentences to apply to resentence or be acquitted of their crimes.

3. New Jersey

Medical use of cannabis is already legal in New Jersey but will soon allow personal, non-medical use. It’s nice to see them heading in the right direction!

4. South Dakota

Unlike all other states, South Dakota will be the first state to legalize medicinal and recreational marijuana at the exact same time! This was unusual, as South Dakota currently has strict rules against even a small possession of cannabis.

5. Mississippi

Mississippi has recently been looking at two initiatives working towards medicinal cannabis use. If they do, they’ll become one of the first states in the south to legalize cannabis.

While there’s no guarantee that cannabis will be legalized in each of these five states this year, progress has been made. We’re looking forward to what’s to come in the near future!
