2020 was a historic year for marijuana legalization as four states — Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota — legalized recreational marijuana for adults, and Mississippi legalized medical marijuana.
2021 could be another big year for the cannabis industry; MjBizDaily is predicting that these five states will probably legalize recreational marijuana for adults:
– New Mexico
– New York
“New York, Connecticut, Maryland, New Mexico are ripe for 2021” marijuana legalization via their legislatures, said Steve Hawkins from the MPP. “We’re at 15 (states that have legalized adult use) now, and it’s not outside the realm of possibility that we can be at 25 states” in the near future.”
In recent years, Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont legalized recreational cannabis industries. These are adding fuel to the Northeast fire. The governors in New York and Pennsylvania have openly supported legalizing marijuana for adults for some time.
