Michigan

There has been a lot of talk that Michigan will be the first state in the Mid-west to legalize marijuana for recreational use. Marijuana is currently decriminalized on a state level in Michigan.

Maine

Marijuana was successfully decriminalized in Maine and is treated like a minor traffic stop. Many supporters believe it could be the next state to legalize for recreational use.

New York

The compassionate care act was signed earlier this year by Governor Cuomo. They have also decriminalized marijuana possession of under 25 grams. Recreational marijuana is expected to be put to vote in upcoming years.

Massachusetts

If law makers to not decide to legalize in 2016, there is an initiative that will be launched by supporters that will attempt to legalize recreational marijuana.

Minnesota
