Where in the U.S. is marijuana legal?

With every state except three legalizations of marijuana in at least some form, this country is a little greener than it was a few years ago, but now there are numerous different state laws on the legalization of recreational marijuana. Statutory states like California and Colorado provide publicly available pharmacies, while in places like Alabama and Georgia, which are technically medical marijuana states, possession can still lead to crimes.
Each state has its own weed laws. It’s… a little chaotic.
Because there are so many different laws, attitudes, and regulations for cannabis in the United States, we have created a legal weed map to help people understand the many regulations around what is still federal, technically, a controlled substance.America

How many states have legalized weed?

So far there are 11 total recreational weed states, but 2020 could lead to a few more becoming members. It is predicted that New York, New Mexico, Minnesota and Illinois will become fully legal pretty soon. As of now, 47 out of 50 states allow some form of medical weed.
Every U.S. state, except South Dakota, Nebraska and Idaho, has passed at least some legislation that legally allows medicinal cannabis use, although many are very, very restrictive.
For example, CBD oil with low THC is the only legal form of non-medical cannabis in the following states: Alabama, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
As of now, 26 out of 50 states have had some decriminalization of weed under the law, while others still have very strict laws similar to the federal standard.

LegalWhere is Weed Legal in the U.S.?

When asked “How many states have weed legalized?”, most people refer to the recreational marijuana states. The states that have legalized marijuana are Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont and Washington. It’s important to note that even in states where pot is legal, there are different laws about how much you can take, keep and transport – of course, driving while you’re high is a bad idea. But there are important differences: some states, such as Vermont, only allow cannabis plants to grow at home, while others, such as Washington, do not allow cannabis plants to be grown at home except in special circumstances.

A guide to marijuana laws by the state

As you can see on our weed map, American marijuana laws can get a little tricky. Besides knowing which states have legalized marijuana, it’s important to know some of the most important, granular information, such as how much you’re allowed to own, if you can transport it, and who can participate.
We’re going to take a closer look at the weed laws of each state and go into much more detail than our marijuana map where places can be dangerous or OK to smoke.
