Marijuana Policy Reforms on Election Day

california, maine, massachusetts and nevada voted on election day to end marijuana prohibition. arkansas, florida and north dakota adopted medical marijuana laws. 

montana approved an initiative to re-establish patients' access to medical marijuana providers and improve its existing medical marijuana law.

the only dim spot is arizona, where the legalization initiative is currently losing 48% to 52%, albeit\ with tens of thousands of additional ballots to be counted. the measure is likely to lose when the counting ends in nine days.

the number of states where marijuana is legal for adults doubled - from four to eight - and the first two states in the south made marijuana legal.
