Adult-use cannabis laws
Eleven states (Alaska, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington) and the District of Columbia have laws to regulate the sale, consumption, and taxation of cannabis for adults 21 and older.
Medical Cannabis Laws
A total of 33 states and the District of Columbia have medical cannabis laws in place that have legalized the use of cannabis for qualifying medical conditions. Of the 33 states with medical cannabis policies in place, five states (California, Maine, Massachusetts, Missouri, and Oklahoma) and the District of Columbia have full medical access, which means that doctors can recommend cannabis for any medical use they see fit. Meanwhile 28 states permit the use of medical cannabis for only a limited number of conditions prescribed by the state legislature (or, in a few instances, the relevant regulatory authority). This approach is flawed, as it neglects many patients who could benefit from medical cannabis.
