The 2014 midterm elections have come and gone, with winners and losers plotting their next moves for the future of America (or their party). One undeniable victor of the recent vote? Marijuana. Sticky icky. The weed which has always had deep roots in American society is now legal in more of America than ever before.
Alaska, Oregon, and Washington D.C. joined Colorado and Washington state in the legalization of the drug for recreational use. Each state has its own guidelines for how they're approaching legalization, but right now they're allowing for both possession on your person and the right to grow plants in your home. The city of South Portland, Maine also passed legalization, and the unincorporated American territory of Guam allowed for the use of medicinal marijuana.
Despite this electoral success for weed enthusiasts, cannabis didn't do well everywhere. Florida pulled a Florida and dropped the ball on the vote, only securing 58 of the 60 percent of votes needed to allow marijuana to flourish in the Sunshine State. Maybe next time the stoners will skip the wake-and-bake and make their way to the polls.
