Marijuana is started to be legalized in more and more states throughout the United States. There are currently 4 states that have legalized marijuana recreationally and 24 states that have legalized for medical marijuana for use. Some of the 24 states that have it legalized for medical use have been discussing legalizing it for recreational use in addition. In addition to all of the states that have started to legalize marijuana, there have been more than 50 legislations that have aimed to legalize and decriminalize the drug. While some states have started to decriminalize the drug, which stops people from being jailed for being in possession, they have yet to legalize it.
