As Trump was elected to be the United States next president, many people are wondering what that means for the future of the legalization of marijuana. On election night, there were 9 different states that had legalization of marijuana on their ballot. 4 states had to choose if they wanted to legalize medical marijuana and 5 states had to choose if they wanted to legalize recreational marijuana. The results of the ballots included recreational legalization approved in California, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Maine. Trump has stated in the past that he has been in support of the legalization of marijuana but that might change when he steps into the White House. He may start to face pressure from the more conservative republicans that he will be working with including his Vice President, Mike Pence. Only time will tell of what is going to happen with the legalization of marijuana during the Trump administration.
