Cannabis Legislation Updates: General Election 2020

The cannabis industry breathed a collective exhale when the results of this year’s historic election came in. It was a big year for cannabis policy reform, with laws passed in five states to legalize marijuana use. Colorado opened the door to recreational use when it passed the first such law (Ammendment 64) in the country in 2014. Now, a short six years later, these newly passed recreational use laws bring the total number of states to fifteen.

The full list of cannabis legislation updates from the 2020 general election are below.
