Montana adult-use wins

Montana’s twin-measure victory also wraps up a clean sweep for statewide legalization measures across the country.

South Dakota legalized medical and adult-use marijuana

Constitutional Amendment A legalizes the adult use of cannabis passed.

Oregon decriminalizes all drugs and legalizes medical psilocybin

Oregon’s two legalization measures, 109 and 110 have passed.

Measure 109 (legalizing the medical use of psilocybin) won with 56% of the vote.

Meanwhile, Measure 110 (decriminalizing all drugs) won with 59% among Oregon voters.

Arizona’s Prop. 207, legalizing the adult use of marijuana passed.

Arizona the 13th state to legalize the adult use of cannabis.

Mississippi legalizes medical marijuana

Its a huge victory for the legalization movement, the culturally and politically conservative state of Mississippi has legalized the medical use of cannabis.

“Garden State voters spoke resoundingly,” commented NORML Executive Director Erik Altieri. “They are demanding their lawmakers end the failed policy of marijuana criminalization, and instead pursue a more sensible path of regulation and legalization.”

“Because Question 1 is a non-binding, legislatively referred ballot question, the New Jersey legislature must now take immediate action to draft and implement enabling legislation in a manner that is in accordance with voters’ sentiments,” said Carly Wolf, NORML’s state policies coordinator.

This is a victory for social justice given that Black residents of New Jersey are 3.5 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana than white residents despite similar usage rates.”

Washington DC decriminalized psychedelic plants

Initiative 81, the Entheogenic Plants and Fungus Policy Act of 2020, makes certain psychedelic drug crimes the “lowest enforcement priority” of the District’s Metropolitan Police Department. Voters passed it 76-23.

Which plants?

  • Ibogaine
  • DMT (Dimethyltryptamine)
  • Mescaline
  • Psilocybin
  • Psilocyn

Florida legalization advocates are breathing easier

It looks like Florida’s Amendment 4, which would have made it much more difficult to legalize adult-use cannabis, went down in defeat.
