In Arizona, Montana, New Jersey and South Dakota, voters legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. While in Mississippi and South Dakota (a separate law from the recreational one) voters legalized medical marijuana.
Along similar lines, Oregon voters decriminalized (not legalized) all drugs including cocaine and heroin. Additionally, the State’s voters also legalized the use of psilocybin, found in magic mushrooms for supervised therapeutic uses. In doing so, Oregon became the first U.S. State (in the modern era) to decriminalize all drugs.
In Washington D.C. voters decriminalized psychedelic plants.
Ultimately, marijuana is now legalized in 15 States and D.C., although D.C. still does not allow for sales.
