The "State" of Marijana Affairs

This past 2016 election has doubled the number of recreational marijuana states to 8 and brought the total count of medical marijuana states to 28 along with D.C. excluding those 16 medical marijuana states that have limited CBD oil laws. Marijuana possession has been decriminalized in 21 states and D.C. Decriminalization means that even though a state may not have a law that permits possession or use, possession of marijuana may not face an arrest, jail time, or a criminal record for the possession of small amounts. Instead they will treat the offense like a minor traffic or civil violation or a petty offense or low level misdemeanor.
