Michigan, Vermont, New Jersey: The states trying to legalize marijuana in 2018

The marijuana movement is charging ahead.

To date eight states — California, Colorado, Nevada to name a few — have legalized weed for recreational use since 2012. And the trend continues.

This year, several states all across the country are looking to legalize and, in turn, rake in millions of dollars in tax revenue.

Even with the Trump administration’s announcement last week that it would scrap an Obama-era policy offering legal shelter for state-sanctioned marijuana sales, organizers and lawmakers are forging forward with legalization efforts.
