2018 was a landmark year for the legal cannabis industry, as the national market for growing weeds grew rapidly, and five more states legalized it, reflecting widespread public support.

This year Vermont and Michigan became the ninth and tenth states that legalized recreational marijuana, which is also legal in the District of Columbia. And voters in Missouri, Oklahoma and Utah overwhelmingly approved the voting measures that make medical marijuana legal. This means that 33 states, as well as the District of Columbia, currently endorse the illicit drug for medical use, which raises the question of whether the United States will follow Canada’s example of legalizing marijuana throughout the country.
