Eight of nine statewide cannabis initiatives were passed in yesterday’s election.
There were nine statewide cannabis initiatives up for a vote in yesterday’s election. Eight of these were victorious, with the only defeat coming in Arizona (a state where the pharmaceutical industry donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in opposition).
Of these initiatives, four legalize cannabis for all uses, three legalize cannabis for medical purposes and one (Montana) restores patient rights revoked by the legislature.
