Within the last few years, pot smokers have seen a number of US States turn completely legal, while our neighbors to the North and South begin to transition into more relaxed cannabis legislation. In Canada, new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promises to get start on the issue of cannabis reform “Right Away”, while Mexico’s highest court declared that the illegality of cannabis is highly unconstitutional.

In a recent survey cultivated by Morning Consult, 55% of registered voters in the U.S. raised their hands to the idea of bringing a swift and concise end to marijuana prohibition. In November 2016, Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Nevada will all vote to legalize recreational marijuana. And if the fresh crop of recent polling data is correct, greater access to legal marijuana in the U.S. could soon become the new norm. (*More 2015 polls showing support for legalization: Gallup 58 percent support legalization; Pew 53 percent support legalization; CBS News 53 percent support legalization.)
