American FlagIt's been over 20 years since the first US state successfully passed laws legalizing medical marijuana (tip of the hat to you, California). Nowadays, more than half of US states have similarly created their own legal track to transport suffering and ill residents to the, very real, medical benefits of marijuana.

Massachusetts Marijuana Laws logo leafbuyer blogMassachusetts Question 4, also known as the Massachusetts Marijuana Legalization Initiative, was on the ballot November 8th, 2016, and passed by fifty-four percent for recreational marijuana. It was a huge step up from their very small medical marijuana program, and allowed for adults aged 21 and over who are not participating in the medical marijuana program to legally grow and possess recreational marijuana while simultaneously licensing commercial cannabis production and retail sales.
