Located in the western United States, Utah is surrounded by states that have legalized cannabis for recreational use. California, Colorado, and Nevada all have booming recreational and medical cannabis industries. In November 2018, Utah joined the movement when 52% of Utah voters approved Proposition 2, which legalized medical marijuana for individuals with certain conditions. Opposition to Prop 2 caused state lawmakers to pass a compromise bill in December 2018.
