Marijuana State Laws

Marijuana legalization has been a hot-button topic for decades now even before California became the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996. Both sides have their reasons for or against legalizing marijuana for both medical and recreational use and it’s a topic that will continue to be debated for decades to come.

2017 Marijuana Legalization

How Many States Have Legal Marijuana?

Currently, over half of U.S. states plus Washington D.C. have legalized some form of medical marijuana while 8 states have legalized recreational marijuana use. With ever changing marijuana laws, it can be difficult to know which states have legalized cannabis for medical use or for recreational use and which states have yet to legalize any form marijuana use.

As an employer, it can be difficult to decide whether to include marijuana drug testing in your pre-employment drug testing or random drug testing programs. It is important to note that even though marijuana has been legalized in many states, employees in these states are not exempt from a THC test and it’s still legal to perform drug screens that include marijuana drug testing.

We know it can be confusing to keep up with all of the different laws so we have put together a table with current marijuana laws for each state.
