Cannabis Was the Clear-Cut Winner of Election Night

Cannabis was the clear winner of the 2020 election—with nearly every cannabis bill being approved by voters across multiple states. On election night on November 3, voters in four states—Arizona, Montana, New Jersey, and South Dakota—legalized recreational cannabis for adults. In addition, Mississippi and South Dakota voters approved medical cannabis bills, opening the door to new industries in those states. Oregon also passed two related bills that will remove penalties for other types of substances.

“During the most divisive election in modern U.S. history, Americans demonstrated unity around at least one issue—cannabis policy reform,” stated Aaron Smith, co-founder and chief executive officer of the National Cannabis Industry Association. “These state-level victories will mean tens of thousands of fewer arrests and new jobs, much-needed tax revenue, and increased public safety.”
