Lucky enough to be living in Oregon or Alaska and getting ready to celebrate you new freedom? Unfortunately your going to have to wait until this summer(Oregon) or even as long as 2016 in Alaska! Freedom comes, but slowly.

Pew Research Center released a poll earlier this year where 75% of Americans believe the sale and use of marijuana will be legal nationwide eventually, a majority opinion even among those who oppose its use.


So what states are next? Here’s a list of the states we think have the greatest chance of bring its citizens more freedom in 2015:


Full Legalization:

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Delaware
  • Maine
  • Massachusetts
  • Hawaii
  • Maryland


Medical Marijuana:

Some states still want to take baby steps, but are close to easing their into legalization with reduced. or eliminated penalties.

  • Pennsylvania
  • Missouri
  • Wisconsin


Not Gonna Happen

We wish there were more states on the verge, but looking at the remaining states, we feel its not looking good anytime soon:

  • Texas
  • Oklahoma
  • North Dakota
  • South Dakota
  • Idaho
  • Alabama
  • Georgia
  • Mississippi
  • Ohio
  • Wyoming
  • Utah
  • Kansas

If you live in the above states but feel they are closer to medical than we here at VR think, let us know in the comments!  This is something we most definitely want to be wrong about!
