Changes in state laws could usher in even more confusion for law enforcement and escalate the pressure on Congress to act.

The Mississippi Secretary of State set Nov. 3 as the date voters will decide on medical marijuana.

A year ago, marijuana legalization looked like it was on a roll in the Northeast — it had already passed in three of the region’s states and was a priority for governors in three more, including the populous New York.

Some of these would be citizen-led voter initiatives where activists collect signatures to qualify a measure for the ballot, while others would be referendums that lawmakers place before voters.

Low-level marijuana possession is no longer punishable by the threat of jail time in Hawaii.

South Dakota residents will vote on legalizing medical marijuana in 2020 after a petition calling for a ballot measure secured more than 25,000 valid signatures.
