Legal pot is poised to spread further across the country this Election Day, with millions of voters casting ballots that could roll back marijuana prohibition in two states and expand access to medical cannabis in two others.

Campaigns supporting and opposing marijuana ballot measures are filling up airwaves and social media feeds with political advertisements in the run-up to the midterm elections.

They want the creation of a state-run bank to handle medicinal marijuana money.

The lucrative legal cannabis industry is again front and center this voting year as Americans head to the polls for midterm elections November 6.

Entrepreneurs and investors who are flocking to the industry say legalization is inevitable in the U.S. But while more than 60 percent of Americans support making pot legal, the politics remain fraught.

Four states will vote on ballot initiatives to decriminalize pot.
