Colorado and Washington may have legalized marijuana, but the rest of the country is still behind when it comes to this movement. However, we’re starting to see more and more states stand behind legalization. Here are 6 states that are oh-so-close.

The legalization movement is in full swing. Who's next? Taking a look at medicinal use, public opinion & past legislation in each state, here are the ones we think will soon be legalizing marijuana.

  • Nevada

    Public support for legalization is strong if tax revenue is put towards education. Though there isn't currently a strong movement, a vote on legalization will likely take place in the next 2 years.

  • California

    California was the first state to decriminalize marijuana (since 1996), and is home to the first dispensary. Although initiatives to legalize have failed in the past, there is tremendous support.

  • Alaska

    Alaska has decriminalized medical use of marijuana since 2007, and possession of up to 4 ounces of marijuana in private is already legal. A ballot in November will likely legalize this northern state.

  • Oregon

    Medical marijuana has been decriminalized since 2008, & in 2012, a legalization vote fell short by just 4%. 57% of voters now support recreational marijuana use, making legalization very likely.

  • New York

    New York is the latest state to pass legislation to support medical marijuana, with much of the state supporting the decision. Though there is no ballot scheduled, the movement is gaining momentum.

  • Florida

    The Florida House recently voted overwhelmingly for decriminalizing marijuana for those who suffer from severe ailments. A November ballot will decide whether medical marijuana will be fully legal.
