15 Largest Cities That Have Decriminalized Marijuana

There are currently eight states (Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Alaska, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada) in America that have legalized marijuana. But that still leaves 42 states where marijuana is still illegal in the United States. Luckily, a handful of cities have taken the step to de-criminalize marijuana even though their states have not done so.

Here are the 15 largest cities in non-legal states that have passed marijuana decriminalization:

After making progress on marijuana reform, the legalization movement has stalled in two New England states. Cannabis became legal in Vermont last July, but state lawmakers did not put a regulated market for marijuana in place at that time. So while adults in Vermont can possess, grow and consume cannabis, they can't buy it legally.
