Three Major U.S. States Poised To Legalize Recreational Cannabis in 2016

A new chart from the Marijuana Business Daily show that America's four states with legal, recreational marijuana markets are going to have some company this fall - especially if the poll numbers in three key states hold up.

There's especially strong support for recreational cannabis legalization in California, where voters support legalization by a solid 60 percent, according to a February poll by Probolsky Research. The main ballot initiative seems to be the one sponsored by Sean Parker, but there are also others being put forward like the one sponsored by Americans for Policy Reform.

From a public support perspective, Massachusetts and Michigan are also looking good with more than half - 53 percent of voters in each state - voicing support for legalizing recreational cannabis, according to a UMass Amherst study released in February and an EPIC-MRA poll performed in March.

Arizona, however, could run into difficulty, according to a poll released this month: only 43 percent of voters support legalization, with 49 percent oppose, and 8 percent are unsure.

'South Park' is well known for satirizing pretty much everything happening in current pop culture, and the cannabis industry is no exception. Last week, the popular adult cartoon released a satirical ad for their fictional cannabis brand, Tegridy Farms. The mock brand was originally introduced in a South Park episode that aired last October on the same day that Canada moved to legalize recreational cannabis nationwide. The new Tegridy Farms ad takes shots at the current landscape of the cannabis industry by claiming that it's being run by "a bunch of young corporate banker types" who pretend to be interested in repairing the wrongs done by the War on Drugs, but they're really only interested in making "an easy buck for themselves." "Fuck those guys," says the video's narrator.
