Marijuana Election Results (2016) for California, Massachusetts, Nevada, Arizona, Montana, Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas

Marijuana Election Results Are In!

Marijuana election results are in, and 2016 voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada approved recreational marijuana initiatives Tuesday night, and several other states passed medical marijuana provisions, in what is the biggest electoral victory for marijuana reform since 2012, when Colorado and Washington first approved the drug’s recreational use.

In addition to the states above, local outlets in Maine are declaring victory for that state’s legalization measure, just a few thousand votes separate the “Yes” and “No” columns.

A similar legalization measure in Arizona did not gain sufficient support to pass, with 52 percent voter rejection.

On the medical side, constituents in Florida, North Dakota and Arkansas approved medical marijuana initiatives. Montana Voters also adopted restrictions on the already existing medical marijuana law.

Results of marijuana ballots were decisive in Florida and North Dakota. Amendment 2 of Florida’s marijuana ballot passed with 71 % support, according to the Associated Press. In North Dakota, the AP reports that 64 % approval of the medical marijuana measure.

Why pharma companies are fighting legal marijuana

Two years ago, a medical marijuana measure in Florida earned 58 % of the vote, shy of the required 60 % threshold. Continued opposition on the measure was fueled by multimillion-dollar donations from Sheldon Adelson, the Las Vegas casino magnate and GOP donor. In 2014 Adelson $5.5 million investment to defeat the measure vs. the $1.5 million he spent in Florida this year millions more fighting other state  recreational marijuana measures.
