Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form.
So far, only Colorado and Washington state have legalized marijuana for recreational use, while other states permit medical marijuana.
Most recently, Maryland lawmakers approved bills making medical marijuana accessible to patients and decriminalizing possession of limited amounts of the drug.
Illinois has legalized medical marijuana with a law establishing a pilot program set to be implemented in January.
In some states, criminal penalties have been eliminated for small amounts of marijuana.
Colorado marked another milestone last week, in the roll-out of legal recreational marijuana — a first-of-its-kind ad campaign aimed at teens who are — or may be thinking about — using pot.
