Decriminalization vs. Legalization: What It All Means for You | Discover Marijuana

The legal status of cannabis in America is changing rapidly. Whether cannabis is legal, decriminalized, or fully-illegal depends on where you are in the United States. The situation can even differ city-by-city, as many cities have chosen to decriminalize marijuana, but state laws still forbid it.

Attorney J.D. Lauritzen says cannabis exists in something akin to a petri dish of American democracy. State and municipal government leaders can learn from each other as they develop their cannabis laws and regulations.

Over the last few decades, dozens of states have implemented medical marijuana programs. Several others have legalized adult-use (recreational) cannabis. A few states are still outlawing cannabis completely.

What about marijuana’s status as a Schedule I substance? Zion Pharmaceuticals Chief Scientist Blake Smith says the federal laws and regulations surrounding the drug are holding up FDA-guided studies.

Watch this episode for details on the shifting legality of cannabis across our nation.
