And yes, to confirm, recreational marijuana means weed you can smoke for fun.
But dont light up just yet. Even though the votes went through, that doesnt necessarily mean recreational weed is legal in those states right at this second.
Wait untilthe laws fully go into effect.
Although weed has been legalized in these states, its not legal for all people to smoke there.
Each state has age limits imposed on the consumption of marijuana. Just like with alcohol, you have to be 21 and over in order to legally smoke weed.
