Ready or not, election season has begun. Last month, 20 presidential candidates from the Democratic ticket held two separate debates (10 candidates for each debate), with the field having now grown to roughly two dozen hopefuls.
But this isn't the only battle brewing. There's another topic that's garnering a lot of buzz throughout America, and it's going to get its share of the limelight in 2020. I'm talking about the green rush, marijuana.
According to Gallup's latest poll, a record 66% of American adults surveyed this past October supported the idea of legalizing cannabis on a national level. That's up from a mere 25% who supported legalization in 1995, the year before California became the first state to give the green light to medical marijuana. Today, 33 states have approved the use of medical marijuana for select ailments, with 11 also allowing recreational pot consumption.
Perhaps the bigger question is: Which states will be looking to legalize recreational and/or medical marijuana in 2020?
