South Dakota residents will vote on legalizing medical marijuana in 2020 after a petition calling for a ballot measure secured more than 25,000 valid signatures.

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) finalized its plans to authorize the cultivation of 3,200,000 grams of marijuana for research purposes next year -- a 30 percent increase from 2019’s quota.

New Jersey residents will decide whether to legalize marijuana in the Garden State, after both houses of the state Legislature voted Monday to put the question on the 2020 ballot.

For the first time in history, a congressional committee has approved a bill to end federal marijuana prohibition.

Next year, a handful of state legislatures will seriously consider cannabis legalization, and voters in up to 10 states could face a question about the legalization of cannabis for medical or adult use on their November ballots.

Tuesday’s state and local elections across the U.S. saw several gains for the marijuana reform movement, as well as some potential setbacks.
