Extract:  A record high 64% of Americans support legalizing marijuana for recreational use, according to a 2017 Gallup Poll. Support for legalization is rooted in changing perceptions of the drug’s potential harm, as well as the prospect of hundreds of millions of dollars in marijuana sales and excise tax revenue for state governments.

The growing acceptance of marijuana among Americans has also been reflected in the ballot box. Currently, eight states and Washington, D.C., have legalized recreational marijuana. The eight states are Alaska, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maine,  Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

Extract: Please be advised that due to a technical issue, the Medical Marijuana Dispensary Application page was not available the afternoon of November 14th, for approximately 15 minutes, during which a message displayed that the Application period had closed; this message was in error. The issue was quickly resolved and the Application period resumed shortly after the issue was identified. It is believed that all data for Applications in progress during this technical issue was saved. Out of an abundance of caution, however, the Dispensary Application period will be extended from 2:00 p.m. ET until 3:00 p.m. ET on Friday, November 17, 2017.
