MONTPELIER, Vt. — First came Colorado and Washington. Then Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C. Now, advocates for legal marijuana are looking to New England, hoping this part of the country will open a new front in their efforts to expand legalization nationwide.

At the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs in New York on Tuesday, Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto unveiled his support for the legalization of medical marijuana.
