After Election Day, access to marijuana likely to reach all-time high across nation
DENVER — Nearly 60 million Americans may wake up Nov. 9 to find voters in their states have abolished long-standing marijuana prohibitions, a three-fold expansion for legal cannabis across the country.
Another 24 million Americans could find themselves in states with newly legal medical marijuana use, a smaller but still significant expansion of legalized pot around the United States. Already, half of the states permit some form of medical marijuana use, and more than half of all Americans live in a state that has approved medical marijuana.
California, experts say, will likely play the most significant role in cannabis legalization on Nov. 8. Voters in our most populous state are widely expected to approve the “Adult Use of Marijuana Act,” adding nearly 40 million names to the list of people who live in a state with legal pot.

This Former Pot Smuggler Is Outlaw Folk’s Newest Star
Last week, Todd Snider’s mentoree, Rorey Carroll, joined him at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City. The tour and collaboration have been long and strong, and Todd’s pride in his discovery shines through.
If only Rorey had as much faith.
“Welcome to an awkward 35 minutes with Rorey Carroll,” she began, moving on to confess to having snorted Adderall and taken “a few” shots of tequila before coming out to perform. She did look nervous and a little drunk as she told us about her last gig in NYC, playing in the subway tunnels for change. The change was clearly drastic on her psyche and in the cozy Gramercy Theatre, but she’d earned it, whether or not she owned it.
