In the summer of 2016, Ohio legalized medical marijuana, allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana for a wide range of health issues. Michigan would go on to legalize recreational marijuana in 2018. Illinois will be the eleventh state to legalize recreational marijuana when new legislation takes effect on January 1st, 2020. This means that two of Indiana’s neighbors have legalized marijuana for recreational uses, with a third legalizing marijuana for medical purposes. In Indiana, bills were brought forward to decriminalize or legalize marijuana for either medical or recreational purposes. However, these bills only saw their first readings, with none being brought to the floor for an actual vote.
