Five states will now legalize marijuana for both recreational and medical use.

During the November elections, A majority of New Jersey and Arizona residents voted yes on ballot measures to make recreational marijuana legal. Voters in South Dakota approved marijuana for medical use.

Montana voted for two initiatives to legalize, regulate and tax recreational marijuana for adults 21 and older, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

South Dakota has a second ballot measure that would legalize recreational marijuana, but the votes are still being counted.

This question isn't so much as the federal government not enforcing already existing law but rather States not being challenged or being able to put legalization on the ballot when it's a crime?
