If voters in all four states approve their questions, 2018 will end with 32 medical marijuana states and 11 that allow cannabis for adults.

Political oddsmakers give cannabis reform advocates reason to be optimistic heading into the November 2018 election.

There is unprecedented support for marijuana legalization, and advocates say the midterm elections could mark the point of no return for a movement that has been gathering steam for years.
