There are also 12 states that have pending legislation to legalize marijuana for medical purposes.

But things aren't completely peachy for medicinal pot advocates. CNBC reports that the tide may be shifting against the drug, especially with the federal government cracking down on dispensaries in several states.

Still, on a day like 4/20, it seems fitting to note the states that allow their citizens to legally use marijuana under certain circumstances.
