Massachusetts, California, Oregon, Maine, and Nevada are most likely to be the next five states to legalize marijuana, based on careful analysis. In the near term, two basic things are required before a state is likely to legalize marijuana. The state needs to allow citizen ballot initiatives and have an electorate ready to embrace reform.

Existing-home sales rose 2.1% in October, with the number coming in slightly above expectations, although the previous month’s numbers were revised down.

In Nevada you will still be able to go to the polls and vote for no one. The state is unique in that for decades it has given voters the option of “none of the above” on the ballot and it will remain that way for at least this upcoming election.

Other states like Florida and Ohio may be bigger, but Nevada and its 6 electoral votes will be key in the fall.
