In non Trump or Biden stories from the US elections, Arizona, New Jersey, South Dakota, and Montana voters all moved to end marijuana prohibition, making way for recreational use to be acceptable within their jurisdictions. Recreational use, while still prohibited federally, is now legal in 15 states in the US and in Washington, D.C while more than half of the country has opened up the medicinal market for marijuana. Maryland, Louisiana, and South Dakota were the latest states to authorize sports gambling within their borders while Nebraska voters also approved changes to its state constitution to legalize and tax casinos and voters in California backed ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft in exempting the tech companies from adhering to a labor law that would have forced drivers to be classified as employees, not independent contractors.
