Voters went to the polls to renew Congress and elect governors in 36 states, but in cities and states across the country they also made choices in a plethora of referendums.Voters in four states -- Alaska, Florida, Oregon and Washington state -- were asked the question, be it to authorize possession, tax, sale or consumption of pot for medical or recreational purposes.It is still against federal law to consume, sell and possess cannabis, but some 20 states have either partially or fully decriminalized it -- notably including Colorado and Washington state, which took the biggest steps last year. Fixed at $7.25 by federal law, it was the subject of votes in five states (Arkansas, Alaska, Illinois, Nebraska and South Dakota) and some 20 towns and cities.Eight towns and cities voted on anti-fracking proposals.
