The Jamestown settlement in Virginia is recognized as the first U.S. Colony.   The Commonwealth was also home to half the battles in the Civil War due its strategic Mid-Atlantic location in the middle of the Nation. Confederate States to the South, and the Union to the North.

In 2022, historical Virginia remains a battleground state.  For both National elections and Cannabis legalization.  In 2022 Virginia is set to be the first southern U.S. state to legalize adult use cannabis and roll out recreational dispensaries.  However due to political tussling, adult use dispensaries and cannabis sales will not begin until 2024.

Medical cannabis has been available at one of 10 state licensed medical pot shops sprinkled through the Old Dominion State, including dispensaries in Virginia Beach, Richmond, and Norfolk.  Home grows and possession of small amounts of weed have been legal since 2021.  Virginians also have vast options for Delta 8 dispensaries selling both CBD and potent hemp-derived cannabinoids.  Lastly adult residents can opt to buy weed online from an online dispensary selling legal cannabinoids.
