I was wondering how should I let my gamestate classes change my vector. Here is my code so far.
	std::vector<baseGameState*> States;
	States.push_back(new MENU_STATE);

so should I try this? vector<int>::pointer ptrStates = &States.back(); [not sure if the .back() will work in this situation] and then just pass *ptrStates to my classes?

What exactly is it you want to accomplish? Do you want to allow your classes to be able to push/pop states? Then you can just give them a reference (or pointer) to the state vector. Like this:

class A {
void do_something_which_causes_a_state_change(std::vector<baseGameState*> &gs) {
gs.push_back(new SOME_STATE);

int main() {
std::vector<baseGameState *> states;
A obj;
return 0;
