What’s good. A few months ago Congressman Jared Polis (above) told the Colorado Independent that with a majority of states before Congress made any changes on a federal level, otherwise, legalizing marijuana. Currently 16 of the 50 states, including the District of Columbia have legalized medical cannabis, with Ohio moving in the same direction. Full story here.
Karen O’Keefe, of MPP, says she sees a scenario by which 27 states have legalized medical marijuana by 2014. In addition to Ohio, other states apparently on the cusp include Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Arkansas, Idaho, North Dakota and New Hampshire.
Once a majority of states have passed laws, she says it becomes much more likely that Congress will pass a bill like the one recently introduced by Rep. Barney Frank, D-MA, Rep. Jared Polis and others that would actually legalize marijuana federally, leaving it to each state to either keep it illegal at the state level or to legalize, regulate and tax it.
It looks like once again the big wigs are moving in the right direction. Roll one up to celebrate, because its all coming together greenies. Much love, peace.
