Hawaii Could Be The Next State To Legalize Marijuana

Hawaii Could Be The Next State To Legalize Marijuana
World

Get your Maui Wowie ready, as Hawaii could join Colorado and Washington to become the third state to legalize marijuana for recreational use in the United States.

The Drug Policy Action Group interviewed 604 Hawaii voters last year and discovered that 57 percent of those surveyed were in favor of decriminalizing the use and possession of marijuana.

The study, first brought to our attention by Courthouse News Service, found that decriminalization could save Hawaii about $9 million annually in law enforcement costs, since cops wouldn’t waste so much time and so many resources on pot smokers.

Hawaii may not be the only state in favor of legalization, as a poll conducted after November’s election found that 48 percent of voters favored “legalizing the possession of small amounts of marijuana for personal use.”

The National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws has predicted that other states likely to consider legalizing marijuana this year are Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Alaska, Arizona, Montana, Minnesota and Nevada.
