How Much Longer Will It Be Until States Move Forward With Marijuana Legalization?
Even though marijuana is being sold medicinally in several states, God’s greatest gift to mankind is still technically illegal from a federal perspective. This means that the federal government can in fact override the states’ decisions to legalize marijuana for their citizens.
Yes, we know. It’s bullshit.
And the majority of the country agrees. A recent Reason-Rupe Public Opinion poll shows that much more Americans are against federal interference with states laws regarding the legalization of marijuana.
According to the poll, 72 percent do not want the federal government to arrest any marijuana users in states such as Colorado or Washington, while only 24 percent want federal law enforcement deployment.
In terms of growing and/or selling marijuana independently (which is illegal in Washington), 68 percent don’t want the federal government to make arrests and 64 percent don’t even want the feds to arrest people for selling marijuana.
This is why the most surprising result was to the big question, whether marijuana should be entirely legalized or not, 47 percent said yes and 49 percent said no.
Will this poll help the White House get the picture? Probably not. But does it assure us that the rest of the country’s heart is in the right place? Absolutely. The army continues to grow and eventually, we will be unstoppable.
