4. agreed

look at the chart for support for legalization in comparison to internet usage/graphic based web design, etc.

of course that also corresponds, roughly, with the first legal medical mj in 1996, so correlation, not causation - but I'm sure the free flow and sharing of information has contributed to this change.

CO demonstrated that the sky does not fall with legal cannabis - yet those states first in on legal cannabis will reap the greatest rewards via taxation.

Simply by doing something, and letting others see the reality, rather than the propaganda, change can happen.

I doubt that anyone would be upset, for instance, if marijuana were decriminalized at the federal level, while letting states set their own laws. I wish this would happen, and it would align with the justice dept's attempts to bring more equality to the law in sentencing as well as lessening the sentences of nonviolent offenders.

no need to keep filling prisons with arrests for possession - and this is the bulk of the arrests for mj - and for the entire drug war.
