Approximately two years ago, voters in Colorado and the state of Washington made historic decisions to legalize marijuana for recreational sale and use, running counter to the position of anti-pot moralists, four star generals in the war on drugs and 100 years of prohibition. In January 2014, these policies began to take effect, with pot shops opening for business for the first time from sea to shining sea.
Decriminalization One State at a Time
Once regularly joked about, legalization now appears to be an undeniable reality. In mid-April of this year, no fewer than eleven states were considering some form of legislation to allow marijuana to be sold over the counter, and at least a dozen others are considering medical and/or commercial decriminalization. Tired of the U.S. government running in place on the progress treadmill, many states are cautiously weighing the potential benefits of legalization, moved by a wide range of arguments on individual liberty but also by the prospective infusion of dollars into their respective economies. As this is occurring, proponents have quickly promoted marijuana as the medical prescription the states need to create new jobs, cut costs by keeping nonviolent drug offenders out of jail, and subsequently create a stream of revenue where there once was none.
