Do You Think Marijuana Will Be Legal In Your Lifetime? When I mean legal, I mean where an adult could go to a store and buy Marijuana and use recreationally, similar to alcohol. Most of my feelings sway towards it NOT being legal within my lifetime. Not only is it hard enough for states to decrimanilize it themselves, it seems so far fetched for it to change on a Federal level. It also seems to be a back burner issue to most politicians. Anywho, when a law is fucking stupid, fuck the stupid law.
