  2. It's already legal in some of those states...

    What are you basing your numbers on?
  3. Few questions, is this recreational or medical legalization?

    What are you basing your numbers off of, actual research and studies?

    Also, I know that VA has a much higher percentage than 33%.

    I live out west and the vibe, feel and environment makes me think everyone else in the US wants legal Marijuana, but when I return to the deep south I find tremendous resistance to change from anyone I talk to. Many are smoking but the vast majority are against smoking legally no matter what the circumstances are but that actually does not shock me. I grew up in the south and lived there 1/2 my life and I always saw resistance to change. I can assure you that many of you that do not travel that traveling with pot from a legal state is WEIRD. The fact that I can light up legally in New Mexico and the second I pass into Texas I could go to jail as if my medical issues magically disappear.....amazing.

    More than 1/2 in New Mexico (That voted) wanted decriminalization and we didn't get that due to our republican Gov. THIS is the biggest problem and threat we face, not the public opinion, it is the few key people that will never in a million years lessen their grip and give in no matter what everybody else thinks. Even when you take your time to cast a vote it can mean nothing changes. Later on we were told it was an "Public opinion" item.

    If you guys learn nothing this election cycle it should be that your elected officials will not do as you wish because they know what's better for you more than you do........

    The only reason any of the laws have changed recently is a sour economy, heavy taxes and pot legalization all came in the same box.
  5. Florida got a 56% vote for yes on medical marijuana in 2014 when they voted on it. May i ask what you are basing your percentages on?
