    3 states, Colorado, Washington and Oregon have voter initiatives on the 2012 Presidential ballot where the people of each state will vote to either legalize, tax and regulate recreational use of marijuana for adults or deny legalization.

    The polling:

    Colorado 60% in favor of legalization
    Washington 60% in favor of legalization
    Oregon 37% in favor of legalization

    I think it's going to happen, and it won't be long before
    I move to either one of those three states.

    Won't pass. I have always said they can legalize all the drugs they want. As long as I can waste anyone on them who commits a crime against me.

    If you think pot smokers are the ones running around committing violent crime. You clearly don't have a clue what you are talking about.

    It won't matter if a state legalizes marijuana. Federal law supersedes state law and the Congress has been sufficiently bribed by the liquor, pharmaceutical, and various other corporate "lobbies" to keep marijuana illegal. And it wouldn't surprise me to learn that additional bribes are secretly distributed to the Congress by marijuana trafficking cartels to maintain the prohibition.

    If that were not the case marijuana would be fully legal in California by now. Pressure from the corporate lobbies is strong enough to cause Obama to totally withdraw from the issue in spite of the fact that he has admitted to smoking marijuana "frequently" and there is no way he could intelligently justify maintaining the prohibition.

    Until this bribery is curtailed marijuana will never be legalized -- regardless of what the voting public wishes.

    Fine with me. I don't blame you either. Most states already have a castle doctrine do they not?
    You can only go against the peoples will for so long until it becomes either a very stupid political stance to take or something that can have bad consequences on your life...eventually I assume next 15 years politicians against legalizing marijuana are going to find it hard to be elected.
