    The Federal Government can make weed legal , but they can't make a company hire someone who does the old "piss and miss". Insurance companies and workman's comp. will battle any law such as legal weed.

    The entire courtroom work group (cops, lawyers, DA, judges, politicians, DEA) will battle such laws. Doesn't matter if over half the country breaks those laws, unless those people start basing their votes on it.

    Keep in mind that even in states where it's legal, the feds can go in and make arrests

    I went with 5 to 10 years.

    Once the current "pe-paw" generation of elected officials moves on to greener pastures, and the next generation of elected officials gains control, we'll see things move faster on this front.

    While maybe not completely "legal" in all 50 states, I would certainly hope it'd be decriminalized in all 50 states by then.

    That being said, as it's been stated by others, I think once some true numbers start rolling in regarding how much money can be made off selling legal marijuana, it won't take long for many states to jump on that bandwagon.

    5 years might be too quick, but by ten years from now I think things will be a lot different.

    I also said 5-10 and for the same reason you mentioned. I think once a "younger" generation is fully in place in DC, it will seem a very natural thing to do and will trickle down to the states.

    Making pot legal will only grow more couch potatoes of the adult kind.

    First off, nice grammar, and 2nd off, if you're trying to imply that supporting marijuana legalization is absurd and that it will never happen, maybe check your facts and you'll learn that 58% of Americans now support legalization. Anyone who wants to tell me what I can and can't put into my own body in "the land of the free" can go **** themselves.

    Nice username.

    All you need is an avatar to go with it.

    You have no idea where I stand on marijuana.

    I do believe it should be decriminalized.

    When other states see the tax revenue, Washington, and Colorado start raking in they are going to find out a way to.make it happen, that tax money will fix their infrastructure, lead to job growth and. a healthier more robust economy...

    The only places i dont see legalizing it are the Southern states because they are too dumb, they can tolerate inbred rednecks carrying around guns everywhere, and moonshine, but if you get caught with a joint it's off to jail..

    Funny how the goons from the toxic right hate BIG GOVERNMENT, but throw folks.in.jail.for.weed, so muchfor freedom.huh??
