The Most Likely States to Legalize Marijuana In 2018

After four of five statewide marijuana legalization ballot initiatives were approved by voters in 2016, no additional states ended cannabis prohibition in 2017 (though New Hampshire did decriminalize possession of the drug and West Virginia allowed its medical use). Now, a number of states are poised to legalize marijuana and approve other far-reaching cannabis measures in 2018. ... Here's a look at the states that are most likely to enact marijuana reforms in 2018: Vermont, New Jersey, Michigan, Oklahoma, Utah, Missouri and Virginia.

Utah would be the yugest surprise of those listed in the article. They barely have fully legalized alcohol in Utah.

Wow. I was reading the local paper today and found out you still get 60-120 days of the Sheriff's hospitality for getting popped with under 2oz of weed. I figured they'd at least get probation at this point in time. Several of my fellow citizens were entered into the rolls of our local for-profit private prison facility under these arrangements. Gotta keep Satan's herb from infecting the hearts and minds of the community. For a nominal fee, of course.

But, on the bright side, I did hear on the local news tonight that Texas is, ahem, mulling-over the idea of repealing the last two Blue Laws on the books: Allowing liquor to be sold on Sundays and permitting car dealerships to be open.

It's all about the $$ and tourism in Utah, they feel that they are losing tourists to Colorado because of the legal weed and want to cash in.

"Oklahoma"

Wow, Okies from Muskogee in what we always called Far North Texas with legal weed. Who'd a thunk it?

Maryland has too many African Americans. UNICOR needs bodies and its a cash cow.

I wonder if they'll take the chaw out of their mouth before sparking up?

Unlikely. Nicotine is as addictive as heroin.

Hey in Wisconsin they legalized the use of CBD oil. Unfortunately they didn't legalize manufacturing, possessing, buying, selling, or transporting it. So If you don't mind committing 5 felonies first you can USE it
