I hope this includes my state because we need this. We need the tax money and we need people to get better.

Currently, it's legal to use recreational marijuana only in four states and in the District of Columbia. Colorado and Washington state voted to OK it in 2012. Alaska and Oregon voters approved it in 2014. Medical marijuana is legal in half of US states and is on state ballots this year in Montana, Florida and North Dakota. It will be on the ballot in Arkansas with two initiatives, but the results won't count for one of them, after the state Supreme Court struck the issue in October, due to invalid signatures.

For the states where recreational use is legal, it seems to have been a boost to the economy. The marijuana industry created more than 18,000 full-time jobs last year and generated $2.39 billion in economic activity in Colorado, according to an analysis from the Marijuana Policy Group.

This is great news. It's about time they stop arresting people for a Plant! This has been a long time coming, ever since Nixons war on drugs. I just wish my country (NZ) would get with the Times!

I cannot believe that there are few people around the country still beating this dead horse. Please can the FEDS make this legal already? Waiting on state by state while people still go to jail is crazy.

Perhaps more importantly, four states voted to pass new laws that make marijuana use equivalent to liquor consumption.

It is amazing after all these years Snoop Dogg is still the face of smoking in America. He is our Bob Marley.

"I'm mostly concerned by the people around Donald Trump," said Executive Director of the Drug Policy Alliance Ethan Nadelmann — the man considered the major powerhouse behind marijuana legalization in the country.
