USA: Smoke It Up, Marijuana May Soon Be Legal In Four U.S. States smartabouthealth | 12/28/2009 | Boston (SmartAboutHealth) - The push to make marijuana legal continues as four U.S. states are currently pursuing the legalization of marijuana. The hope from these states is that marijuana will become fully regulated, as well as completely legal. The four states pushing to legalize marijuana include Massachusetts, California, New Hampshire, and the state of Washington. There are four bills currently being tossed around, one for each state, with the end result being regulation and legalization of marijuana. According to federal law, marijuana is an illegal substance, but that could be coming to an end if this trend continues. More and more states in the U.S. are throwing around the idea of trying to make marijuana legal, or at least regulating it for use in small amounts and in medical cases. We will know much more in regards to how this process is going once January legislative sessions begin.
