Scottsdale, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/29/2014 -- With more U.S. states and cities looking to decriminalize marijuana use, website Ganjatrade.com says it would only be a matter of time before the use of marijuana is legalized in the entire country.
Recently, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel encouraged Illinois lawmakers to reduce the penalties for marijuana possession, saying it is about time that the state introduces moves that would ensure it won’t imprison people needing drug treatment.
Meanwhile, a new poll shows that voters in the District of Columbia are leaning to support a ballot measure legalizing possession as well as sale and home cultivation of marijuana. According to a poll by media outfits NBC 4 and the Washington Post, voters are likely to vote for the legalization of marijuana on November 4.
In Oregon, former U.S. attorney Kris Olson said she supports a ballot measure aiming to legalize recreational marijuana use in the state. Olson is the latest official to support Measure 91 in the state. She said she is supporting the ballot measure because current marijuana laws have failed miserably to reduce the use of the banned substance, and drug cartels are getting the money that should go to the state coffers.
The Medical Marijuana Business Daily has reported that total sales of marijuana could hit $6 billion by 2018. Two states, Colorado and Washington, have legalized recreational use of marijuana, while 18 states have also allowed medical marijuana. Elsewhere, 10 other states have pending measures to legalize medical marijuana.
