July 19, 2011 Medical marijuana could be legalized in more than half of U.S. states by 2014- Denver News
Would the approval of medical marijuana by more than half of U.S. states create momentum for the rescheduling of cannabis on a federal level and perhaps decriminalization or legalization regarding recreational use? Possibly, Fox argues.
“Politicians understand a clear legal majority,” he says. “And in the Senate, there would be majority representation of constituencies that have legal medical marijuana and supported it. And that would definitely be of assistance for getting laws passed on a federal level once it got to the Senate.”
