Oregon also long ago (1973) decriminalized marijuana. The map on this Wikipedia page is interesting. I find most interesting the states that have either medical marijuana or have decriminalized it, but not both.

Vermont and NH seem small enough. and 'progressive' enough to maybe be next. To me.

I'm not sure you know much about Oregon's legislative process. There are three ways a measure can make it on to the ballot. An initiative gets onto the ballot by signatures of 6-8% (depending on the type of bill) of the voters being collected, and submitted to the legislature. Or a bill can be referred by the legislature for a vote. The third type is for the voters (by petition of 4% of the voters) to place any law already passed by the legislature on the ballot, to be confirmed (or retained if the vote fails).

The current situation with the legalization of marijuana is that the group is readying for an initiative, but if they and the legislature can agree on the language of the bill, the legislature can just propose it, and the signatures won't have to be collected. It's not two opposing entities. Just a matter of hammering out the details. After all, popular opinion is that it failed last time because it was badly written.

Texas. This was a while back when I was a kid...prone to such stupid behavior as driving around with an unsmoked butt in my car.

Also, who said Iowa before Hawaii? Seems an odd prediction there...

Hands down California! That's who I voted for in the poll.

I believe Vancouver, Canada will also have marijuana legalized very soon as-well.

So, there's only one group trying to get it legalized... ?

Or, there's two and they're trying to get the exact same thing passed? Or two groups two separate plans?

Either way, its wasteful and probably a reason it didn't pass in Oregon years ago...

" Then there’s Oregon. When it comes to Oregon, it is not if legalization passes in 2014, but which legalization and how?"

And, notice: I'm not calling you out or personally demeaning you. ("Maybe you don't know much about...")

The easier question is which states will never legalize. Those are the states of the former Confederacy. The South will be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century, or maybe not.

LOL, not likely when you see your senators go on and on about the bible in political ads. The South will never legalize it.
