Utah. That state is practically a theocracy.

Whatever the reddest state is will be the last to legalize.

Oddly, I know or have met many republicans who are pot smokers. So, I wouldn't be so sure it's a republican thing.

And states that need money may end up legalizing it just so they can tax it.

And I wonder if states that have high opioid addiction problems might not legalize pot, if it might help turn things around.

Some might want the tax money, but not want to say they're legalizing pot, so they'll "just" legalize it for medical purposes only. And tax it.

Guess I've lived long enough to realize you just never know. I wouldn't want to guess.

I hadn't thought of that. Good point, Hass!

Legislation and a stiff governor kept NM from legalizing even though 70% of the pop. supports it. Next year we get a new governor, and both main candidates said they would consider it, so if the chambers can manage to write up and pass bills for it that please the next governor, then hopefully NM. Gods know the state's economy could use it. Plus we already have a medical program that is expanding.

As is Oklahoma. The Baptist church is to Oklahoma what the Mormon church is to Utah.

Alabama. Although pedophilia appears to be legal there, so its hit or miss with the moral issues, I guess.

I thought Bill Clinton was from Arkansas, not Alabama?

Utah is a good choice here. Some other fun facts about Utah...it is one of the few States that does not allow a State lottery. It also does not allow you to drive into the State with liquor bought outside of Utah. (Very difficult to enforce) And speaking of liquor, you still can't order a "double" drink, as the max is 2.5 ounces of any combined alcoholic drink. Though you can order a cocktail and a shot, but only if they are different types of alcohol. (That makes no sense!) and you can't order a second drink until you completely finish your first. In restaurants you must order food in order to get a drink. In clubs there is no food requirement. By the time you figure all this out, you probably will need a drink.
