Indiana is unlikely to legalize marijuana anytime soon to the relief of the state's heroin dealers and meth cookers.

Unless it's changed, Arkansas doesn't either. In Oklahoma you can only buy watered down 3.2% near beer on Sundays.

Unless you mean no liquor by the drink on Sunday either. If so, I wasn't aware there was any state that still banned that.

That's correct, you can not buy alcohol/liquor on Sundays in Indiana! I just moved to NW Indiana from Illinois 6 months ago. OP where do you live now? COL is very good here. No tax on food, low property taxes! We wish we made the move sooner!

I'm in the Bay Area and moved here a few years ago. The COL is ridiculous and there's a different lifestyle out here not the best for a family, more suited for adults. Heroin meth and other crap are here too. Child abductions.

I'm not going to debate the topic of legalization of marijuana or the topic of alcohol. Just want to see if there's a place out there that won't legalize it in the next 20 years.

The US is in a sea change on the war on drugs. Even Indiana significantly reduced sentences for drug dealing a few years ago. Just by seeing the way the wind is blowing, it looks unlikely that any state will still prohibit marijuana in 20 years. Again, I don't use drugs and don't have a stake here--it's just an observation.

I still think Utah might be what you're looking for, though, especially if you want to stay out west. Just be aware of reports that Utah has a significant prescription drug problem.

Marijuana is likely the least of a parent's issues. Alcohol and other hard drugs usually cause more issues than marijuana ever will. I think in the past it was made illegal due to the government wanting to control people. There also seemed to be a belief that entering another state from sober was morally wrong. Governments tried to ban most mind altering substances, but many eventually gave up on alcohol and it became legal in most places, with restrictions.

Also, governments are broke and working to cut costs as best they can. We do have a hard drug problem and those secondary problems that come with that. Marijuana enforcement just takes too much money to deal with and it really does nothing, people still get it, they still smoke it. I think most states will have small amounts of marijuana legal within ten years. Indiana might take a while, but it wouldn't surprise me if they reduced the penalty of say possession of two or three joints to a that of an infraction (like running a stop sign) and not a misdemeanor. Eventually every state will allow some sort of possession.

Yeah, Indiana won't legalize anytime soon, but I can tell you it makes no difference. Kids, if they want it, will buy pot EASILY whether it's illegal or not. My state has no decriminalization or recreational use allowed (but we do have medical) and now we share 2 borders with states that have legalized completely. I can tell you that people I knew growing up used pot regularly and it didn't matter that it was illegal. The point is that moving to a state where it's illegal, simply because it's now legal in your state, is iladvised and irrational.

Yes, and New Hampshire is such a small state in area that no matter where you are in New Hampshire, it's probably not much more than a 15 to 20 minute drive to the nearest state that sells legalized weed. That would be very convenient. As long as the New Hampshire State Police aren't waiting at the state line with an excuse to stop and search people's vehicles as they return to New Hampshire.

15-20 min isn't accurate for the many people living in the interior areas. It's not quite that small. For half of the state, Maine or Massachusetts would be an hour or under drive. The state police will no doubt be willing to find any excuse to pull over a young person with a junky car even though that's just an outdated stereotype.

Just a tongue in cheek reply to the no sale of alcohol on Sunday provision in Indiana. Back in the 60's when I couldn't buy beer between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. in California and wanted another beer, I would go into the all night market, get a six pack of beer (cost about $3 or $4) and put it on the counter. The young clerk informed me that I couldn't buy it. I would put a 10 dollar bill on the counter and tell the clerk, "Then tell your boss I stole it" and walk out with it. Back then there were no bar codes or video surveillance cameras. The kid would ring up the beer and put the change in his pocket. Case closed.
