The prohibition of Marijuana is now entering its 78th year and interestingly, Colorado’s marijuana law bans the use of Marijuana in the wake to change attitudes since the beginning of last year. Today a large quantity of Americans is supporting the recreational use of Marijuana as compared in 1969 when it was only 12% of them who supported the use of pot.
Four states namely Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington as well as the District of Columbia have the legal right for people to purchase Marijuana. Besides, these states have reduced penalties for the possession and the use of small amounts of the pot plus policies which permit the medical use of Marijuana, prior to the legalization. A review has been carried out by 24/7 Wall St. to identify 11 states which are most likely to legalize the use of Marijuana where the law allows medical use of the drug and ownership of it is not punishable by jail time.
Here is the list of the 11 states:
- New York
- Rhode Island
At some point, the 11 states and a large share of the U.S. states had legalized Marijuana. However, it has been very confusing since it largely depends on where the drug is being used to be fully legal. Thus, the use of Marijuana has by far reduced the penalties involved for those caught with the pot and the state will no longer put on trial or jail those with possession of small amounts of the substance for personal use. But in some cases, it has been noted that even a few grams of Marijuana could be as serious as a traffic breach.
Other states still have harsh penalties when caught with the drug, for example in the state of Nevada those caught with the drug will not be assigned jail time but violators can be huge fines and be arrested and charged with an offense.
