handing out tickets, instead of jail time, often costing less than a stop sign offense. They are Alaska, California,
Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Oregon.

In 2013, Colorado & Washington became the first states in the US to LEGALIZE RECREATIONAL CANNABIS.
The information below was true in 2011, how much head-way have we made?
In Romania, medical cannabis use is legal. In 2011, medical cannabis was available in Canada, China, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, the United States of America and 12 patients in Finland. Personal use was legal in Peru. Croatia, France and Switzerland are quickly moving forward and may legalize personal consumption soon. In Argentina and Spain it is not illegal, therefore assumed legal. There is no penalty in Uruguay and seventeen other countries who have chosen to decriminalize or have not opted to prosecute personal cannabis users. Regardless of this progress there are countries that may never understand its medical value. In Bulgaria personal use will get you 1-6 years in prison.
In Malaysian, possession of seven ounces (200 Grams) could bring the DEATH PENALTY.
Marijuana has ever killed or harmed anyone. The Hemp plant is very old. Cannabis Sativa is one of many species of Hemp that has been in continual use for about 10,000 years, with medical evidence dating back to 2,737 BC. An essential building block used around the world, responsible for sails and ropes used to sail the seven seas, advance trade, and the quality of life. In 1937, five years after prohibition ended, the Marihuana Tax Act was implemented. Why the change in attitude? History points to US politics and big money with timber interests; hemp is a renewable resource.
Voting in U.S. cities across America have modified local ordinances and criminal justice practices to decriminalize recreational cannabis. In California’s Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco, the cities law enforcement are required to place recreational cannabis consumption as their lowest priority. Similar are Breckenridge in Colorado; Amherst in Massachusetts; Madison and Milwaukee in Wisconsin; Urbana and Carbondale in Illinois; Colombia in Missouri; and more

With the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, California voters legalized and approved medical cannabis by 56%, also known as Proposition 215 and Senate Bill 420. Fifteen years later in 2011, the Federal government shutdown the 1st Legal California Dispensary and Marin County went from six to zero brick and mortar dispensaries by the spring of 2014. As recreational cannabis becomes legal across the U.S. the House of Representatives is trying to help make significant changes in how the Federal Government deals with those who are legally following state rules and guidelines. Today things are getting better for dispensaries but the Feds are now concentrating on busting the growers, and before that their target were the landlords; threatening them with 40 years in federal prison and forfeiture of their property. Even though we believe that cannabis should be legal for anyone over 18, the failure of Prop 19, in 2010, even though the federal governmanet retaliated against one of the major contributors and Oaksterdam University, it may have been a blessing in some ways as legalizing personal use in California at that time would have brought in more feds and caused a setback to the medical community. Patience, soon we will reach the TIPPING POINT when the Federal government must honor the choices made by Unites States citizens.
