Assume that the feds remove marijuana from the drug schedules and completely leave it up to the states to set their own marijuana policy.
Assume that one by one, states will eventually have some form of marijuana legalization, from simply decriminalization (no sales, no growing, but no criminal record or jail for personal pot possession) all the way to full-on farmer’s markets packed with buds and people free to grow their own.
Given those assumptions, which US state would be the very last to enact at least decriminalization of marijuana? And why do you think that? Have you ever lived there or known someone who lived there?
My bet’s on Oklahoma or Utah. Why? Well, I’ve been to Utah and was baptized Mormon, and I’ve spoken at length with Norma Sapp from Oklahoma NORML about the state of cannabis culture there.
