The legalization of marijuana throughout the United States is a growing reality. More and more, citizens are lobbying their states to legalize pot. So far, Colorado and Washington have OK'd pot for medical and recreational use (albeit with regulations and restrictions) and several other states have legalized medical marijuana.
