In case you haven't noticed, we don't live in the most progressive state, it won't happen soon. But to hell with our simple desire to get stoned just because it is our god-given right, cancer patients are being denied medicine that not only eases chemos side effects, but agressively attacks tumors. Epileptic children for whom cannabis is the ONLY treatment that works. This is the real injustice. Us grown ass people who just want to relax and have a laugh need to put our selfish indulgences aside in order to push for medical cannabis in our state.

It will be a bitter battle because the state and law enforcement currently profits from the drug trade status quo. Colorado is a step in the right direction. Medical status is too restrictive in most states and people should have the right to grow their own just as they would any garden vegetable. The drug war has not only been a giant expensive failure but also an attack on our constitutional rights.
Tennessee will eventually become a highly restrictive medical state, but I think it will be one of the last to completely give up the cash cow it has ultimately become.

Tennessee is estimated to lose 8% of it's population to immigration to legal states. Do you think this is going to be a unproductive percentage of our population? No. It will be some our best, brightest, and hard working citizens. West Tennessee with continue its downward spiral into the metro Memphis crack zone. I, for one, will be part of this exodus.

Tennessee is the second largest cannabis growing state, behind California. Consistently our state has produced about $4,000,000,000 worth of bud a year. I bet these numbers go WAY down in 2014.
Four billion dollars. 4 thousand million. How many ways can I say it? Do our officials not think these profits were put back into the local economy?
These dollars will be spent in Colorado and Washington state this year.
It will not take long for legislaters to pick profit over public opinion.

Invest in these:
Son-agro, makes grow lamps.
Hydroponics hardware and suppiles.
Land in rural Colorado and Washington state.
Geologists who know where to find required mineral deposits.
Fast food and edibles in Denver. Don't be to proud to deliver for $25/hr.
Blown glassware.
Butane.
Of course you know, in 6 to 8 months, cannabis will be much cheaper than todays already cheap $200 an oz in Denver. Every adult can cultivate 3 flowering and 3 mother plants. That is enough for the heaviest smoker. It will be given away and traded. The profit for street sales is gone in Denver. That shady dude just got deleted from everyones phone.
And if we were told right, all the terrorist groups funding their operations with drug money just went bankrupt.

Gallup has been polling on the subject of Marijuana legalization since 1970. Fast-foward to 2013 to the latest Gallup poll. This poll shows a record 58% in favor of legalization for (get this) "Recreational" use. This poll, also, shows major shifts in all demographic and age groups.

Sounds like the tide is shifting.

Different polls give varying results, but I have not seen a single poll by anyone recently showing a majority of respondants against legalization. The tide is shifting, for sure.
My earlier post was supposed to say a point 8 percent loss, not 8 percent. That pesky decimal.

It's the lates Gallup poll released in late November 2013. It's on their website

I don't think that the problem is canibis itself, but rather the Height/Ashbury Counter-culture stigma attatched to it. In other words, it has more to do with the P.R. since "Refer Madness" first premiered in theatres nation wide. Couple all that LSD nuttiness and Charles Manson and you have a major PR problem to overcome.

If NORML, LEAP and MPP would have rally participants dress and behave professionally, then the movement might start getting some legs.

No matter what poll you look at, when compared to where the polls were two decades ago, then the idea has gained a lot of ground.

Speaking of ground, NORML is reporting that politicians at both state and national levels have been increasingly in consultation with NORML. Where as just eight years ago, no politician wouldn't be caught near the NORML lobby.

While illegal, the attn general issued a statement last year to the effect of, as long as these 8 guidelines are followed, we will not interfere. Allso, legislation is going before the house to repeal all restrictions.
It is only a matter of time.

That's what amazes me about these "Limited Government" moral conservatives. They want the government out of their lives. However when it comes to true freedom and the people deciding what kind of government they shall be governed by, they gag consistently on this one gnat. A gnat that has cost over 14 trillion dollars and has led to absolute failure.

Imagine what we could do with 14 trillion dollars: like cut the national debt by 60%.

There is a form of epilepsy called Dravets syndrome. Children aflicted have had no drug that has been effective. Except for cannabis. These children were former vegetables, in a continuous state of seizure. These children are beginning to lead normal lives, reason enough to end this madness.
On a more relevant note for most of you, it also cures cancer. Seriously. Not 100%, but what does. And it makes dying less painful for those who are terminal.
I'm just getting started.

Did not ever think I would see it legal in any state but hope to live long enough to see it legal in TN.

I agree with you. I have even read that Diabetics get relief from nerve damage pain by smoking it.
