This week's cover: The national effort to legalize marijuana
"Legalize it!" used to be the stuff of Bob Marley songs and dorm room bull sessions, but increasingly, efforts to decriminalize marijuana are gaining traction across the country. At least 14 states have legalized pot in one form or another, with New Jersey jumping on the bandwagon just this week.
We believe medical marijuana will be in more than half the states in two years...and maybe 47 states in the next 10 years," says attorney Sean T. McAllister, who led a successful crusade last fall to get pot legalized.
So whether you inhale or not, the pro-marijuana movement can no longer be ignored. And if you like the story? Puff, puff, pass it to a friend.
