7 States That Are Next in Line to Legalize Marijuana
This article is talking about recreational use, but I read in the newspaper recently that Pennsylvania looks like it will be legalizing medical marijuana soon.

Not demeaning your posting JD, but who gives a shit. Everyone has been smoking pot since the sixties and Viet Nam. We have much bigger problems than the whacky weed.
