U.S. drug policy continuing to evolve.
U.S. drug policy continuing to evolve.

An important issue on the ballot for just a few states but the implications for drug policy across the United States in the future are tremendous.  The article points out the effects on the drug cartels at this time are not as big as they may seem but it is a step in the right direction to stem the violence in Latin America in the long run.  It is also an incremental move in the U.S. toward the seemingly inevitable legalization of marijuana nationwide.  As the public sees the effect on these states is not as bad as perceived and, in fact, is in many ways positive (similar to the medicinal use of pot), more legalization of the drug will occur and quite a few problems will be alleviated in America, such as the incarceration of non-violent criminals and the massive cost that has on communities and the prison system.  As time goes on, many of the myths surrounding marijuana use will be put to rest for good and we will be able to focus on more important issues in the area of drug policy.
