The conservative midwest is beginning to look a little bit greener
One state lawmaker wants to make recreational marijuana happen in Indiana. On Thursday, there was a renewed hope and a push for change after the Hoosier neighbors to the north gave the green plant the green light. State Rep. Jim Lucas, a Republican from Seymour, said “Prohibition doesn’t work. Cannabis doesn’t kill people.” On Election Day, Michigan voters legalized recreational marijuana.
Illinois’ new governor-elect, J.B. Pritzker, said he wants to legalize recreational marijuana “nearly right away.” Also, Utah and Missouri just voted to join the growing list of states to allow medical cannabis. The state representative said, “We’re at 32 states that have medical cannabis. Not one state has rescinded it. They’ve all expanded their programs. Many states are making the leap into recreational. The horror stories simply aren’t there.”
