    Less than 10 years? I think less than 10 years.

    I read recently that the Lt. Gov. of Cali, Gavin Newsom, the former mayor of SF, said that he is currently working on a plan for legalization in California by 2016. Apparently there will be a couple of groups trying to legalize in 2014, but the Lt. Gov. wants to wait until 2016.

    Uruguay legalized, and is discussing selling weed for $1 a gram.

    It wouldn't shock me if it was more like 5 years.

    If I was a venture capitalist, I'd be investing in marijuana ventures at this time.

    Edibles and concentrates are the future. :grad:

    Seems like the mood of the country has radically changed on this matter in short time.

    I saw a recent poll that showed 58% of Americans are in favor of legalization.

    Oregon will legalize in 2014. Then Cali in 2016. Then Alaska and Hawaii.

    Failed decriminalization bills (2002, 2004)

    On 27 May 2002, the Liberal government of Jean Chrétien introduced a bill that would have decriminalized the possession for personal use of small amounts of cannabis. Possession of 15 grams or less would have been punishable only with a fine, and those possessing between 15 and 30 grams would be either ticketed or arrested for criminal charges at the officer's discretion. Personal cultivation of up to seven plants would have also become a summary offence, while the punishment for cultivation in larger amounts would have been more severe. The bill looked likely to pass into law, but it died when Parliament prorogued. The bill's death was largely due to pressure from the American government's Drug Enforcement Administration, which had threatened to slow down border-crossings along the Canadian-American border so as to control the smuggling of cannabis.

    An identical bill was introduced in November 2004 by the minority Liberal government of Paul Martin, but it too died, when Martin's government was defeated in a confidence vote. After the Conservative victory in the 2006 election, the new government did not resurrect this bill.[19]
