    I think it’s a wasted effort. So far, all the states in the Northeast are and will continue to be a failure when it comes to cannabis reform laws. Good examples of these states are Vermont, which put on a publicity stunt by their politicians that prevented the issue from going to ballot. Mass. where the politicians are rallying against the on going effort and being successful the poll now are at 45% against and 43 % pro legalization. I will not elaborate more on the Mass, issue since we are all aware of the usual prohibitionist arguments. Until, there is a state in the northeast that is successful on the issue of legalization, I will continue to assume it a waste of time.

    It surprised me when Pa. passed any medical legalization. How many recreational lawbreakers are there in the Northeast U.S.A.?
