Reefer MadnessThere is always a lot of coverage and talk about which state(s) will be the next to legalize marijuana. I have my bet on Oregon, but then again, it’s where I’m from and I’ll be the first to admit that I have a lot of pride in my state. But something that doesn’t get talked about very much is which state(s) will be the last to legalize marijuana.

I saw this question come across social media the other day, and I would have to say Idaho unfortunately. I haven’t been too all the states in America, but the I have been to Idaho many times, and it’s a very scary place to be if you are a marijuana consumer. I hear there are states in the Midwest and South that are bad too, but Idaho would be hard to beat in my opinion.

There is of course the chance that federal prohibition will end, and then states will either be able to decide their own marijuana laws, or they will follow the federal government and make it legal. But I think even then Idaho might still pass a law prohibiting marijuana. It’s the only state Senate I ever heard of that passed a resolution making marijuana reform itself illegal. They somehow made marijuana even more illegal – it’s that crazy there.

What state(s) do you think will be the last to legalize marijuana? Do you live in a state that is particularly harsh towards marijuana, and the citizens and politicians are gone off the reefer madness? I look forward to reading the comments. Hopefully people can see which states need reform the most, and we can all start working extra hard in those areas.
