The USA continues to lead the way with cannabis legalization regulation changes.

  • Washington DC moved closer to decriminalizing cannabis on Wednesday 15th Jan 2014 when the city council approved a measure that would downgrade  cannabis use to the same legal penalty as a parking ticket.  This would mean, in reality, a more-or-less legal situation.  The resolution was passed unanimously by the city council's public safety committee, the bill reduces penalties for possessing less than an ounce (28 grams) of marijuana to a fine as little as $25.  More info is here http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-usa-marijuana-districtofcolumbia-20140115,0,1869595.story
  • Florida.  With 1.1 million people signing the petition for medical marijuana, it is now certain that the use of medical cannabis will be put to the ballot for a state-wide vote during 2014.  For Florida campaigners this means that the real battle has begun.  High-profile campains will start to educate the voters about the numerous medical applications of cannabis.  Opinion polls suggest that a public ballot in Florida will be passed.  More info is here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jag-davies/florida-marijuana_b_4603426.html
 

Soon the USA will have over half its states with legal cannabis.
