Below is an updated map on the current state of marijuana legalization in America. The District of Columbia recently voted to decriminalize marijuana and Maryland will follow with decriminalization in October 2014. Please note that this map is subject to change as states continue to address marijuana legalization.

    Please make one correction to your map. There is no potential initiative in Ohio in 2014. The Ohio Rights Group began circulating an initiative with the hope of getting medical marijuana on the 2014 ballot. Despite the strenuous efforts of hundreds of hard-working volunteers, the initiative received no major funding. Signatures gathered by volunteers fell far short of meeting a July 5th deadline. These efforts were not wasted; the signatures gathered are still good. The ORG is determined to complete the signature gathering and has almost a year to collect enough signatures for the 2015 ballot. For information see www://ohiorights.org.

    To those in government who passes unjust laws that persecute Cannabis users:

    HYPOCRITES!!!! You pervert justice in order to exalt yourselves while oppressing those who elected you.

    God gave us Cannabis which is a green herb a seed bearing plant and yet you in government who pass these unjust laws which are based on racism for you in government are hypocrites who will pervert justice in order for you to make money and you will even pervert justice through acts of murder and lies so you would not be held accountable yourselves when you are caught using Cannabis yet you who pervert justice are not punished nor held accountable for breaking your own laws.

    This is not right! It’s a perversion of justice and woe unto you that pass unrighteous decrees.

    Woe unto you in government for you have trodden upon the widow, the poor and the orphan and God shall rise to their defense.

    Woe unto you that laughs now! for you shall mourn and weep.

    Cannabis is a seed bearing plant a green herb that God created.

    It is written:

    29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

    30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.

    Genesis
    chapter 1
    verse 29 through verse 30
