As for the States, there's 21 States that it's legal for medical use, 12 more that have pending legislation so that's 33 out of 50... a majority where it's available for those who need it, and it's legal for recreational use in Washington and Colorado with Cali and Oregon looking like they will do the same soon.

The States are quickly passing Europe in terms of giving up the vilification & demonization based on unsustainable economics.
I see the less than informed leaders in the Nordic countries cling to a policy based on ignorance and convictions of monetary convenience.
In reality, they are sucking down a big pharma, timber industry, big oil protein shake. Those are the industries that line politicians pockets to keep it illegal, and we all know those who are mentally deranged enough to crave power and run for office are also money whores. The prospect of it all scares them to death, as it gets into their wallets.
Furthermore, I saw a spark in America over the Bundy ranch that I thought the Prozac and fluoridated water had nullified in the sheepsies.
You can't pick a tipping point where people say enough is enough - it just happens, and it did happen, and will continue.
People stood up to pseudo authority. America is dead? I maintain hijacked is a far better way to put it. Moreover, the so called "leaders" are dead from the neck up, and will stop at nothing to maintain an outdated status quo that benefits only 5%, and they are, of course, part of that 5%.
