2. States that allow initiatives on their ballots

are states where the people in this nation have been allowed to change shitty law regarding cannabis.

State legislatures haven't been all that quick to join the 21st century - it's only when they have been FORCED to RECOGNIZE the will of the people via ballot measures that change has happened.

Even then legislators have tried to screw their own constituents. Arizona had to vote on medical marijuana more than once and had to also vote to prohibit their legislators from undoing what they had done.

Politicians, on the whole, are not that innovative or interesting, imo. They uphold the status quo until they are forced to join the new status quo.

anyone who thinks politicians are leaders on just about any issue have not been paying attention.
