    AK, HI, CA, NV, MT, ID, AZ and maybe in the Northeast where initiatives are possible.  Basically wherever it's really blue and/or a strong libertarian streak is present.  Could be interesting to see the impact.

    •  A majority of Americans want legalization (1+ / 0-)

      .......put it on the ballot and watch the 18-35 year olds vote in record #'s.   Kind of like what Rove did in 2004 with all the anti gay marriage props.....brought out the key demo's for the GOPers.

      The Romney campaign is a extra-tough Tie Fighter following the Millennium Falcon into an asteroid belt, bouncing from impact to impact in a random manner. - blue aardvark

      by the number of Republicans who believe - and have long believed - that pot should be legal. And taxed. And fully approved for medicinal use, that's a no-brainer in every state of the union.

      Marijuana is the #1 cash crop in Alaska, Alabama, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia, and among the top 3 cash crops in 30 states. Nobody considers Alaska, Alabama, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee or West Virginia to be 'blue' states.

      •  Actually, I wouldn't be shocked. (1+ / 0-)

        All the Republicans I've known that weren't fungelicals (and even some that were) and were under 50 favored decriminalization or full legalization.  However, I do think in the South the fundie churches would overwhelm the youth vote for now, but there could be surprises.  The National Dems still need to "evolve" but that may happen faster now that the dam has cracked.
