Legalized Marijuana in the USA

Legalized Marijuana in the USA | Geography Education | Scoop.it
Washington state has become the first in America to allow the recreational use of cannabis, setting up a potential showdown with the US federal government.


The states that have legalized recreational marijuana use reflect regional differences in cultural and communal values within the United States.  This is quite a quandry with fascinating ramifications as popular cultural values clash with political tradition.
