The Illinois Senate bill is the only hope for marijuana to be legalized across the US in the near future
Although there has been a huge momentum behind the Illinois Senate bill to legalize marijuana for the use of medical uses, it is being called a “long shot”. The only way that Americans can see marijuana legalized in their state if one state initiates the process and then the rest will folllow. However this may or may not happen as it seems like ministers are willing to discuss the matter to perhaps only give false hope or to prevent giving any direct answer.
To put it quite simply if the US can ban gambling to the masses, this should give an indication to everyone that they are in no hurry to legalize marijuana. Although marijuana has many supporters for its use there are plenty against it such as polititions and religious groups. If the battle is to be won for its open use amongst chronic medical patients then it certainly looks like a marathon of a war rather than a quick victory.
