WASHINGTON, D.C. – Looks like the nation’s is going to pot heads.
Ever since Colorado legalized the recreational use of marijuana and began raking in the fruits of that labor, it seems many Americans are opening their glassy, red eyes to the benefits of going green.
A Wall Street Journal poll shows more and more states are considering relaxing their marijuana laws.
As 55% of Americans say they favor laws allowing adults to buy small quantities of the sticky-icky from state licensed businesses.
After a vote on medical marijuana in November, Florida could be the first state in the south to legalize the use of pot for health-related reasons.

The garden state, however could get a little greener if State Senator Nicholas Scutari gets his way.

While new jersey legalized pot for medicinal use in 2010, weed for fun-sies won’t be an easy sell (at least, in the legislature.)
Governor Chris Christie has said on multiple occasions he’s against legalizing the drug. Clearly, he struggles with the munchies without smoking.
Colorado’s had such monetary success, however, we’re surprised it’s taken this long for more states to catch on. Money doesn’t grow on trees; but it seems the marijuana industry has come pretty damn close.
