It’s been a blazingly successful year for marijuana advocates. The use of marijuana for medical purposes is now legal in 23 states and D.C., withMaryland, Minnesota, and New York passing their own legislation on such use this year. Maryland, Missouri, and D.C. decriminalized possession of small amounts of pot, and all that happened in the wake of Washington state and Colorado fully implementing their legalization laws this year, too. (Alaska and Oregon also passed legalization laws this year, which won’t go into effect until later.)*
