    In a rare show of bipartisanship, Republican Sen. Cory Gardner and Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren crafted legislation that would allow states to make the final decision on whether or not pot will be legal. It aims to make marijuana businesses less vulnerable to federal crackdowns. The president Friday told reporters he’s considering the bill and will “probably” support signing it.

    I live in a state where pot has been legal for awhile, my state welcomes the extra tax revenue, in addition, law enforcement officials have expressed relief they can now spend their time and resources pursuing violent crimes, rather than clogging up the courts with pot offences.

    Let us hope "The Donald" can focus on the benefits of this long enough to sign it into law.

    If a State legalizes pot, do people who have been jailed for using / selling pot in that State get out of prison?

    No. Changes to the law are not retroactive.

    Presumably they could be pardoned as have "offenders" of laws against homosexuality.
