Maryland is going through what I call a political transformation if not revolution right now. And truly moving towards becoming the Free State that we are proud to call ourselves and living up to those liberal democratic values. By legalizing gambling and same-sex marriage the last few years, as well as cutting taxes. And giving Marylanders more choice and opportunity with how they lives their own lives real freedom of choice.
While Maryland still leads the country in education and being one of the wealthiest if not wealthiest states in the union. At least on a per-capita-income basis as far as what money people have to spend. And marijuana will be next in Maryland and it is not addressed by the State Assembly next year, it will at least be an issues that all Maryland candidates for governor including Attorney General Doug Gansler will have to deal with one way or the other especially if they want Liberals to support them.
Because the War on Drugs is very unpopular right now and Maryland is no exception to that. Young Americans Right and Left are looking for new answers and policies in how we address drugs in this country especially illegal drugs. So much so that both decriminalization and legalization of marijuana are very popular with young Americans. And now more than half of all Americans support that as well.
