    this has already come further than I ever though possible.  Of course, I didn't foresee black men being elected president and governor of Massachusetts in my lifetime either.  

    Still, I don't see politicians having the political gonads to step forward and deliver a knock-out blow on this issue - not with so much else going on.  So, I imagine it's gonna be step by step...inch by inch...ganja martyr by ganja martyr...until the dam finally breaks.

      The first full-blown legalization will happen out West via the referendum process - get the right measure on the ballot here in Oregon, run the right campaign, and you can clear 50%.  Needs to get done during the Obama years though - the window is short.
