    Question: Is smoking weed (marijuana) legal in some States?

    Answer: No. Every State, from Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky to Vermont, including Arizona and every State in between, has enacted various criminal penalties for the possession, use, cultivation, transportation and distribution, of marijuana, including even the smallest of quantities.

    Arizona punishes possession of amounts less than two pounds as a class six felony with fines between $750 and $150,000 and jail or prison time from six months to a year and a half.

    A few States have decriminalized marijuana use and possession in small amounts (N. Carolina and California for example) but even there, its still illegal.

    It is amazing how many people are out there talking about this. How come no one can do anything about it. Good news is, the federal govt. backed off of the med. pot patients this February! Now it is up to the states to make up their own laws. If you don't get involved locally, it won't happen. I love my weed like rednecks love their cigs and beer. It's the whole illegal term that makes it such a "bad" thing. The govt. made a bad decision when they outlawed it so "mexicans" couldn't make any money. Which we stole from them, forced them all away, and now the natives are called mexicans. Yep

    Whoever wrote this page doesn't know their facts. Pot is legal in some states for medical purposes. It is just not legal by the federal government who can over rule the state's decision. So, it's a gray area really for weed.
