Ind. Gov't. - "Indiana yet to get high on idea of legalized marijuana "

That is the headline to Mauureen Hayden's story this weekend in the Kokomo Tribune. The long story begins:

State legislatures across the nation seem to be increasingly high on the idea of legalizing marijuana for recreational or medicinal use.

Lawmakers in eight states have cleared the way for November ballot initiatives to allow voters to weigh in on a variety of pot initiatives — potentially making 2016 the most expansive year for marijuana yet.

Indiana isn’t among them — and likely won’t follow that path anytime soon.

“Too many legislators are still afraid of it,” said state Sen. Karen Tallian, the Democratic legislator/grandmother/attorney who has tried for years to get her fellow lawmakers to hear her pot-related bills.
