Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said he would support the legalization of medical marijuana after experiencing months of intensive cancer treatment.

CT Senate decriminalizes marijuana possession
Connecticut is one step Closer to Decriminalization
“Final approval of this legislation accepts the reality that the current law does more harm than good – both in the impact it has on people’s lives and the burden it places on police, prosecutors and probation officers of the criminal justice system,” Said Gov. Dannel P. Malloy after the House of Representatives passed a vote (90-57) on Tuesday, making marijuana decriminalized in the state of Connecticut. This comes in line with a number of other states currently fighting this battle on their own level.
The act of decriminlizing will reduce the penatly for possesing less than a half ounce from a potential prision sentence to a $150 fine and up to $1,000 for individulas holding less than 4 ounces. This is a great stepping stone for both the state of Conneticut as well as the medical marijuana community as a whole.
