Californa to Legalize Pot- Not Just for Medical Use

Fourteen states now allow the cultivation and use of marijuana for medical reasons. Besides California, they include Michigan, New Jersey and Colorado. Last month, the District of Columbia Council approved a law to allow people with HIV, glaucoma, cancer and other chronic diseases to buy medical marijuana from a small number of dispensaries in the city. Also last month, a group of about 100 medical-marijuana workers in California voted to join the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. The group includes growers and sellers.
