With the political world racing toward the coming 2016 presidential election, each presidential candidate is expressing their own view on marijuana legalization.

When asked if Hillary Clinton was ready to take a position on whether the federal government should legalize cannabis, she responded that she still believes more research and observation is needed to make an informed decision.

By observing the states that are currently pursuing recreational marijuana, Clinton believes that we have the ability to learn even more than what we know today.

Clinton does strongly believe, however, that we need to stop imprisoning people who use marijuana and would like to see the states, cities and federal government work on addressing this issue immediately.

As the elections continue to near, we will see more and more views on medicinal and recreational marijuana from each presidential candidate.
