Attitudes have turned in favor of Marijuana and claim the benefits of marijuana outweigh the negatives. In fact less than 30% of the American population are opposed to legalizing medical marijuana in Utah. Currently possessing an ounce or less can end in a penalty of 6 months in jail. Legislation in Utah however in 2013 was shot down to reform laws regarding marijuana in Utah. Some legislators in this state are more for marijuana and are fighting the Marijuana Policy Project, others agree it will only cause harm and more criminal activity.
