Legalize It?

Under this bill, marijuana would be legalized only in states where the people and their representatives desire it.

 Ron Paul Bill Would End Federal War on Marijuana 

Could this finally shift the power to the states to allow those that choose to legalize (or at lease decriminalize) marijuana?  I’m sure I know what many of you think personally, but does approach – making it an issue of federalism – seem to tilt the scales in favor of the legalization movement?  What types of standards/regulations would we a state need to put into place to make legalization reasonable?

Lastly, what would happen here in Georgia if this bill were to pass?
