How to use legalize in a sentence?

  1. Chris Walsh:

    It feels like [ legalization ] has to happen soon, but it might not happen how people think. You get a bill passed to allow banks to clearly serve this industry without a whole bunch of restrictions, and that could be pseudo-legalization, so, the actual move by the federal government to' legalize' marijuana or let states decide might not come for years ; but that reality might play out anyway with some other type of legislation.

  2. Stanton Glantz:

    In October, Canada became the first major economic country to legalize recreational marijuana, which will undoubtedly be a bellwether for the U.S. as it continues to debate policy issues surrounding pot. And although cigarette smoking might be on the decline, Dr. King notes the tobacco industry has heavily diversified its portfolio of products and still remains one of the most profitable industries globally. So while it might be awhile beforeconvenient stores are sellingpacks of joints, similar to a pack of cigarettes its cleartobacco is positioningitself for an impendingshift towards cannabis. Kids started with tobacco and then graduated to marijuana, now its the other way around. Kids start with marijuana and they graduate to tobacco.

  3. Victoria Castro:

    We need to go back and expunge the records of people who were imprisoned because of using marijuana. And this is important, this part is important, in part, because there are a lot of people, and folks in this audience probably know some of them who have served jail time, right, and disproportionately it's impacted communities of color and poor neighborhoods of people who have been imprisoned because of marijuana use. So it's not enough just to say we want to legalize it. We actually want to go back and expunge these records.

  4. Steve Kubby:

    I’m on the record totally opposing this law [California Proposition 64] that does not legalize marijuana.

  5. Justin Trudeau:

    It's been too easy for our kids to get marijuana - and for criminals to reap the profits. Today, we change that. Our plan to legalize & regulate marijuana just passed the Senate.
