Ruben Gallego, the Democratic House assistant minority leader, would like for his Republican colleagues to listen to his pitch for marijuana to be legalized by legislative action rather than wait for a ballot initiative.

In politics, some things are all but inevitable. Most political observers think civil sanction for gay marriages is one of them. I think legalization of marijuana is another.
