Marijuana's Top Lobbyist Told Us Why There Will Be Several Viable Legalization Bills Next Year..

•, Walter Hickey
 Allen St. Pierre is the Executive Director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), the main marijuana use advocacy group in the United States.

NORML is the lobbyist, Political Action Committee, and electoral powerhouse behind medical marijuana laws, decriminalization laws, and now legalization.

Needless to say, he's ecstatic about the results.

"A major corner has been turned in American politics," St. Pierre told Business Insider. "Without being too hyperbolic, for all intents and purposes cannabis prohibition likely began its end last Tuesday night."

He's got a lot of reasons to be confident. Voters in Washington and Colorado voted at around 54% to completely legalize the cultivation, sale, regulation and consumption of marijuana. This is a first — not just in the U.S., but in the world.
