He believes treating use of the drug as a criminal problem has had a devastating effect among minority communities

President Obama has discussed the marijuana legalisation sweeping the US, saying that it is his “suspicion that you’re gonna see other states looking at this”.

YouTube vlogger Hank Green said during an interview that he felt the current grey area surrounding the legality of the drug in the US is leading to excessive incarcerations particularly among minorities, and that the places which have legalised cannabis are “pretty much doing okay”, and the president was in agreement.

“What you’re seeing now is Colorado, Washington through state referenda, they’re experimenting with legal marijuana,” Obama said.
