Rob Kampia's preferred next steps:

I’m advocating for a pair of legalization initiatives in 2012 in California and Colorado – states where support for ending prohibition is highest. And keeping in mind that marijuana initiatives tend to do better in presidential election years MPP still hopes to place medical-marijuana initiatives on the statewide ballots of Arkansas, Idaho, Missouri, and North Dakota in 2012. (We also remain optimistic about our chances for passing medical marijuana bills in Delaware, Maryland, Illinois, and New York before then.)
