I think a federal challenge to this would ultimately lead to national legalization. Americans are tired of fighting against a substance as benign as pot.
I think marijuana prohibition enforcement is one of the greatest tragedies of our time. I'm not being over dramatic. Good people, often productive people supporting their families, are in prison, some on very long mandatory minimum sentences, for nothing more than possessing marijuana. Their "crime" is no more significant to society than me possessing a 12 pack of beer.
I value human freedom very highly. To take that away from a person and lock them in a cage because they recreated differently than society feels they should is horrific. Truly horrific. And it's happening right now.
Oh, I forgot the part about marijuana prohibition being overwhelmingly enforced against minorities and poor people. Marijuana use is not particularly high amongst minorities and poor people. Well to do white folks smoke plenty of pot, they just don't get arrested and tried and put in prison for it. If it already wasn't a tragedy now it takes an even more sinister turn.
Yes I was ALREADY moving back to WA State, but this is pretty darn cool.
Wouldn't the Feds pretty much not contest this just like they have looked the other way on the medical mj dipensaries, which are legal by Colorado law but not Federal law?
I just heard that Brian Blechen is transferring to Colorado.
Doritos stocks just jumped 20 points...
Peyton Manning is sitting pretty with the legalization of pot in Colorado, being as he is the new owner of 20+ Papa Johns pizza franchises.
