Colorado, Washington legalize marijuana

November 6, 2012 (SEATTLE) -- Washington and Colorado have becomes the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana.

The marijuana measures in Colorado and Washington set up a showdown with the federal government, which outlaws the drug.

Colorado's Amendment 64 will allow adults over 21 to possess up to an ounce of marijuana, though using the drug publicly would still be banned. The amendment would also allow people to grow up to six marijuana plants in a private, secure area.

Washington's measure establishes a system of state-licensed marijuana growers, processors and retail stores, where adults can buy up to an ounce. It also establishes a standard blood test limit for driving under the influence.

The Washington measure was notable for its sponsors and supporters, who ranged from public health experts and wealthy high-tech executives to two of the Justice Department's top former officials in Seattle, U.S. Attorneys John McKay and Kate Pflaumer.

"Marijuana policy reform remains an issue where the people lead and the politicians follow," said Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance, which opposes the co-called "war on drugs." ''But Washington State shows that many politicians are beginning to catch up."

Estimates have showed pot taxes could bring in hundreds of millions of dollars a year, but the sales won't start until state officials make rules to govern the legal weed industry.

In Massachusetts, voters approved a measure to allow marijuana use for medical reasons, joining 17 other states. Arkansas voters were deciding on a similar measure that would make it the first Southern state in that group.

Too bad the federal government doesn't give a shit if it's legal in your state or not.

Yeah on one hand this is awesome, and on the other, the DEA could be all over yo ass.

They'd surely go after the big fish (pounds and pounds of weed out the ass) though first instead of the regular people just going along with the law as stated. Well, you'd hope.

Still a victory in the right direction!

Re: Colorado, Washington legalize marijuana

Hopefully the feds don't declare war on these states, but seeing how Obama has fucked over medicinal marijuana users I don't hold out much hope for this. The war on drugs will never end, its too big of a business. Besides, if marijuana were ever truly legalized the resulting hemp industry would destroy a lot of existing corporations, or force them to completely restructure. Its easy to grow, has a million and one uses, and is super cheap, thats not good for making money (Damn you William Randolph Hearst!).
Granted I'm cynical by nature, I'll be interested to see what happens with this one.

Lots of good (full length) videos that dont suck (including wrestling) @ www.dailymotion.com/AntiFlag607, check it out.

Re: Colorado, Washington legalize marijuana

This is legalizing for non medicinal purposes too right? Not sure how that's gonna fly with the feds. Even pot shops that sell it for medicinal purposes here in California get shut down from time to time.

Re: Colorado, Washington legalize marijuana

That's great. I can't wait to see how this plays out federally. Living where I do in such a secluded area I don't have to worry about it but it's nice that those people that wanna smoke it might be able to do so fairly easily now in those states. Good luck on driving while high though.

So? Why would you anyway? You can't smoke cigarettes in most public places and cigs don't give contact highs. So yeah, I've got no problem with that.
