QUick post: It's early and I have to get ready for work, but, as we say, I really wanted to get this out there.
November 7, 2012 -- The marijuana measures in Colorado and Washington set up a showdown with the federal government, which outlaws the drug.Obama AND Marijuana won in Colorado.
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.
Marijuana - and The People - also won Washington State!
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.People who KNOW, know it is way past time to legale and regulate marijuana, to stop arresting 850000 Americans each year for absolutely nothing, ruining their lives, causing them injuries and sometimes getting them shot to death as cops feel it is ENCOURAGED to kill marijuana smokers "to save lives and send the right message to the children".
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.
Americans have been SICK of this shit for 40+ years, millions of them working to get us to the point where 2 states now recognize what's what and have altered their laws to reflect Reality.
Meanwhile, in Massachusetts
BOSTON (AP) – Massachusetts residents have approved a new law legalizing medical marijuana.For a complete rundown: HuffPo
The law eliminates state criminal and civil penalties for the medical use of marijuana by people with cancer, hepatitis C, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, glaucoma, HIV, AIDS, Crohn’s disease, multiple sclerosis and other conditions.
it's slow, it is totally uphil, but, since it is the RIGHT THING TO DO, we continue.
Truth, facts, and reason are on our side, and it is no wonder politicians hate it...all that truth and fact and reason just makes them queasy.
We lead, they follow.
