Amendment 64

First of all.





This is incredible, three states have decided by popular vote to end the prohibition of Marijuana for adults. I live in Boulder and I must say the energy here is phenomenal. I never imagined this actually passing, certainly not in multiple states. What's OT's take on this?

I believe the bigger picture is a resurgence in states' rights as a result of a chain reaction. Smoking weed legally is great and all, but what if states started handling social issues as their voters see fit? Then maybe, just mayyybe, the federal government could get something accomplished.

I hope so, but we haven't had a lot of fun here in CA so far when it comes to feds leaving the dispensaries alone.

HUGE step in the right direction. Screw the feds, let the states decide what's good for them.

this is HUGE step...im in alabama right now hating every minute of it.
i think as people start to realize that it really hasnt fvcked anything up for CO or WA (and the spike in population, and the money it generates), they will open their minds up and more states will start to adopt medicinal laws and then eventually end the prohibition

I've been researching this crap for a long time. It seems the Feds don't want to reverse their stance on weed but they think that the states legalizing it will cause a civil war about states rights. WTF.

Good on Colorado! The government should not have a say in what I put in my body if it has no impact on others.

Colorado and Washington... primed for pot tourism?

This could become as big as micro brews. Stores that sell a variety of artisan grown blends. I can see this being a tourism draw and possibly a tax windfall for the states. It will probably be adopted by more states in as little as 8 years.

Civil war over weed? Hahah do you think a bunch of pissed off stoners are really going to get off their couches away from their gravity bongs and Cheetos and fight?

I am all for legalization, but amendment 64 is far from it. Now cops can give you a road side blood test...and if it comes back positive for THC you are getting a DUI, which will cost you 10k in fees etc. And as we all know THC can stay in your blood stream for 30days or more.....people are gonna get screwed. Just another way for the state to make money.

It is great that the cops will leave people alone for under 1 ounce though.

Still illegal in federal law.

Jobs can still deny hire and fire you.

Enjoy being jobless.

WA passed their pot initiative by a fairly wide margin, but I wouldn't be surprised if this is delayed or overturned before it goes into law.
