Smoke em if you got em.

Congrats to that I guess. Is there anything positive that can come of this?

Where exactly will the money from this go?

Wink Some actual hope

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said (in a little publicized or viewed third party debate) that Colorado might well reorder the global debate on marijuana and its legalization. That is to paraphrase, but the gist of it. He may well be right.

Evil forces within this nation, coalesced within the federal government, will surely try and derail the popular will and decision of Colorado. Hopefully the similar marijuana initiatives in Oregon and Washington states will pass as well, and in union of sorts with Colorado present a stronger front towards the inevitable battles to come.

If we might all remember this is but a natural plant, as all others and ourselves but one of God's creations, and in many respects a blessing to mankind.

Tax revenues are a positive thing, reducing access to minors (drug dealers don't care who they sell to. Cannabis retailers will be as strict as alcohol retailers) is as well. Reducing the burden on the justice system in CO is also good; police can now redirect their resources to REAL crimes.

Good on you, people of Colorado.

Good point, but what's your actual experience with drinking booze as a minor? I drank like a fish.

Oh, and about smoking weed pre-21, what's your actual experience with that?

They called me Aqua-lung. I had a gal write in my Senior HS yearbook, something to the effect; "Congrats and good knowing you these 7 years. Must be nice to get good grades, do good in sports, music, etc. and party the way you did. You'll go far in life if you don't die of alcoholism or lung cancer first."

True story. I thought smoking weed was something you got out of your system by the time you hit 26.

I started at 27 lol.

I think it's a great way to relieve stress, which has proven medical benefits. Also there are better methods than smoking.
