wow. this is huge. discuss.
Happy. Im not a smoker but believe in individual freedom. The issue now is how the fed views it.
Also legalized in Colorado.
Huge, huge win for libertarians. To hell with the terroristic DEA and FedZilla...
Any chipping away of the power of the feds is fine by me...
Now that the money will start rolling into these two states, other states will follow with its legalization..
Its a plant people, far far less harmful than alcohol or tobacco.
It's pretty meaningless at this point. They still have federal laws in place. It will have to go through some court challenges as well

It doesnt work that way.
A State making it legal doesnt change the fact that Federal law is still intact.
Federal Law trumps state law. Look for these guys shutting down the places selling it, and arresting the individuals using it-
Oh, and if you purchase a gun after smoking it, look for these guys to be taking you into custody, as you just committed a felony-
Tobacco plant. Cannabis plant. Opium plant. Coca plant.
The whole "it's just a plant" thing is a naive argument. The fact that it is a PLANT does not make a difference, it is the effects you should be arguing.
Don't care, the federal government must be challenged.
The prohibition of marijuana, without a constitutional amendment, is unconstitutional.
Suck it fedzilla.
This is a good start, it's letting the states and feds know that people want it to be legal, they want to be able to smoke it without going to jail. This will hopefully get the ball rolling for other states to legalize it and to repeal the feds laws against it.

Oh the mayhem! A jam concert might break out or something, alert the army!
Congrats to WA and CO, any news of OR yet?
no on oregon
What's the part of his post that comes after the comma?
"Its a plant people, far far less harmful than alcohol or tobacco."
It won't matter if the state and or local governments don't fight to uphold the recognition of its legality. The feds will either be emboldened to or discouraged from flexing its superceding power by the fight in the dog of the state and local representatives. But all the while, the threat of federal crack downs will loom...forever. Additionally, there will be ebbs and flows in how liberal the laws will be.
Pretty much though, for the most part getting caught with small (and not so small) amounts of marijuana by local cops is not a big deal in most locales in California.
And no, I don't partake in any of it.
What about the beer plant?
No, it's not.
I heard there was a run on bongo drums and hackey sacks after it was announced that it would probably pass....
You mean hops and barley? The two plants which constitute beer making?
When they made alcohol illegal, they still had enough respect for the constitution to realize that had to make an amendment to do it.
That care for the constitutional process has long since been destroyed.
Every person that I know that's ever smoked weed ended up using Heroin and raping and killing puppies.
Wait, that's not true. They ended up not doing that stuff.
