Holy shit! For many years we have been waiting for the moment and nothing happens, then you turn your head and all of a sudden two states in the US legalize cannabis! WTF?!? Of course in some states it is already prohibited to smoke marijuana for medicinal use but now in both Colorado and Washington voters have managed to get the majority to vote for legalization. I would say that after more than 75 years of bullshit around this wonderful plant, this is a historical moment …. I am speechless. Growing and selling will be regulated, people over 21 will be able to buy up to one ounce of weed at a shop and you will allowed to grow up to 6 plants for personal use... Wait a minute…. fuck me sideways and call me Nancy… one ounce?? That is about 28 grams! While here in Amsterdam we are allowed to buy only up to 5 grams! That is if this new weed-pass system is not going to go in effect in Amsterdam.
As 50% of all drug arrests in the US are for possession of marijuana this might mean that the prisons in the states o Colorado and Washington might be empty soon as well. So of course a large group of opponents of the new law are protesting, saying that drug tourism will take over and children will be smoking pot in no time. But public support of marijuana has never been as big as in the last year as many Liberals, Democrats, Moderates, Independents, doctors, lawyers, famous people, politicians and of course you and me have expressed their support on legalization.
So wow, just wow… it seems things might actually go the right way… Or am I just dreaming all of this and will the federal government, with for the next 4 years apparently again Obama, manage to fuck shit up again?
