tomcatadam: I'm not sure how the US system works, but doesn't this aren't any salesmen and/or consumers of marijuana vulnerable to arrest and prosecution by the fed?
unlikely: I'm in Colorado, we have it on the ballot here.I voted yes, let's legalize.I doubt it will pass.
AverageAmericanGuy: So how does legalization work in either Colorado or Washington?Can I grow my own? I assume this would be yes.Can I buy at the store? Which stores are carrying it?Is it regulated like a prescription medicine? Is it available OTC?Is it available at gas stations and convenience stores?What happens to Joe Drug Dealer on the corner? Does he stay in business? Is he still the main source for marijuana?I can't imagine there will be any large-scale manufacturers like RJR coming in to start mass producing this stuff. There's still the federal problem there. So how will MJ be made available now?
germ78: Washington looks good. Oregon choked on the smoke of their toke.
glassgnome: Laughing my ass off now that we have legal weed here in the good ol CO. I'm going to put a sale on my vapes in honor of this momentous occasion!
gobstopping: tomcatadam: I'm not sure how the US system works, but doesn't this aren't any salesmen and/or consumers of marijuana vulnerable to arrest and prosecution by the fed?I'm not aware of any drug enforcement responsiblities of the Federal Reserve, which is what "The Fed" often means in American. . .oh fark it. . . .Sure, that's what it means, but the American system is also one of Federalism, and constitutionally, the Federal government shouldn't be able to stop a state from doing that sort of thing. What is likely, is that this will be sent to the Supreme Court, and it's possible prohibition will be found unconstitutional, just as Alchohol prohibition was.Still: I wouldn't consider this sort of thing in the clear enough to go running toward a bong right now, but for any freedom minded individual in the USA, this is actually quite a positive thing.
Hector Remarkable: So, we won?
