Yeah, but think about all of "those people" who will be smoking marijuanas and committing all sorts of rapes and bringing crime and whatnot.  Think of the children.  Jesus.

On a serious note, maybe shouldn't-have-been-pardoned Sheriff Arpaio might mellow the fark out and stop being such a racist POS.

Opposition among Republican lawmakers to legalizing the drug has been strong

Party of Freedom and Personal Responsibility strikes again.

Someone moves there, buys a house, smokes a marijuana, then dies.  House is now on the market again and can be resold to another addict for the cycle to continue.  Of course that's good for the real estate market.

It goes exactly the same way here in Colorado.  We're running out of cemetery plots.

It greatly improve the value of th land I'd be growing it on here in Oklahoma.

Rural area near me is about $10k an acre and the suburban area I live is about $150k an acre. Midtown Tulsa is probably $500k an acre.

Just what we need.  Get a great big ol' hippy weedhead commune living next to Joe Arpaio and every time he complains about the smell, they say 'pardon me'.

Denver has several examples of neighborhoods that were downright shiat 10 years ago (South Broadway for example), that filled up with marijuana dispensaries over the last few years. Then came the additional eateries, and some bars. Next thing you know they are building up multi-unit housing and reworking the street layout. WHAM, suddenly it's a great neighborhood.  Then we have a couple of small metro area cities that don't allow dispensaries (*cough* Sheridan) that have retained their post-apocalypse appearance and property values.

Your choice fundies

My biggest fear is that like the lottery, this is going to be sold as a boon for education funding and then all the sudden it won't be anymore because of well, reasons.

Reasons being, rather than supplementing existing levels of education, legislators use it to REPLACE public education funding and children end up paying for someone's scratch-off or bong hit fetish.

The value of the house next to the Funyun plant will increase 300%.

I was there 2 weeks ago, and driving around on streets that, back in 2009, were full of houses covered in lead paint and considered a blight.   I remember one of my internet friends owning a house there because it was all she could afford.  (Area around Voodoo Donuts)
