They won't use the courts. They'll use the IRS.

Why can't this country do anything that makes sense? Legalizing pot and the fair tax are two examples of what I mean.

It won't matter, the dam has broken. Once states see how they put those tax revenues to use, you're going to have the staunchest conservatives lobbying for similar measures in their states.

Don't be so sure about that.

California, in some jurisdictions, has literally taxed the dispensaries out of existence, licking the gift horse in the mouth.

I believe it's in the Bay area that they allowed all of these business to get started and established and then retroactively applied new tax code, resulting in a several hundred percent increase in taxes overnight. Several dispensaries just shut their doors.

You do realize that there are currently over 3x as many marijuana stores in Denver as there are McDonalds and Starbucks combined, right? This has been in place since 2009, and although the Feds certainly haven't made it easy on us, they realize it would be political suicide in Colorado to come in a try to shut it down.

This actually gives me a slight bit of hope for our country, as it appears that--at least in 2 states--more people believe in the intelligence of ending cannabis prohibition than do still believe the brainwashing propaganda that they've been fed the last 75 years.

Good job Colorado! Good job Washington! Good job America! Chalk one up for individual freedom and liberty!

It's still illegal under federal law. That could be just a minor inconvenience to some?
