The Marijuana Legalization Watch Thread

Take this poll with a grain of salt because drugs always seem to under-perform their polling, but PPP says amendment 64 is winning in CO, 52-44.

This amendment would outright legalize and regulate the cultivation, manufacture, sale, and recreational use of marijuana. That would set the state up for a showdown with the feds which the feds will obviously win, but it could drive the issue further.

So what's the story with Colorado? It's legally medically? Have the feds been raiding dispensaries out there? I read they were doing so in California.
Colorado probably has the most sophisticated system of dispensaries in the country at this point. It's HIGHLY regulated and is making the state a shit ton of money already. There have been a handful of raids I believe, but not typically against places that are clearly in compliance with state law. At least I don't think so.

I'm not sure if it's available online, but the 60 Minutes piece mentioned earlier was extremely interesting. It gives you a real feel for what it's like here.

If that's sarcasm, just because they're not violent doesn't mean they're not powerful.

Honestly, I wish the Colorado version was restricted to residents, but it's not. I'm a bit concerned about the pot tourism side of things, but it is what it is. So...if this passes (and the feds don't kill it somehow), you can start planning your next vacation.

Are you worried Colorado's going to run short of Doritos and Moose Tracks ice cream?

Yeah, it's almost guaranteed to pass in Washington unless the polls are WAY off. Colorado, it's likely, but close.

I'm not entirely sure why Colorado is getting so much more attention, honestly. Maybe because we've got a system already in place that makes it pretty easy to ramp this up quickly?

I'm giddy over this. I'll be driving over the day this takes effect.

It's not like you can bring it back to Kansas. Get caught transporting it across state lines, and you're still ****ed.
