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 far, the answer is "not much." That's part of what makes this whole thing so intriguing. I honestly don't care that much about which of Colorado or Washington (or technically Oregon) passes one of these, but I hope one of them does at least. The Feds just keep ignoring the issue, and having it pass outright in one state would, at a minimum, force them to acknowledge that there are a ton of people out there these days that think it's time for prohibition to end.

The debate itself would be healthy even if the individual laws end up being largely symbolic.

the only worry I have is. Will it get taxed so heavy that it is still a better option to buy off the street? Its not cheap now if you want good pot. I wont smoke cheap shitty Mexican grass. Its Hydroponic or nothing for me. I dnt drink or do any other drugs
I have no idea on that one. My personal take would be that I'd rather people pay a little extra to get it legally if that's what it takes, but who knows - legalization would likely increase competition which would then potentially drive down costs as well.

You'd think, though I have no idea what percentage of their profits come from weed vs. harder drugs. It could be a drop in the bucket for all I know.

I could be wrong, but I don't think a lot of pot comes from South America. It might have an impact on the drug gangs of Mexico though.

It costs more to arrest and jail them than the fines bring in.

I read an article this is actually hurting Obama in Colorado. Many of the pro-pot people are voting for Johnson instead.

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.
