Colorado Measure Legalizing Marijuana Passes

Colorado -- An amendment that would make it legal in Colorado for individuals to possess and for businesses to sell marijuana for recreational use has passed. The Denver Post made the call at approximately 9:15 p.m.Amendment 64 led with 52.7 percent voting yes and 47.3 percent voting no, with 1,507,746 votes or more than 50 percent of active voters counted, according to the Colorado Secretary of State's office. The office said 25 counties had reported.
The early results prompted cheers throughout Casselman's, a downtown bar Mason Tvert, co-director of Yes on 64, said the crowd was cautiously optimistic."We're not going to jump to any conclusions just yet," he said. "But we believe Colorado voters have decided to take a more sensible approach to how we deal with marijuana in the state."If the amendment passes, Colorado could become the first state to legalize recreational use of the drug, possibly clearing the way for creation of a marijuana industry. There are similar measures before voters in Washington and Oregon.The ballot measure to amend the state constitution has fostered a national discussion about marijuana policy. Supporters hope approval would place pressure on the federal government to end marijuana prohibition everywhere. But critics say it could make Colorado a destination for drug tourists and prompt a federal crackdown.SnippedComplete Article: Westnyc Source: Denver Post (CO)Author: Sadie Gurman, The Denver PostPublished: November 6, 2012Copyright: 2012 The Denver Post Website: openforum denverpost.comCannabisNews  -- Cannabis Archives

Yes, this is historic!
For the first time in 75 years, since they illegally backhandedly made cannabis possession a crime with the Marijuana Tax Act, cannabis is legal for adults in two states. This is the beginning of what will be an extremely quick (in comparison to the last 75 years) but bloody battle with the prohibitionists showing the venom and ferociousness of the dying rabid animals that they are. They are not going to go easily. They will reject the reality of cannabis with the ferocity of Karl (turd blossom) Rove flaming out on FOX news on election night.They will fail as state after state follows in the brave footsteps of the states of Colorado and Washington.Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy ride.The Reverend Bud Green

Oh my gosh! The ugliness!
There's a newscaster with a downcast face talking about the legalization votes. He said, "Legalized for anyone just so they can get high."Then he repeated, "Marijuana is legalized for anyone in Colorado."That's a lie. He did not say anyone over twenty one. He said "Legalized for anyone."He's angry and it's coming across in the news. And he's lying. It just spews out of him. As it has always seemed to do with prohibitionists.
