The Rocky Mountain High just got a whole lot higher. On Tuesday night, Amendment 64 -- the measure seeking the legalization of marijuana for recreational use by adults -- was passed by Colorado voters, making Colorado the first state to end marijuana prohibition in the United States.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a vocal opponent to the measure, reacted to the passage of A64 in a statement late Tuesday night:
"The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will. This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug so don’t break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly."
Colorado said yes. Washington said yes.
It's only a matter of time before the legalization of marijuana becomes a huge issue in every state. Do you believe legalizing weed would better our economy? Do you believe it would make fiscal sense? Or, do you think it's just an excuse for pot-heads to get high legally?
If left up to you, would you legalize marijuana nation wide?
