Happy Legalization Day, Colorado!
The American Grass Staff!

(Reuters) - Pot smokers formally gained the right to light up in Colorado on Monday as Governor John Hickenlooper signed into effect a controversial ballot measure legalizing marijuana for adult recreational use in what proponents hailed as a “historic day.”

Hickenlooper’s signature, largely a formality, made Colorado the second U.S. state after Washington to legalize recreational pot use, and put it on a possible collision course with the federal government - which calls marijuana an illegal drug.

"Voters were loud and clear on Election Day," Hickenlooper said in a statement released by his office. "We will begin working immediately with the General Assembly and state agencies to implement Amendment 64."

When voters in Colorado and Washington state legalized recreational marijuana in November, they thought they were declaring a cease-fire in the War on Drugs. Thanks to ballot initiatives that passed by wide margins on Election Day, adults 21 or older in both states can now legally possess up to an ounce of marijuana. The new laws also compel Colorado and Washington to license private businesses to cultivate and sell pot, and to levy taxes on the proceeds. Together, the two states expect to reap some $600 million annually in marijuana revenues for schools, roads and other projects. The only losers, in fact, will be the Mexican drug lords, who currently supply as much as two-thirds of America’s pot.


Drug reformers can scarcely believe their landslide victories at the polls. “People expected this day would come, but most didn’t expect it to come this soon,” says Norm Stamper, a former Seattle police chief who campaigned for legalization. “This is the beginning of the end of prohibition.”


But the war over pot may be far from over. Legalization has set Colorado and Washington on a collision course with the Obama administration, which has shown no sign of backing down on its full-scale assault on pot growers and distributors. Although the president pledged to go easy on medical marijuana – now legal in 18 states – he has actually launched more raids on state-sanctioned pot dispensaries than George W. Bush, and has threatened to prosecute state officials who oversee medical marijuana as if they were drug lords. And while the administration has yet to issue a definitive response to the two new laws, the Justice Department was quick to signal that it has no plans to heed the will of voters. “Enforcement of the Controlled Substances Act,” the department announced in November, “remains unchanged.”

Wishing you a very happy Legalization Day!
The American Grass Staff

We are trying to substitute a legal, licensed system for what is nearly a wholly illegal system. That is going to take time. What we’re doing under I-502, beginning at midnight, we’re at least not doing any more harm. We’re not enforcing an extremely unpopular law against adults who choose to consume marijuana. But unless they are an authorized medical marijuana patient, they are already obtaining marijuana from illegal sources. Washington state is awash, as are most states, in marijuana, which is one of the points about what prohibition has failed in its purpose.”

Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes


Fifty percent of Americans, the biggest group weighing in, think marijuana will be legal across the land within 10 years.

That according to new Public Policy Polling data commissioned by the Marijuana Policy Project.

That chunk of believers outnumbered nonbelievers by a lot:

Only 37 percent said they believed legalization under federal law would not happen in the next decade; 12 percent said they weren’t sure.

The poll of 1,325 registered voters also found that 58 percent of Americans believe pot should indeed be legal. Thirty-three percent “felt strongly” about that; 25 percent “don’t feel strongly.”

Forty-seven percent of Americans — again, the biggest group weighing in — believe that the Obama administration should stand down on federal enforcement and allow Colorado and Washington to implement their recently passed weed-legalization laws.

Thirty-three percent disagreed.

Interestingly, 45 percent of respondents believed marijuana is safer than alcohol; 42 percent said it’s not safer.

Of those who “feel strongly” about the matter, however, pot being less safe than alcohol won by 33 percent to 26 percent.

Tom Angell, chairman of Marijuana Majority:

Marijuana prohibition’s days are numbered. New prominent voices are joining the chorus calling for change every day.

I get it - for social conservatives, starting to legalize drugs is just one more step toward a Gomorrah-like existence with which we are unfamiliar. Suddenly smoking weed isn’t a crime, bread is actually bad for you and dudes are marrying other dudes in churches. But for those who are suffering from the angst of progress, come a little closer. I might have something that will take the edge off.

This nation spent billions on the War on Drugs, to take down cartels and kingpins. The war was a dismal failure. The nation’s prisons are not packed with killers; they are filled with people who suffer from mental illness and drug and alcohol addictions. In Wisconsin, drug offenders accounted for more than 20% of the growth in the prison population from 1996 to 2006, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.


There are some blocks in Milwaukee where people live in fear because drug dealers run those blocks and violence erupts when other dealers try to move in on their turf.
