US States Legalize Marijuana
On Tuesday night Colorado and Washington legalized the possession and sale of marijuana for adult recreational use on. The two states defied federal law and put the prop on their ballots. This new law ended about 75 years of pot prohibition in the two Western states and the people, well the people celebrated like all through the night.
I mean c’mon look at the excitement in the picture below..
Voters in Colorado and Washington made themselves the first U.S. states to legalize marijuana for recreational use. People allover the country were talking about this most excited and some upset of course. However all the excitement could be short lived for those pot lovers because the federal government has announced that they will fight them every which way they can. ouch.. Unfortunate for the state of Oregon who also placed a similiar prop on the ballot had failed to pass the idea of liberal marijuana laws and medical marijuana cards.
The U.S. Department of Justice made a statement to the people because they still consider marijuana to be an illegal drug that can be over used and abused. The Department of Justice said: We are reviewing the ballot initiatives and have no additional comment at this time. They don’t want to make any dratic moved because if they do they can make some big mistakes after all the people voted it in if you just pull it away those who fought for it will get really upset. Plus it would contradict our whole system of government. Furthermore the US Department of Justice announced that enforcement of the federal Controlled Substances Act will remains unchanged at this point.

US States Legalize Marijuana
Scary enough the U.S. drug control officials made statements on Wednesday that they will fight this. The hinted signs of taking measures like they did in California this past year as they targeted to shut down marijuana shops and medical marijuana dispensaries. This was done because some of the shops don’t pay tax, some of the shops have more plants than what they are allowed to carry, and some shops participate in drug trafficking as well and have more than just pot or hash. Not that hash is legal but we’re just saying..
Pot Legal in Colorado and Washington
Washington has permitted medical marijuana use since 1998 and Colorado since 2000, but the historic votes by each state mark the first time voters have allowed for casual pot consumption. Under the ballot measures anyone 21 or older can possess up to an ounce from licensed vendors which the states plan to tax.
Now we’ll just wait and see what happens with the coming days. As for both Colorado and Washington who have officially been dubbed the new party states by online rumors. The two states should be expecting lots of citizens ditching home to come hang out and enjoy some mellow vibes. Who knows, it could be a blessing in disguise..
