Weed Wins in 2012 Election Cycle with More Votes than Obama or Romney
With the 2012 election finally behind us, it certainly does seem like life is indeed stranger than fiction when you consider that the vote to legalize plain ol’ weed got more votes in Colorado and Washington than either Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
Now the curious, almost Boardwalk Empire battle against federal law begins. Just like Nucky Thompson and his clan of thugs must battle against the Volstead Act in the early part of last century, we find ourselves battling prohibition on another (less harmful substance) in the early part of this century.
But without the Fed on our side, knowing how to pass a drug test will still be a tool to keep in your toolbelt. It sucks, it’s not fair, but hey guys, we’re getting there. At least we have cheap, affordable options to pass any drug test available to us in this country. In other places, people aren’t so lucky, and tests are much more invasive. Some places we think are more progressive just aren’t–and so states’ rights where legalizing marijuana is concerned is a big deal, and a huge step on the path in the right direction.
Until the big day when the streamers fall from the sky and the federal government ends marijuana prohibition, be thankful that medical marijuana is legal in nearly half of all states, and recreational weed is now legal in at least two: Colorado and Washington state.
Hey, it’s not the end of the fight, but what it IS is the beginning of the end of the drug war in this country. And that is worth a smoke!
