Marijuana is Legal in Washington State as of today

Just a post to mark this historic moment.

Of course, this is just the beginning of the end.

Don't bring anything federally illegal onto federal property. Be a good neighbor. Wait to drive.

2. The war on drugs is dead man walking

If POTUS cracks down then litigate
The Feds have no evidence
The states have a mountain of evidence proving economic and medical efficacy of weed and hemp

That's why I think POTUS will cave. He does not want to die on that hill and be on the wrong side of history. My long held advice to all residents of all weed legal states

Don't drive the day you consume. At all. Even if you feel no longer numb. The testing thresholds are too low

Don't consume in public. If you do use a magic flight box. No smoke. No fire

Don't encourage your kids to consume until they are legal age.

Don't eat edibles unless you know who made it and how strong it is. This is a fast way down the ladder for novices and experienced users alike

4. KIRO News broke away

from programming at midnight to show people lighting up at the Seattle Center. People of all ages. Public consumption is a no-no but it was a party to celebrate.
They also showed the people lined up for marriage licenses after approval of same-sex marriage.

5. Freedom, what a concept

Seattle Police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee writing on the SPD Blotter:

"The police department believes that, under state law, you may responsibly get baked, order some pizzas and enjoy a 'Lord of the Rings' marathon in the privacy of your own home, if you want to."

7. 48 and the Feds. Don't get me wrong but ...

Getting the Feds off our backs will really open things. Pot can't be truly legal until you can grow it, sell it and use it without fear.

10. No. It will take removing MJ from the Drug Schedules

and treating it like alcohol or nicotine.

8. History repeating itself.

Alcohol prohibition came to an end largely because so many states repealed their own prohibition laws and refused to enforce the Federal ones. Without support from local law enforcement, the Feds just didn't have the manpower to close down speakeasies faster than they could reopen.
