Nov 6 - The State of Washington Legalizes Marijuana
 

 
The law will take effect on Dec. 6, 30.

Six states had marijuana-related measures on the ballot Tuesday -- three to legalize recreational use; Washington's I-502, Colorado's Amendment 64 and Oregon's Measure 80. Colorado's amendment showed early leads Tuesday evening.

Under Washington's I-502, anyone over the age of 21 would be able to purchase and possess up to an ounce of marijuana, and the state would regulate and tax the sale of pot.

Those wanting to grow and sell would apply to the state for a license. Estimates are that the new pot tax would raise nearly $500 million a year, much of which would be earmarked for drug prevention and education programs.

In an interview earlier this year on “60 Minutes,” the Deputy U.S. Attorney General James Cole indicated that federal authorities could take aim at any state laws that legalize pot, saying, "We're going to take a look at whether or not there are dangers to the community from the sale of marijuana and we're going to go after those dangers."

Attorney General Eric Holder was blunter in 2010 when he threatened to "vigorously enforce" federal law if California legalized marijuana (that measure failed).

Opponents of I-502 said they believe the U.S. attorney in Seattle would seek a court injunction to stop the law in its tracks.

“It's a fantasy that the state is ever really going to have this, it's not going to be legal, it's not going to work, the federal government is going to pre-empt this thing in five minutes,” said Douglas Hiatt of the anti-502 group Sensible Washington.

But that hasn't really happened with medical marijuana, and Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes, a backer of 502, added that he believes the Feds will back off if voters make pot legal.

“I don’t think the federal government’s going to ignore a clear voter mandate from the state of Washington,” Holmes said.

Only time will tell.

So here are the possible ways our newly re-elected President could choose to respond to the will of the voters in CO and WA:

1. Do nothing. Have no discussion with the head of the DEA on how to react to these laws and leave it completely up to a woman who does not know whether Meth or Heroin are as dangerous as Marijuana.

2. Instruct the DEA and DOJ to respond in force and step up federal drug enforcement activities to suppress the will of the CO and WA voters.

3. Instruct the DEA and HHS to reclassify marijuana as an uncontrolled substance.

Dudes getting all happy, not realizing the state is going to tax the product 25% 3 times before it even gets into your hands making the retailers force the cost onto you, plus dui's. Should of waited for a better initiative.
