I am pleased to announce that marijuana is now legal in Colorado and Washington! 48 more states to go! :D

Don't toke and drive. In any order, without much care for the delay between them:

What are the actual practical affects of these laws? While decriminalization has happened before, these laws do take the next step, especially the law in CO, which regulates marijuana to be taxed by the state. However federal law still makes marijuana illegal, so will it even make a difference? Are we simply looking at perpetual legal battles between the fed government and these state governments? Or is it conceivable that legal commercial marijuana sales in these states could take place in the near future?

Anyone have any insight into whats to become of these developments?

Thank You! I can not believe I forgot to add that in.

OH HALLELJAH, HAIL ERIS! This is much more exciting news than the election. I don't live in Colorado but a victory for cannabis anywhere is a victory for cannabis everywhere.

Eh, how much does the Fed really have to gain from allowing marijuana to be legal, unless they just want to assert their authority.

does anybody else thinking how lame marijuana smoking is now that its legal. I actually debated that marijuana should remain illegal so people won't turn to harder drugs. Although i was playing devil's advocate, damn this logic is making sense.

Since the Federal Government still outlaws marijuana, you're never truly 100% safe from law enforcement. The state won't come after you, but the feds will reserve that right for sure.

With Obama in office people will remain lax... but more than likely, a Republican will be winning in 2016 and that administration will almost surely look to regain control of the drug policies as Bush did so well in California 10 years ago. If the feds decide to bring in DEA thugs then they have the green light whenever they want. As long as the DEA exists, there will be efforts to secure authority and funding for them, and that means they need to increase the demand for their services. Being a socialistic entity, they decide that demand themselves :/
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

The feds generally only harness their resources towards plantations. Not rounding up the smokers.

Legislative law in the United States is not generally explicitly ex post facto.

If the governor's sympathetic, some of them might get a pardon.

Agreed.
They are in jail because they committed a crime, just because it is NOW legal does not excuse their guilt.

I do hope they get pardons.
My work here is, finally, done.
