Colorado Legalizes Marijuana

While everyone had their 2012 election eyes focused on Obama and Romney, Colorado quietly legalized weed. Amendment 64 — the measure that sought the legalization of marijuana for recreational use by adults — was passed by Colorado voters.

This makes Colorado the first state to end the prohibition of marijuana in the United States. Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper wasn’t too stoked about the final decision, and made it clear in a statement earlier tonight.

The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will. This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug so don’t break out the Cheetos or gold fish too quickly.

LOL, he actually said Cheetos and gold fish. Of course there won’t be anyone legally lighting up anytime soon with all the red tape and whatnot, but with everyone on my Facebook Timeline claiming they are gonna “move out of the country” due to the Obama victory, maybe Colorado would be a better place for them to get away and calm their nerves.

Just a suggestion, lol. Check out the full story, and tell us what you think in the comments.

UPDATE: Washington too!
