Pot legal in CO
 
Begun, These Marijuana Wars Have

By Matthew Yglesias | Posted Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012, at 11:40 PM ET

The marijuana legalization initiative that seems to have passed today in Colorado (and a similar one that may well pass in Washington as well) is, I think, a bigger deal than people realize. Unlike jurisdictions that have "decriminalized" marijuana, this aims to create a genuine honest-to-God legal marijuana industry. It goes even beyond what the Netherlands has done, where small scale marijuana retailing is permitted but large-scale production and wholesaling is really existing in a gray area.

In principle, a true legal marijuana regime could be a totally revolutionary situation. Imagine amber waves of pot and big factories drying and packaging the joints just as in the heyday of the cigarette industry.

But before you buy land to start your marijuana farm, note that the drug is still illegal in the United States of America and that Colorado is one of the United States of America. Consequently, if you try to set up a large-scale pot business you're liable to get busted by the DEA. So expect a lot of clashes around this and a sticky situation for the Obama administration.

ever since the US prison systems became privatized, the war on drugs have been BIG money to companies such as Wackenhut. its gotta be more cost effective to just continue the failed "war on drugs" right?

Congratulations, Colorado! Amendment 64 has passed, 53% to 47%. The law becomes effective on the date of the official declaration of the vote by the Governor or December 6, whichever is earlier.

Colorado is the first state to repeal state marijuana prohibition and replace it with a system of regulation and taxation.

What becomes legal (from text of Amendment 64):


Section 16. Personal use and regulation of marijuana

(1) Purpose and findings.
(a) IN THE INTEREST OF THE EFFICIENT USE OF LAW ENFORCEMENT RESOURCES, ENHANCING REVENUE FOR PUBLIC PURPOSES, AND INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM, THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF COLORADO FIND AND DECLARE THAT THE USE OF MARIJUANA SHOULD BE LEGAL FOR PERSONS TWENTY-ONE YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER AND TAXED IN A MANNER SIMILAR TO ALCOHOL.

3) Personal use of marijuana. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the following acts are not unlawful and shall not be an offense under Colorado law or the law of any locality within Colorado or be a basis for seizure or forfeiture of assets under Colorado law for persons twenty-one years of age or older:

(a) possessing, using, displaying, purchasing, or transporting marijuana accessories or one ounce or less of marijuana.

(b) possessing, growing, processing, or transporting no more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants, and possession of the marijuana produced by the plants on the premises where the plants were grown, provided that the growing takes place in an enclosed, locked space, is not conducted openly or publicly, and is not made available for sale.

(c) transfer of one ounce or less of marijuana without remuneration to a person who is twenty-one years of age or older.

(d) consumption of marijuana, provided that nothing in this section shall permit consumption that is conducted openly and publicly or in a manner that endangers others

.(e) assisting another person who is twenty-one years of age or older in any of the acts described in paragraphs (a) through (d) of this subsection.

the law doesn't work like that

(b) possessing, growing, processing, or transporting no more than six marijuana plants, with three or fewer being mature, flowering plants

The law can work like that if they so choose

i don't see what the big deal is about weed, it's less destructive than alcohol.

i personally don't do it, but if people want to, they should be able to. the police waste enough money and time trying to stop pot dealers when they can be going after more important things.
