Colorado, Washington Legalize Marijuana

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 48•45 Nov 7, 2012

Voters in Colorado and Washington state adopted ballot measures yesterday that will legalize possession of marijuana for recreational use by anyone 21 years of age or older, although the drug remains prohibited under federal law. What do you think?

  • “Legal? I don’t want it anymore.”

  • “Getting those measures on the ballot and convincing voters to support them took hundreds of hours of hard work by the pro-legalization movement. I just hope they can somehow find a way to relax now that it’s over with.”

    Clarence Montuno –
    Systems Analyst

  • “Just think about it, man. How can something be legal and illegal at the same time? Whoa!”
