Marijuana has just been legalized in Washington D.C., Oregon and Alaska as a series of pro-cannibus rally’s were brought in during the midterm elections.
The legalization has given an immense hope to push for more states by the marijuana lobby, two years after Colorado and Washington led the way in approving cannabis for recreational use.
On Monday, Washington, D.C. passed the vote by 65 percent in favor and 28 percent against, while Oregon passed by 54 percent to 46 percent. In Alaska, the vote was passed with a 52 percent majority.
Mike Elliot, who’s head of the Colorado-based Marijuana Industry Group, had this to say ‘more and more people are realizing that it makes sense to choose licensed, regulated, and taxed marijuana businesses over the drug cartels.’
Which completely makes sense, can’t help but think if and when New York will take part in the balloting? Maybe next year?
