    Colorado, Washington Legalize Recreational Marijuana

    Colorado and Washington passed referendums legalizing marijuana for recreational use, becoming the first states in the country to legalize the drug, according to ABC News.
    See that light way down the tunnel? It's a train, and in the next few years, it is going to run over the War on Drugs, one of the most idiotic wars that idiots in Washington ever started. Colorado and Washington are just the beginning of the end for a failed policy that only benefited those who have been making a profit off this war.

    Re: Colorado, Washington Legalize Recreational Marijuana

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong, but it is my understanding that while Congress is who declares schedule I drugs (of which marijuana is one) illegal, it is the executive branch that determines which drugs are on that schedule. So theoretically, Obama could remove marijuana from the schedule 1 list unilaterally? I have seen no evidence in his first term that he would do that, but could he do it theoretically?

    This makes me so furious... that I don't live in either of those two states.

    This is the beginning of the revolution. The rest of the dominoes will fall.

    Yes he could. He also controls departments like the DEA, ATF and such.
