    Likely evolution of ending its prohibition. Frankly, after the booze prohib was lifted, people went nuts and booze consumption skyrocketed and eventually leveled off. Same will happen with dope.

    Gonna be interesting how they handle various aspects of life where pot use is prohibited. Military, CDLs, pilots and mariner licenses, etc.

    Sadly the establishment doesnt beleive in personal freedom and are spending millions in florida to keep infringing on personal rights. And conservative media is pushing this 'pot makes you dumb' meme.

    Yeah the surge is predictable. When they dropped prohibition in Amsterdam the politician there was quoted some years later as saying (paraphrasing here) "we've successfully made pot boring." Taking the taboo out of it made it less appealing to the youth.

    The difference is prohibition actually made alcohol expensive and less available. This is not true of pot. Just about anyone can get it if they try.

    A Bit too late for one of my parents who really wanted it to improve appetite.
    Now it will be legalized for medical purposes at least, in Florida.

    And it's not just the young/under 29 (at 95%), over 65 voters are at 83%!
    A smaller but significant majority 55/41 also support Recreational Marijuana.

    I dont believe "Floridians" are "all fired up" - I'm sure the pot heads would view it as a victory, and especially those that actually need the pot for preexisting conditions, however I don't see the typical "joe" who has never smoked pot before going through the hoops for the ability to have a physician turn into a medical weed quack just so he (or even she can get high)..

    These arguments about weed are ridiculous..... Anyone who wants weed can get it as it is - especially in Florida and face relatively minimal consequences if caught...

    Hell, where I'm at and if someone gets caught with weed the cops just dump it in a ditch and let everyone go.

    Well, I see whole new industries born of marijuana, and I'm not just speaking of the recreational use there of. I see pharmaceuticals, textiles, plastics, and even biofuel. Our chemists should get to work on this. It's an amazing plant.
