    Wow, big development. What will happen federally and will this be the beginning of a trend? I hope so. Thoughts?
    Maybe if more states follow suit it will push Obama to legalize it on the federal level.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's my thought. And the fact that this ISN'T California I think is going to help the movement as well.

    Didn't California do something similar in 2010 which the federal government shot down?

    Well, Colorado has been a pretty big legal marijuana state for quite awhile. I honestly would have been shocked if this amendment failed.

    You're right, though I do know the federal government was making threats.

    The fact that this didn't happen this time (or at least wasn't as effective) though may be indicative of a change in momentum.

    Not having nuts in your cause can go a long way.

Either way, taking a criminal element away from marijuana is a positive for society as a whole.
    You're mistakenly assigning a commendable sense of altruism to the members of the minority community that make their income from selling pot. Taking away their only source of income will not be good for them, irrespective of anyone else's sense of benefit to the community. They don't live with their parents, they don't even have parents, they live on the street and make money by selling illegal pot. Look at what the end of prohibition did to responsible citizens like Al Capone.
