Should Wyoming Legalize Marijuana Too? [POLL]
Colorado and Washington just became the first states to legalize recreational marijuana on Tuesday. Medical marijuana was also legalized in Massachusetts.
“To put this into historical context, there is no historical context,” said Tom Angell, spokesperson for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. “It’s the first time any state has ever voted to legalize marijuana — and two of them did it.”
Both ballot measures legalize recreational marijuana use only for adults, and cannabis would remain a controlled substance under federal law.
“The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will,” said Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, in a statement. “This will be a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug, so don’t break out the Cheetos or goldfish too quickly.”
So as other states start making changes to their laws on the subject. What do we think, here in Wyoming?
