What I'm curious about is in say 10 years time, how much will arrest/conviction rates decline in these states and how much will it affect their law enforcement budgets?
I know in Oregon, the major opponents of our measure 91 were the state sheriff's assoc. and the state DA's assoc. It makes me wonder just how screwed (from their perspective) it makes law enforcement.
Maybe the politicians could raise taxes on all the multi millionaires living in CO instead of forcing police to generate revenue for the state?
Also they should start a unicorn petting zoo
now we just need to work on heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, the phenyl alkaloids, dmt, prostitution, gambling... anything else?
let's get to work on that budget deficit!
Whoohoo! State revenue! Yeah who cares.
But stars for the detail on what eating this stuff is worth.
I'm glad we're finally seeing some progress toward getting rid of the kinds of vice laws that have been systematically used to imprison minorities, poor people, political dissidents and all sorts of other undesirables for decades, and I've no doubt the medicinal value is real, but legal weed culture is just the worst, it's like the shittiest aspects of Jam Scene, Hi-Tech Startup and Foodie cultures rolled up into one awful messed and packaged by Starbuck's, and in a sane society it would do more to lower rates of use than any drug war could.
