Colorado Legalizes Marijuana: Your Move Eric Holder

The one election outcome I actually cared about yesterday went the way I wanted it. I am referring to Colorado’s Amendment 64, which
regulates marijuana in a similar manner to alcohol. It is basically full legalization of pot for adults over 21. It essentially:
Makes the personal use, possession, and limited home-growing of marijuana legal for adults 21 years of age and older;
Establishes a system in which marijuana is regulated and taxed similarly to alcohol; and
Allows for the cultivation, processing, and sale of industrial hemp.
I’m proud to say that my state of Colorado led the way nationally by becoming the first state to legalize marijuana (although Washington passed a similar measure shortly after). I supported this Amendment and voted yes on it for several reasons.
