Washington & Colorado legalise ganja.

A break out of Common Sense has occurred across the Unites States of America.

Barack Obama is returned as President whilst there have been breakthroughs in what are already especially pacey 21st century social progressive movement issues such as gay/equal marriage, pro-choice and the legalisation of marijuana for commercial/industrial, medical and recreational purposes.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said - "Tonight, for the first time in history, two states have legalized and regulated the adult use and sale of cannabis."

"The voters have spoken and we have to respect their will."

"This is a complicated process, but we intend to follow through. That said, federal law still says marijuana is an illegal drug".

This is a massive victory for the legalisation movement NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). Government figures are suggesting a 25% tax rate on Weed. They must still be careful not to get undercut by the drug cartels however, otherwise it'd be a wasted opportunity.
