The people who campaigned hardest for this were probably to stoned to think it through properly.
On a positive note, anyone wanting to discuss cannabis use with a medical professional will find it more straightforward if that professional resides in a legal cannabis area.

Pretty sad state of affairs when people are willing to move to another state just so they can legally have access to a drug. Has the crime rate and DUI's increased since weed was made legal?

So here in the "Rocky Mountain High" we legalized pot....I even voted for it though I haven't smoked since high school. In all my years, I have never seen people become violent or drive dangerously. Perhaps laugh uncontrollably, but really, it's safer than alcohol. Here's the dark under belly many don't/didn't realize.
MANY people are MOVING HERE. What kind of person moves to a state because it legalized pot? The cream of the crop type of folks? Nope. I know, hard to believe.
Take a look at this story & video that happened today.
Nut job goes after people In a outdoor mall.
Also, my house went up in value 78k in one year. To me, that means property tax increase.
Driving anywhere and nearly any time is a nightmare. Our infrastructure can't handle the new population that just keeps going up daily. You can't find any house to buy, people are selling for well over their asking prices as there are bidding wars. Ok, so you rent. Nope. Rents are rediculous and there are people waiting in line for the chance. That means landlords get to be very chosey. So the people that have the highest incomes have the best chances.
I never stopped to evaluate all the issues related to selling pot legally. If all states went legal, perhaps it would be different. I'm for pot, it's not about that, it's just much further reaching than I imagined.
