Living in Washington, I've yet to see convoys of DEA vans cruising the streets, rounding up little old ladies toking their joints. The Feds haven't made any responses yet to legalization. The word in the media is at best, they'll treat it like medical marijuana: turn an apathetic eye on the operations that stay strict to the regulations and bust those who violate state regs.

December 6, it will be legal to posses an ounce of weed for personal consumption. Plain and simple. The Feds can't change that. The details on growing and distributing is where the federal battle may get sticky. At this point the law makes possession legal but doesn't speak yet to details of how one is to acquire the wonder weed.

No they haven't done anything yet. But I've lived with this government for 30 years, I know what is to come. Through ambiguous law, they'll make it difficult at every turn to start any business relating to marijuana. They'll bottleneck progress and impede so often that people will give up on it. Then they can point to it and proclaim, "See! We told you this wouldn't work!" The drug companies and drug czars and anyone involved in the "war on drugs" are all deluded and powerful men. Anyone who has seen the Woody Harrelson narrated weed documentary or seen the movie Reefer Madness know that propaganda is their greatest tool. Anyways, it's nothing they've done, but they've already set their targets on it within days of the bill pass. If they do nothing, I'll rescind my complaint.

Obama gets re-elected and the first thing that they discuss is about pot.

Shouldn't the debt, war, and education be first on the list?!

No, no, no. Don't do that. That expected right wing complaining about the issues selected right after election. As if whatever he does right after the election has any more importance than what he does all term long. If he had stopped by Taco Bell on his way home, would you be complaining that "THIS is what Nobama chose to do after being elected? Taco Bell?"
